Under the control of Landscape Architect Bernice M. Wahler And her husband, Joe, the landmark of this sandwich, locally known as the “Jelly House,” is ready for the next chapter. Built in 1857, the house became famous in the 20th century when residents opened a roadside kiosk to sell beach plum jelly.

The roadside stalls are old, but the property still has two buildings, a farmhouse and a barn. People still live in farms. Animals have been vacant in the barn for a long time.

Visitors are greeted by a flat front yard lawn lined with trees and a wide driveway ending with a privacy hedge. The walkway leads to a staircase with a distorted monster knocker and a bright red front door. But behind that door is nothing intimidating. Only renewed and expanded homes.

The foyer features a staircase with white rises and black treads, and a black door on the left guards the entrance to the formal dining room. The black door, one of the many doors in this house, works in tandem with the black framed windows, as opposed to the white walls and picture frame moldings.

The dining and living rooms share a knee-high cabinet covered with white marble and front and rear spaces bisected by a triangular red brick chimney that tapers toward the ceiling. The chimney is lined with stainless steel to accommodate a wood stove. The ceiling is dotted with embedded lighting, while the dining room has a bronze chandelier with exposed light bulbs.

The first floor of the first and second floors is a fir of heartwood with an ebony stain.

The living room faces a 224-square-foot eat-in kitchen, with embedded lighting, and a long island with three-seat seats, drawers, and a beverage refrigerator. A coffee bar with open wooden shelves, a small ice fridge and a small sink awaits a Java break in the morning (or late afternoon). On the side of the bar is a white shaker-style cabinet that runs from floor to ceiling. All the cabinets on the other side of the kitchen are below. The appliances are stainless steel and include a premium gas stove in front of the backsplash of oversized porcelain tiles designed to look like wood with slots. There are twins on the other side of the room. The countertop is Corian quartz with a marble finish.

The kitchen opening leads to the side entrance. Mud room with porcelain tile floor, washing machine, closet and built-in cabinet with flat panels. Half bath in line with the minimalist design of the house: It holds a modern dresser in the mid-century with slender legs covered with a sink in the container.

On the second floor, there is a large washing machine and its associated dryer, underneath the built-in wooden shelves. This level has a primary suite, two other bedrooms, and a main full bath.

At the entrance to the primary suite is a large coffee bar with cabinets. The bedroom is 296 square feet and has an arched roof of a New England farmhouse, which has two skylights. The third is in a private bathroom with a stall shower with subway tiles, a built-in cabinet, an oval dresser with a container sink, a washbasin, and a tub with wall-mounted equipment. increase.

The remaining two bedrooms range from 117 to 97 square feet and share a bathroom with skylights and a shower room with white subway tiles. The larger of the two bedrooms has a single-door closet and two windows. The smaller ones have small windows, skylights, built-ins, and storage areas behind high-shoulder doors.

Back in the kitchen, the folding doors open towards a railless deck shaped like a half moon. With a retractable awning, it’s the perfect place to relax after a swim in the new heated ganite pool.

Directly opposite the garden, the barn is divided into two living units, which the owners call “The Stable” and “The Hayloft”. Both feature exposed beams and white walls.

According to listed agents, Hayloft on the left borrowed for $ 2,100 a week about three years ago. It is believed to date back to the 1700s. Currently, there is a pool table on the first floor, a built-in sleeping loft on the second floor, a large storage space, and a private bathroom with a shower. Sleeping lofts are not included in the bedroom total.

The stables are on the right and date back to the 1660s. Kitchen cabinets, ceiling beams and stairs were maintained during the remodeling. This unit has a kitchenette, laundry, shower bath, bedroom on the ground floor, sleeping loft on the second floor, can easily accommodate three full beds and can accommodate exercise equipment. The second (shower only) bath is just inside the entrance.
