Welcome home to this stately and well-appointed center hall colonial on 2.5 acres in sought-after Brighten Knolls in Brinklow. Constructed in 1918, the 2nd millennium of the early 20th century. Owned by one family since 1958, this beautiful all brick estate home boasts high ceilings, decorative crown molding, and beautiful hardwood floors throughout. The incredible dwelling offers four levels, two fully finished with close to 300sq. Ft partially finished attic/loft area on the 3rd level with incredible potential for 2 more rooms, a closet for storage or conversion for a home office suite or an elaborate studio. Attention to detail, function, and quality enhanced the home during a fully structural rebuild in 1945. Entryway level boasts an exquisite wooden entry staircase, library area with built-in bookshelves. Southern exposure (Sun Number 92) lights up the formal living room that showcases a mantled wood-burning fireplace, and formal dining room, with custom-built china/display corner cabinets. There is a spacious kitchen, mudroom entry with a farm sink, plenty of pantry storage, a main level office, and a half bathroom. The upper level features a large master bedroom with plenty of closet space. 2 full bathrooms with the potential for a luxurious ensuite—spacious secondary rooms with dual closets, high ceilings, and sun-kissed rooms. The full unfinished walkout basement includes a separate storage pantry, freezer room, and lots of open space with high ceilings to accommodate a large family room, home gym, or recreation area. nThe estate’s grounds offer a curved circular driveway, a fenced-in riding ring/paddock, and property size can be used for horseback riding, specialized gardens, or customized land for family badminton, volleyball, football games, or epic Easter egg hunts. Originally a detached 5-car garage, two stalls with four windows were converted into an area with forced air oil heat. The other 3 open stalls can accommodate vehicles and/or bicycles, horse saddles, etc. One of the stalls is set up to fit a taller vehicle, small truck, or boat with a trailer. A 15-foot workbench with a large vise, five windows for lots of natural light, and storage shelves make it easy to do woodworking, and gardening. Garage structure can easily be converted to a fully finished and insulated garage, greenhouse, or stables. Incredible potential in the home to customize approximately 3190 square feet of total space for equitable growth. Close to Tridelphia lake reservoir for small boating, fishing, and picnicking. Minutes to restaurants and shopping in Olney, ascending on the border of Howard County, close to the ICC, and a straight shot down New Hampshire to Historic Brookville.
