Hillside Manor - Captain John Miles erected this 1820 Federal-style home; the original construction had been much more modest than it's present 3,500 square feet. The exterior showcases both the geometric and simplified elements with features such as a pedimented gable, wide frieze, and corner pilasters. It is architectural details such as these that give this typically understated style the stately appearance of a country getaway. This estate sits upon 15 acres of both open and forested land. The grounds are landscaped with variegated specimen plantings and mature apple trees, resulting in visual interest with each passing season. This property leaves much room for individualization of use, as there are three separate structures apart from the main home. These include a large barn, three-bedroom cottage, and oversized potting shed. The barn has hardwood floors and a loft; it once served as a gathering place for community dances. The 1,401 square foot cottage has a south-facing walk out deck with awning. Both the homes history and quality of construction are apparent from the start; as one enters via the offset entry set upon a wooden veranda from which southerly mountaintop views can be enjoyed. Within the main house there is a first floor master that connects to a private three-season screened porch. Throughout there are generously sized rooms that allow for a multitude of living arrangements. This property is truly the quintessence of classic New England living.
