Charming mid-1800’s Farmhouse situated on 5.75±acres along a quiet country road. This lovely home has many upgrades including a nice modern kitchen and bathrooms, but also retains lots of historical character with original doors, wide moldings and large windows throughout. A roomy dining room with hardwood floors, bead board wainscoting and a bank of windows is located just off the kitchen. Through the dining room you enter the center hall of the home with a spacious living room to your right. This room features a wonderful cobblestone fireplace and huge bay, full of windows. A cozy den/office is just through the living room. Also located in the center hall is the foyer area of the home. A substantial and stately original wooden front door with lovely glass sidelights makes the foyer an inviting space. Just at the base of the staircase and to your right is a nice sized bedroom.
Ascend the staircase to the second floor. Once there, you’ll find four additional bedrooms and a large full bath with a jetted tub! Loads of closet space, large bedrooms, spacious hall and those wonderful second floor farmhouse windows which line the front bedroom walls, all making the second floor a pleasing and appealing area!
The home also has a large front porch with cobblestone pillars, unique wooden columns and distinctive trim. Wide plank floors and the plank ceiling are freshly painted. A delightful porch swing is the perfect spot to relax and take in the views in the evening. There’s also a wonderful side porch just off the kitchen with additional mountain views!
A two car garage is attached to the home making a convenient entry into the kitchen. An in-ground pool and hot tub are located to the rear of the house and just off the back of the kitchen. Fabulous flowers and gardens surround the home in the summer.
Two barns are also located on the property! One very large red barn which had been used as a dairy barn and a smaller gambrel-roofed barn which could be used for a horse or two and/or storage or any other suitable use.
