Natural light fills the room spotlighting the massive double-sided fireplace whose stucco-wrapped chimney projects skyward. A custom mantel carved out of wood reclaimed from an antique Virginia barn further underscores the custom design and detail that crafted this unique home.
On the east side of the fireplace is the wide-open entertainment space that flows out onto a large patio through French doors buttressed on either side by a bank of windows. On the west side of the fireplace is a second firebox that warms an intimate, bookshelf-lined living area referred to as the Christmas Room. Send me more information about 20 Old Barnes Rd.!

Just for Boaters
A 3-minute walk down the private way of Hubbard Lane--which begins right at the end of the driveway--takes you to the home's deeded access to a private Lagoon beach and mooring.
The mooring will accommodate power and sail boats up to a low-tide depth of more than six feet in what is a protected anchorage nicely shielded from the blows of a Nor'easter.
Bring all the boats and kayaks you want as there is plenty of space to store them not only on your beach, but also in the main house's full basement which has radiant heat floors, large workshop and 2-car garage. Send me more information about 20 Old Barnes Rd.!
