Welcome to â€œOrient Lodgeâ€â€¦a restored log bungalow built during the Arts and Crafts movement in 1904, located in the Long Ridge Village Historic District in North Stamford. Its 2+ acre property has water frontage on Saw Mill Pond and contains a 3-story stone and timber main house, detached 2 car garage with deck, and separate cottage. The cottage is believed to have been the original saw mill built in 1825, then converted to a carriage house with stables, and now contains a 2000 sq ft apartment above a 2 car garage/workshop. The stables still remain in the lower level. The main house features a 600 sq ft Great Room, with 25â€™ beamed ceilings, exposed log walls, and original floor to ceiling river rock fireplace. (Fun fact: a scene from the 2009 movie â€œGiganticâ€ was filmed in this room, with Ed Asner brewing tea in the fireplace!) Oriental features, popular during the Arts and Crafts movement, are prominent throughout the house, including ornate gold leaf doors between the living and dining rooms, oriental fretwork, hand carved wood screens, and etched windows depicting scenes of Asian countryside. In the lower level the original carriage loading dock remains, with massive doors that open to stunning views of the pond. Original landscape features remain, including river rock gardens, stone walls, and an Asian style artesian well. A truly special placeâ€¦for the discerning history and antique loving buyer.
