Big and Beautiful MLS #311286
This lovely farmhouse sits on five acres surrounded by rolling farm land. The original part of the house was built in 1847 (post and beam) and there is a 1901 frame addition and recent kitchen expansion. The owners have opened up the living room/dining room/kitchen area so this part of the house has an airy, contemporary feel with direct access to the outdoors via glass doors to a deck. Also on the main floor are a large front entry, a guest bedroom, convenient laundry and second bath, and mudroom by the back entrance. Upstairs are four bedrooms (three with cathedral ceilings) a full bath, and west-facing office. All the bedrooms have closets and two have anterooms--it's unusual to find such good storage in a house of this vintage. The property includes three outbuildings and holds potential for a small farm or other business. There is a 1901 barn with 1950s hoop extension and underground electric service. There's a large corncrib. And there's a metal equipment shed that can serve as a garage, also with underground electric service. The front part of the shed is insulated and makes a great party space! The grounds include fenced pastures, raised flower beds, a large vegetable garden, and an orchard producing cherries, apricots, peaches, pears, and apples.
