"BUYER'S INCENTIVE" - IN ADDITION TO THE PRICE REDUCTION, A $20,000 CREDIT WILL BE GIVEN AT CLOSING FROM THE SELLERS TO PERSONALIZE THIS HOME AND MAKE IT YOUR OWN! AN INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN A HOME OF THIS CALIBER WITH THE OPTION TO ADD A PERSONAL FLARE. This great colonial, set atop a private knoll in the Majestic Estates neighborhood, boasts five bedrooms and over 5,200 finished square feet of impeccable construction. The home is located in LaGrange, west of the Taconic, in the Arlington School District. The Energy Star central air conditioning system, a MAJOR investment and upgrade, was just installed BRAND NEW in March. Installed was a Energy Star 5 ton central air conditioning unit and a 2.5 ton mini-split heat pump which provides both heat and air conditioning while operating at a quarter of the cost of oil. The heat pump operates down to 0 degrees when many only operate down to 30 or 32 degrees. Peacefully drive up either side of the circular driveway through a blend of mature Oaks, Pines and Maples. The surrounding yard lends a sense of open space with the security of a light, mature forest encircling the perimeter for peace and privacy. In Spring, you'll have the pleasure of seeing the beautiful blossoms of the Apple and Dogwood trees. The three car oversized garage blends naturally into the architecture of the home. Upon entering the grand foyer through the double front doors, the first thing you'll catch is the massive circling staircase leading to the second floor adjacent to the french doors that transition to the oversized living room. From there, a formal dining room, large kitchen, eating area and cozy four season room with towering vaulted ceilings and panoramic glass all around. Following the front spiraling grand staircase to the second floor, make your way to the spacious, private master with en suite and double walk-in closets. Down the corridor, you'll find the large second and third bedrooms and laundry room across from the rear staircase. Walking through the end door you'll find a guest or in-law suite with two bedrooms and separate bathroom - perfect for extended family and friend stays or children. Behind the property sits 111 acres of land with a conservation easement meaning it will remain forever wild and private. This home lends itself to a multitude of tastes just waiting for the new owner to characterize and enjoy for years to come. It's very rare to see a home of this size and stature in this location in this price range. Heating is baseboard hot water in the main house, radiant slab in family room, and electric in two room private suite. The home only uses in the vicinity of 1,000 -1,100 gallons of oil per year for both heat and hot water! During a NYSERDA audit a few years ago, the only thing recommended to improve efficiency was converting incandescent light bulbs to LED! Come see for yourself before it gets scooped up!
