Our farmhouse was built in 1793 and renovated early in the 21st century. It offers all the modern amenities, but in a historic setting. The house has 5 bedrooms, including a master suite, and ample common spaces, including a huge kitchen with a six burner stove and two ovens, an enclosed porch perfect for meals on a summer evening, a pool, a large pond, and 10+ acres of well-maintained park. Please note, our house sits close to a highway. There is plenty of greenery to maintain privacy, but traffic is sometimes audible.
The house itself is filled with lovely 18th century details – wide-timbered wood floors, exposed beams, tiny nooks – but it's also roomy and comfortable. There are five bedrooms (one in the attic) and many common spaces – a living room, sitting room, open kitchen/dining area with a functional fireplace, enclosed porch, home studio, and large patio. The house sits on a sixteen acre plot, and much of that land is ready to be explored. There's also a pool next to our historic barn. The house sleeps ten. We recently installed solar panels on the barn, because we're committed to making Sweetbrier more sustainable.
