Why Tina and Andrew Schmidt, Owners chose Hegins
From the moment you come down the lane to Clover’s Cottage, you will begin to breathe more gently, slow your heart rate and remove yourself fully from the hustle and bustle of your daily life. As you walk down the sidewalk to the cottage, you may notice the covered front porch swing, the picnic table where you'll enjoy an evening dinner or the open campfire and comfy chairs for storytelling and s'mores. A closer look may reveal the shaded hammock perfect for reading, and the original working hand well pump where children can have hours of fun. A small dock makes fishing easy and a large supply of firewood awaits you in the wood shed. This is only the beginning of what Clover's Cottage has to offer. There are quiet walks down the path to Pine Creek, where you can swim or float, or you can stick closer to home and listen to nature babble in the little brook right outside the front door. There is a canoe and row boat to float on the small pond or a covered footbridge to explore the nearby woods to search for signs of deer, turkeys and other hidden animals. You may hear the sounds of goats or see some peacocks that wander to the property from the neighboring farm. Pick some blueberries or wild raspberries for your breakfast cereal or take a walk down some of the many miles of country roads that surround the property. Clover’s Cottage was converted from an old flax mill built sometime around 1887 and sits along a stream and pond. The first floor boasts a cozy and well equipped eat-in kitchen, a laundry room and a convenient half bathroom. There is also a comfortable and rustic living room with a wood fireplace built from old reclaimed schoolhouse bricks. Because of its origin, the first floor is built from local field stones and has 18' thick walls (no need for air conditioning!) and a counter made from a huge cast metal slab from the original flax grinding equipment.
What makes this Cottage unique
The second floor opens to a small sitting room surrounded by three bedrooms. Each room is decorated in warm earthy tones and local antiques that evoke country charm and a restful atmosphere. The sitting room has original wide plank floors and is a great place for you to sit and enjoy a book or watch a movie. A screened sliding door opens to an expansive deck that overlooks the stocked pond. The outdoor deck is 10' X 36' and includes outdoor seating, a hot tub and a small bar. The luxurious and spacious bathroom is nestled between two bedrooms, a layout which is typical of homes of this age. It evokes a feeling of a country spa, with a beautifully restored claw foot soaking tub that allows for complete relaxation. There is also a walk-in shower large enough for two, with a bench and rain shower head. The bathroom is fully tiled and soft fluffy towels are the best of modern day comforts with timeless rustic treasures. The large master bedroom offers a queen bed, dresser and closet, as well as a day bed that can be utilized for lounging or sleeping. A large table at one end of the room will allow you to enjoy card games, crafts or conversation with family and friends. There is an exterior door in this bedroom that will offer a rear exit from the cottage or entrance to the deck. The second bedroom has a double bed with a dresser and nightstand and original wide plank floors. This room also has a closet and entrance to the bathroom. The third bedroom has a single bed and dresser with entrance to the bathroom and original wide plank floors.
