24-26 Paper Mill Road is an enchanting woodland paradise of nearly four natural land acres and a stream. Astonishing and majestic private woodlands with incredible natural views from the well-set house. Trails wind through a forest of mature canopy trees, “snags” beloved by the birds, and understory plantings. Darby Creek flows through the property, providing secluded natural pools and home to wildlife in total, splendid privacy, just 10 minutes’ drive from the center of Wayne. Stately in its design, yet manageable in scale, sits this sunny, three-bedroom colonial with modern amenities, back-up LP generator and updated kitchen and owners’ bedroom suite. Two car attached garage, central AC, family room with FP off kitchen. Thoughtful landscaping by noted designer, with extensive walls, multi-level patios and elegant stone stairs function as outdoor ‘rooms’ to connect and integrate you to the breathtaking scale of this beautiful land. Brick walkway leads through the four-season-interest cottage garden to a rose-covered trellis entrance with bluestone patio to front door. Elegant floor plan with excellent flow includes entrance foyer with closets and half bath, pretty hardwood floors throughout. Formal living room with sunny windows has built-in shelves and bookcases. Dining room and large eat-in kitchen both open beautifully to the sunny family room with log fireplace and picture window wall with vista of lawn and native plant meadow garden. Covered porch off kitchen has interchangeable winter windows and summer screens for year- round use and opens to covered breezeway to garage. Upstairs, three bedrooms and two full baths await. Owners’ bedroom suite, with built-in bookcases, has modern, spacious bathroom with skylight, glass stall shower, wide vanity, and custom, dual closets. Two family bedrooms with hardwood floors, bright windows and closets share a full hall bathroom. Pull down stairs to storage attic is easily accessible from one of the bedrooms. On the lower level, a naturally lit, north-facing artist’s studio, laundry area, and work bench provide space for hobbies, mechanicals, and ample storage. The lower level opens to the back lawn with easy access to two rustic outbuildings. One outbuilding is a woodworking workshop and one has been used as a backyard chicken coop and pen. Located on a quiet no-outlet road, neighbors walk their dogs and exercise daily. A U-shaped driveway provides ample off-street parking. This one-of-a-kind property is the ideal location for active individuals who are inspired by living amidst the beauty of the natural world.
