    Description

    The Cedars: Historic Victorian manor on 10-acre country estate. Updated and turnkey-ready w/5 bedrooms, 4 baths, guest cabin, 20-stall barn, landscaped grounds.This spectacular 1881 Victorian home has been creatively remodeled and restored. Its extensive features include large gourmet kitchen with a sitting nook, a cherry-paneled den/office, 4 gas fireplaces, exposed ceiling rafters, a large upstairs ballroom with 12 windows, a stone patio, a separate workshop, a log guest cabin, and 10 acres of manicured grounds with majestic old-growth trees.Situated on a low hill overlooking the riverfront town of Alderson, the property is accessed via a hand-crafted entrance gate. A gently winding driveway leads past the guest cabin to the white two-story manor house. The wraparound front porch provides a shady spot to sit in a rocker and survey the impressive property, which includes a nearby ornamental pool and fountain. Red double doors with matching screen doors open to the entry hall, which features the original oak flooring, a brass chandelier and a staircase with hand-carved balustrades. The home's main level includes the living room, den, kitchen, dining room, a bedroom and bath, a large mudroom and a double garage. The living room incorporates both living and dining areas. This generous space has a gas fireplace with a marble hearth and wood mantel, exposed ceiling rafters, two chandeliers, floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the front porch, and a large picture window with a tranquil view of the grounds and a neighboring pond. The spacious kitchen has many noteworthy features, beginning with its 14x4 marble island with seating for six, a large stainless steel farm sink and three Edison-style pendant lights. The cabinets are white and the other kitchen counters are textured granite. The cabinetry includes a lighted display cabinet with glass doors. With the exception of a Samsung side-by-side refrigerator with a freezer drawer, the appliances are Whirlpool: a convection wall oven, a microwave wall oven, an electric countertop range with a hooded vent, and two concealed dishwashers. Double barn doors, reclaimed from stables on the property, slide to reveal an impressive walk-in pantry. The kitchen also incorporates a comfortable sitting nook with an interesting chandelier crafted from deer antlers, a natural spot for drinks and conversation. French doors lead from the kitchen to the flagstone patio and garden. The cherry-paneled den is a warm, intimate space, with a stone fireplace, built-in bookcases, exposed ceiling rafters and a picture window overlooking the front grounds. The main level bedroom has two closets and a ceiling fan. The hallway bath, which has a decorative tile floor, a composite marble sink and a European-style shower, serves this bedroom, and also serves as a powder room. The mudroom is accessed from the hallway. Larger than a traditional mudroom, this space incorporates a galvanized wash bucket sink and a reclaimed barnwood from the property. A decorative staircase leads to the upper level and a feature found in very few private homes: a large ballroom with wide plank flooring, exposed ceiling rafters, 12 windows and 10 brass wall sconces. This truly impressive space could be retrofitted to serve as a family/recreation room or studio. There are four bedrooms and three baths on the upper level. The master suite is a corner room with a gas fireplace and four windows. The master bath has a large tiled walk-in shower, a clawfoot soaking tub original to the home, a double solid surface vanity and a walk-in closet. Bedroom two has a gas fireplace with a stone mantel, a walk-in closet and a covered balcony that overlooks the front grounds. The en suite bath has a tiled floor, a shower and a vanity with a solid surface counter. Bedrooms three and four share a hallway bath with a tiled floor, a shower-tub, and a double solid surface counter. Both of these bedrooms have ceiling fans and the original hardwood flooring. Bedroom four has built-in bookcases and drawers. A door in the hallway leads to a small balcony that wraps around a portion of the home. Sliding barn doors in the hallway conceal a laundry closet with front loading LG appliances. Forty-one windows in the home have been replaced with double-glazed insulated windows. The 500-square-foot log cabin, built in 1930 and only a few steps from the main house, has been remodeled and presently serves as a popular Airbnb. The cabin has a covered front porch entry. The comfortable living room has a propane gas stove, and there is also baseboard heat. The compact kitchen has a Whirlpool refrigerator freezer, a Frigidaire electric range, a Rival microwave and a 2-seat counter. The bedroom has a king-size bed with a hand-built headboard, and a wardrobe closet. The bathroom has a clawfoot shower-tub, a pedestal sink and an eye-catching wooden tile floor. The home and the cabin are beautifully furnished, and the option exists to purchase most of the furnishings. There are several outbuildings, including a large workshop and a substantial 20-stall barn with a hayloft. Both buildings have electricity, and the barn has water. The grounds have been lovingly restored, with 5 acres that were formerly horse pasture reclaimed as beautifully landscaped lawns. The towering majestic trees on the property include oaks, sycamores, cedars, pines, maples and birches. The Cedars has a long and interesting history, and it has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1978. The home was built in 1881 for Alexander McVeigh Miller and Mittie Clark Miller. Ms. Miller was the author of 80 novels, many of which she wrote while living there. Other owners include a Norwegian diplomat and Ruth Bryan Owen, a member of Congress who was the daughter of famed orator Williams Jennings Bryan. Framed newspaper clippings in the ballroom detail the estate's colorful past. The Cedars is located in Alderson, a quiet riverfront town with a seasonal far
