Home Showcase: A house for horse fans

posted in: News | 0

With 16 Main Street in Dover, you don’t just get a thoughtfully renovated 1812 antique Colonial, you also get to make your equestrian dreams come true.

Is there anything better than having your beloved companions whinny at you when you come home from work? For the horse girls and horse-girls-at-heart, the gracious family home holds the promise of having all your favorite things all in the same place.

Set on 2.84 acres with mature trees, landscaping, and even room to add a pool, the estate dazzles with a main house and two-level barn.

Families, especially those that love to host, will appreciate the home’s many spaces for entertaining, including the oversized dining room with fireplace and family room with custom built-ins. Naturally, there’s an updated gourmet kitchen with radiant heat, pantry, and adjoining sitting room with a wood stove and oversized windows looking out over the grounds.

Five bedrooms, including a primary suite with a marble bath, occupy the second and third floors, as does a bonus room that can be turned into a playroom or home office. Among the list of recent updates, you’ll find new powder rooms, a mudroom, HVAC, and generator.

Outside, the expansive grounds provide a parklike setting for outdoor living. There’s a brick patio for dining and gathering by the firepit, a covered gazebo, and of course, the two-stall barn with fenced paddocks for your horse pals. Nearby Noanet Woodlands offers welcoming trails for riding, and Dover is in prime horse country.

On the market for $2,295,000, the sale of the property is represented by Annie Bauman,Jane Johnstone and Peggy Gemelli with The Bauman Group of Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty.
