Overlooking protected farmland and abutting protected parcels, the house is an original 1850 farmhouse, with a reconstructed 19th-century Dutch schoolhouse addition. The Dutch schoolhouse, complete with the original hand-hewn beams, framing, siding, and limestone foundation, has been meticulously preserved. Antique wide pine flooring sourced from Nova Scotia has also been used to house the large great room with a floor to ceiling limestone fireplace, all of which opens to a true chef’s kitchen. Custom lighting throughout has been created from barn pulleys, animal yokes, and ice block tongs. The large terrace off the great room is created with walks, stone walls, and patio made from antique limestone, surrounded by mature gardens. There are 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths on 10 acres, overlooking 260 acres of conserved farmland. The house and property have been diligently maintained by full-time owners, a rare property.
