Cokesbury Hill Farm is a captivating country retreat situated on nearly ten bucolic acres in Clinton Township. At the heart of this property is a stone-faced manor, a circa 1860 Colonial which has been carefully restored using period details as well as modern upgrades. Scenic landscapes are enhanced by a two-bedroom cottage with a fully-equipped kitchen, a classic red barn with three parking bays, a chicken house and fenced chicken yard, heated pool, pool changing shed and a charging station in the garage for an electric car. Fenced pastures, ornamental perennial gardens, and an extensive vegetable garden complement the manicured grounds. There is also a 19.62 kW SunPower solar photovoltaic system that generates enough electricity over the course of the year for the entire property.
Originally a clapboard home, it was purchased long ago by a couple whose wife desired a stone house, so her husband enclosed the exterior in fieldstone. Among the authentic interior design elements are beamed ceilings, original millwork, and three wood-burning fireplaces. A gracious fieldstone fireplace surrounded by illuminated shelving and cabinetry is the focal point of the spacious living room. A hand-painted mural of Cokesbury is a magical touch in the dining room.
In the newer portion of the home, an informal dining area connects the updated chef’s kitchen and dramatic family room featuring cathedral ceilings, a fireplace, built-in bookshelves, and cabinetry. French doors open to the bluestone patio edged by a stone knee wall, an ideal place for warm weather entertaining. The kitchen features a large granite-topped center island, a Viking dual-fuel range, and a second Viking oven.
The second floor contains a master bedroom adjoining a stylish master bath. A master balcony and separate dressing area with sink and built-in drawers complete this inviting suite of rooms. Additional bedrooms and another updated full bath are also found on this level.
A long list of modern updates includes Marvin windows, Pella doors, a 20 kW Generac generator, and central air conditioning, all lending comfort to the home.
