A timeless Colonial set in the picturesque back country offers a private compound nestled on Petticoat Lane.

The professionally landscaped park-like property is ribboned with classic New England stone walls, flowering perennials and sea grasses.

And with nearly three acres of privacy comes recently renovated tennis courts, a Swimm free-form pool surrounded by a bluestone patio and walkway and pool house.

Current owners have made several renovations over the last decade including totally reconstructing the tennis court to add a backboard and basketball hoop, adding new windows, skylights fixtures throughout the home and refinishing the hardwood throughout.

The home's lovely portico, recently rebuilt with copper flashing and copper light fixture, opens to a generously sized four-bedroom home with 4,296 square feet of living space.

Staying true to character of a center hall colonial, a large formal living room featuring a wood-burning fireplace, wide chair rail and large bay window sits on the left, while to the right is a formal dining room with an another bay window.
