Some of the most beautiful places are hidden right beneath our noses, waiting for us to stumble on the right spot. Tucked away in a forest of pines, this unique, private estate is cradled by the York River and, though it appears a secluded getaway, is just under one mile to of York Village. If you were able to step back in time, you could meet Mark Twain in this legendary cottage, where he spent his summers high upon the veranda, reviewing his manuscript. The same inspiration that took hold of Twain himself is alive in this home, now a perfectly restored gem. The en-suite master, chef's kitchen and breakfast area, and beautifully landscaped garden are honest to the Victorian design laid out by famed architect Frank Furness in 1885. ''The Pines'' has every modern luxury you could hope for in a home, including a security system, heated in-ground pool, irrigation system, deep water float and 9.5' ceilings. The neighboring barn offers additional storage, or space to create your own workshop to follow in the footsteps of the creative minds who inhabited the home's past. The remarkable floors, windows, and finishes are just the beginning- the true virtue of this property is the feeling you get when you are home. Private location - Please No Drive Bys. Some interior photos are from when it was last listed.
