Home Features

  • The 1920's farmhouse has been fully renovated and features a perfect floor plan for comfortable entertaining inside and out. The open kitchen with leathered granite countertops and new SS appliances and an amazing pantry is the heart of this cozy home with a formal dining room ready to host a large gathering for Thanksgiving. There are three bedrooms upstairs including a master bedroom with a full bath. In addition to the kitchen and dining room there is a library with built in book shelves, a cheery breakfast room and a bath with a washer and dryer downstairs. Two zone Trane heat pumps with LP back-up provide heating and cooling. Recently installed double pane windows provide beautiful views out every window. A spacious deck and sunken hot tub are the perfect place to enjoy morning coffee or evening fireflies. The setting is delightful under the boughs of a centuries old white oak, the home sits, on a knoll overlooking the back pasture without another home in sight.

Lot Features

  • The 12.8 acres is all open with a buffer of hardwood around the perimeter. The soils are excellent with good pasture, mostly orchard grass, fescue and clover. The terrain is level to gently rolling. It easy and safe to maintain. There is a good spring at the back of the property that has never been dry. I have had seven horses here in the past and still needed to bush-hog three times in the summer. From a horse farm management stand point, this property could not be more ideal.

Horse Facility Features

  • Truly, the perfect small horse farm with three large pastures encircling the home site and a grass riding ring beside the house. A well designed pole barn with a tack room serves as run-in for the horses and equipment storage with two hay lofts. The simple design would easily accommodate four stalls with a center aisle if desired. There is power and hot and cold water to the barn.
