This Neo-Classical Colonial Revival beauty is rich in history and folklore. This home was described as opulent when built in 1910 by Professor Franklin W. Hooper for his summer "Cottage" on the old farm which had been in the family for six generations. It has stood the test of time with a complete renovation in early 2000 when the original plans and tools used to build the house were found. The result is the masterpiece it is today with three full floors of exquisite details and finished space. With 9 Bdrms, 7 Baths, 3 foyers, and 10 working fireplaces, plus a grand entry hall, formal and informal spaces, there is room to roam and entertain. Features include beautiful moldings and elliptical arches, gorgeous wood floors, lead glass doors, elaborate crown moldings, a grand staircase spanning all three levels, and a back stairway with detailed landing, Corinthian columns and cast bronze lanterns. A barn with two stalls and tack room was added for the gentleman or gentlewoman farmer, with fenced pasture and elaborate chicken coop. A lighted basketball court sits high on the lot, overlooking the view and makes it tough to keep your eye on the ball! Mountain views, gently sloping grounds, and a pond surround this treasured piece of history that lives on with the motto, "Joy To The World".
