Gillett House includes 10 acres at Old Gillett Farm. This historic home was built in 1870 with an addition & water tower built by German stone masons & woodworkers from 1906-1909. The sale also includes the Carriage House. The residence features 8,000 Sq. Ft. of living space plus storage and mechanical space in the attic and lower level. The home's design provides wonderful & versatile formal and informal living including beautiful bedroom suites, spectacular kitchen, formal and informal dining areas, large attic playroom and more which reflect the discriminating tastes of an era gone by. The artisan team of architects, designers, and contractors have created a home both inside and out that will outlast fad and fashion, which discreetly proclaim luxury, longevity, style and timeless elegance. ROOMS: The home features approximately 10,000 square feet of living space with a total of twenty-one rooms, seven bedrooms, and five full baths, one powder room, and three fireplaces. Main Level: Here you will find the graciously sized formal and informal entertaining and family rooms of the home including reception gallery, formal living and dining rooms, library, the pine room, loggia, kitchen, and a series of rooms to support a significant entertaining home of this era. Second Level: This is where you find the two palatial master bedroom suites. In the West Wing there is a two-bedroom suite, a second bedroom suite and office. The East Wing provides two additional bedrooms and green room. Attic Level: Not to be missed is the large attic playroom with beamed ceilings, window seats, and a half bath (not working). Lower Level: This level provides the support rooms one would expect including a mud room, laundry, wood shop and furnace room, plus a host of storage and mechanical rooms. The house itself has a great traffic pattern and plenty of adaptable rooms creating a warm, inviting environment for family, friends, and entertaining. To this day, the Hill embraces all who live on it, season to season. From its amazing vantage point, where sunsets and moonrises are seen unobscured, where the drama of approaching rainstorms is heightened, nature constantly inspires.
