Welcome to the Rose Farm, a stunning example of expertly maintained 19th-century Georgian architecture with every 21st-century amenity, and all the comforts of a modern home. Tucked off the main road, yet minutes to Kingman Farm, and everything Durham and Dover have to offer, over 10 acres of pastoral fields and mature gardens surround this 1817 estate. The beauty and grace of this home live in the attention to original details such as classic interior architectural moldings, built-ins, paneling, hardwood, wood burning fireplaces and so much more.
The eat-in Chef’s kitchen with Lacanche range and subzero refrigerator, bright and open great room, formal dining room with Waterford Crystal chandelier, and screen porch all overlook the pool that begs for a summer dinner party. The library/den and 5 bright and spacious bedrooms, several with en suite baths and master suite with full dressing room, offer quiet respite after a day lounging by the inground Gunite pool or walking the fields and gardens. Offer guests their own separate entrance to the former servants’ quarters suite.
This property hosts several unique outbuildings including a reclaimed-wood tiny-house, workshops, a two stall barn, a former silo, and a recently renovated 1 bedroom stone caretaker cottage that can be legally rented. Generous storage space in the full attic, finished basement and above the 4-car garage round out this magnificent estate. To see it is to appreciate it.
