Banks Place Farm, a rare find in the heart of Southport Village. This 1835 Greek Revival home has been meticulously restored, renovated and expanded, is a study in refined craftsmanship, bespoke elegance and modern amenities. Private 5.4 acres with a classic red barn is home to native gardens, an apple orchard, and natural stone walkways. Multiple living spaces offer flexibility for today's needs. Cooking and design work in tandem, and is celebrated in the kitchen and dining room addition. Custom cabinetry, multiple workspaces and top of the line appliances complement this ultimate gourmet kitchen. The great room with soaring ceilings provides room for everyone to relax, share and connect. An ultimate Work-From-Home office is easily converted to a guest room with custom hidden Murphy beds. New master suite has a quiet simplicity, with tall ceilings, a dressing suite and master bath that blends up to date luxury with historic charm. Bedrooms one and two share a large new hall bath. New third bedroom suite has sweeping views of property. A hinged bookcase in the second floor hallway hides hidden stairs to the third floor. Extensive renovations include the use of the latest technologies for all new electrical and plumbing, geothermal wells for heat/ac, and heated stone flooring. Historic details were lovingly restored and copied, and considered in the choices for new siding, roof, flooring, windows and doors. Close to beach, village center, harbor, library and train station!
