You’re in a time warp as you pass through the tiny Village of Wayne along Army Trail Road. Except for the cars, the scene isn’t much different than it would have been 100 years ago.
The traffic slows to observe a 25 mile an hour limit, and the entire pace of life seems to slow down. Horse crossing signs are prevalent, a reminder of the time when raising horses was the main industry in Wayne.
As you cross Dunham Road the homes are on lots of 4 acres or larger, a once informal minimum that’s become the norm.
The stone and brick home is richly detailed and full of pleasant surprises, including a delightful Christmas tree room hidden behind bookshelves and a party-sized mud room with a wet bar and full bath.
The home was built 6 years ago for the current owner who meticulously and tastefully selected a very high level of finishes. A number of soaring two-story spaces punctuate the mass of a home which beautifully navigates the tension between stately grandeur and casual informality.
The home is priced at $2,600,000 and also includes a sprawling, largely unfinished basement.
