We pulled up and immediately fell in love with the place, said the current owners who would make this 23.5-acre property their country home for the next 30 years. Over time they connected the original barn and farmhouse, which originally was to be built as a one-room home over 200 years ago but ended up as two bedrooms on the second floor and attic with bedroom and storage areas. The oldest deed found is dated 1851, though we believe it was built even earlier. The current owners (serious green-thumbs) created their own secret garden conservatory with an indoor in-ground stone pond to enjoy year round. They love their plants so much that they added a balcony to the upper-level master bedroom so that they could wake up and walk right down into their little slice of nature. Our favorite part of the house is the room we refer to as the Great Hall, which sits on the upper level of the original barn. Once upon a time, it was home to horses (two horse stalls) and chickens. In fact, at one time, the owners created a walking path for a neighboring horse to visit them. They even built the water lily pond for the pure pleasure of watching the wildlife and listening to the bullfrogs. The large open space full of natural light is wonderful for fall festivals, large gatherings, or whatever your heart desires! Perhaps you will take this unique structure and suit it to your own lifestyle, or maybe you will start from scratch and build a new dream home! There is even potential to subdivide. The one constant is the prime location with gorgeous landscapes. Besides the gorgeous natural landscape, this home features modern amenities including solar panels and natural gas on the property. Be sure to schedule your special tour to see the possibilities for yourself!
