This property was purchased in the 1990's, during which time it was an active dairy farm and sheep operation. The dairy herd was sold in 2002 and the sheep in 2008. The crop land remains in active production.
The house is the perfect environment for relaxing and developing one's creativity. It is a peaceful property offering opportunities for being close to nature as you take a stroll in the woods or read and have a cup of tea on the patio. Family and friends find it perfect for long weekends and the biking community has embraced it being close to the Sugar River Bike Trail system.
