    Description

    Welcome to "Long Stones", an iconic Redding property once owned by Daniel Carter Beard, illustrator of Mark Twain's books and founder of the Boy Scouts of America. This masterfully restored Antique retains its original detailing and character, yet it is perfectly suited for today's lifestyle. The bucolic 3.87 acre country retreat includes the 1812 manor house, an historic 19th century Carriage House with two legal one bedroom apartments plus a horse stall with tack room, an in-ground pool, an antique post & beam salt box that now serves as the detached garage, a chicken coop, and a potting shed. The five bedroom, four updated bath main residence has beautiful antique quarter sawn oak, southern red pine and Canadian pine wide board floors throughout, original beams, four fireplaces, and numerous built-ins. The chef's kitchen features Colorado Alderwood cabinetry, granite counters, center island with a 5 burner propane cook top, double wall ovens, a Vermont soapstone sink, a walk-in pantry, and large dining area. The adjoining butler's pantry has restored stainless steel counters and numerous cabinets. There are three stairways, a fully floored walk-up attic with a huge cedar closet, two terraces, a secret garden, a picturesque brook with waterfall and small pond, exquisite perennial gardens, old growth trees, 1/2 basketball court, lightly wooded field and extensive stone walls and rock outcroppings. An exceptionally rare and peaceful weekend escape or full time residence.
