Welcome to 3 Courtney Road! The original home to Sedgely Farms, The James Armor House is ideally situated on 2.42 acres. A picturesque winding driveway leads to this stately home that is tucked away behind mature trees that border the property. Originally constructed in the early 19th Century, the home was expanded in the mid-19th Century and again in the early 20th Century. The original barn has been converted to a 2-car garage with stairs that lead to a spacious attic. A rear addition to the garage is the ideal space for a workshop, exercise room or studio. The current owners converted a side porch into a beautiful Sunroom that is now used as the main entrance to the home. Dutch doors from the Sunroom lead to the original Parlor that maintains original woodwork, storage areas and a wood stove. Originally two rooms, the living room is now a large open room with built-in bookshelves and a 2nd wood burning fireplace. Tucked away storage cupboards, deep window sills & the original front door to the home remind us of the 1850's origin and charm of the room. A converted porch, situated between the Living & Dining Rooms, features a wall of windows that offers beautiful views of the property. A spacious, traditional Dining room features original woodwork & hardwood floors. The butler's pantry provides an abundance of storage space & a convenient prep sink. The kitchen has been updated with granite counters, tile backsplash and updated appliances. Attached to the kitchen is a breakfast room and rear door that leads to the side yard & patio. 2 powder rooms and a laundry room complete the 1st floor.

The 3rd floor offers 2 additional bedrooms plus a full bath with a classic claw foot tub. Deep window sills, with charming custom pillow seats, grace most of the bedrooms. Custom shutters can also be found throughout the home. Taking care to preserve the historical significance of the home, the current owners have lovingly restored the property with significant updates including: Roof, flashing, gutters (2009), Metal roofs, Steam Boiler (2015), electrical, plumbing & sewer updates, Sunroom addition, enclosed back porch and the list goes on!
