The Colt Tavern on the Old Traveler Road.This glorious 18th century property is every historic home lover's dream. Set on 17 acres of pastoral bliss with big sky and Taconic mountain views on a seldom traveled country lane. Around two centuries ago, the Colt Tavern was converted to a single family home and has since been lovingly restored with a Shaker-like simplicity by its owner, a renowned architect. The home's rich detail and depth of historic character are evident at every turn. Exquisite light is achieved through high ceilings and typical Georgian Federal architectural details, such as a five-bay facade with 12 pane over 12 windows, a Palladian window, and a center entry with transom window and sidelights.
