Unique 1840's, 5 bedroom farmhouse with rocking-chair porch, original wide floorboards, oak beams, comfortable bedrooms and a fabulous kitchen, the house sits atop a knoll overlooking 20 acres of rolling pasture, barns and pond.
Thanks to our automatic backup generator even power outages will not stop the fun.
A perfect getaway for family and friends, the house features a fully equipped, 1,100 sq ft. octagonal gourmet kitchen, complete with professional 8-burner stove, double oven (chefs and baker's will feel right at home) Italian tiled floor (radiant heating) and dining table for twelve. If outdoor cooking is more your style a large stainless barbeque gas grill sits waiting for you out back.
If you ever leave the kitchen, you will find a living room with cozy couches, perfect for conversation or watching a BlueRay or one of the hundreds of channels offered by Dish Network. On those chilly days, the propane fireplace quickly takes the chill out of the air and provides a soothing backdrop for all your activities. Not in the mood for television? There are plenty of games and puzzles for all ages just waiting to be enjoyed. Or, perhaps it is time for a sing-along around the grand piano.
All five bedrooms feature luxurious queen beds. There is even a bedroom on the first floor for those less excited about stairs. The master suite features an open loft with an extra full-size bed. There is a pullout queen bed in the living room.
The house is part of a unique farm, a peaceful place for bird and wildlife watchers or just those interested in the peaceful part. Horses graze on acres of pasture right outside your windows. Acres of manicured lawns lead you to private groupings of Adirondack chairs perfect for a morning coffee or watching the sunset. There are plenty of places to stroll – perhaps a walk around the pond to see how the kids are making out on their fishing expedition… a cocktail in the vegetable garden… a game of bocce on the back lawn… poolside picnic… or a relaxing evening in the private 6-person hot tub.
In the warmer months enjoy the fifty-foot fenced in in-ground heated swimming pool. The pool house is fully equipped with a shower, refrigerator, stereo and iPod dock, bathroom and plenty of seating and toys for long days of relaxation.
The ¾-acre pond is a great place to fish, swim, or paddle across in the 3-4-person rowboat. Sitting beside the pond is a stone fire pit that is just waiting to roast all the marshmallows and smores you crave.
