Don’t settle for ordinary - check out this beautiful established farm. The 2763sf home has an aura of timeless beauty, from the classic center hallway with graceful curved archways to the wood paneled vaulted living room ceiling to the delightful trim that graces the front porch. Fanciful touches abound - note the pair of wood squirrels adorning the stair posts, the honeybee knobs in the kitchen, and gargoyle downspouts. The main floor includes a great room with masonry fireplace, plus a separate parlor, a dining room with fireplace and custom bookcases, kitchen, and a luxurious master bedroom suite. Upstairs you’ll find two large bedrooms and a full bath. The interior trim level is distinctive, and the tall arched windows allow incredible farm views. The kitchen has tiled floor and black granite countertops with extra deep farmhouse sink, plus a walk-in pantry. The master bedroom has a trey ceiling, walk-in custom closet, and his and hers bathroom - the deep clawfoot soaking tub for her, of course, and a large tiled shower for him, plus individual commodes and vanities. The adjoining room makes a perfect office or nursery.
The 456sf apartment above the attached two car garage has 9’ ceilings, a parlor, galley kitchen, plus a bedroom and private full bath. Adjoining the garage is a spacious dog room, with direct access to the fenced backyard. This room is heated and cooled, and could also be a wonderful workshop. The extra deep garage is perfect for your pickup truck.
The custom Victorian farmhouse was built in 2005, with energy saving features like cellulose insulation, double pane insulated windows with vintage design, and a home automation system. The HVAC and hot water systems are zoned for efficient use, and both the home and barn are wrapped in low-maintenance cement fiberboard siding.
Take note of the extensive landscape plantings and classic white picket fence defining the home area. The garden includes a lovely koi pond. The farm is fully fenced, with classic three board fencing backed with 2x4 horse wire with electric at the top. An automatic gate ensures your privacy. The driveway is circular, making trailer access a breeze, and the barn center aisle is sized so you can drive right through - which should please your farrier and vet on rainy days. The barn is 35’ x 45’, with 4 matted stalls and room to add four more, and has an 8’ shed on one side. The modular stalls have sliding doors and swing out feeders. There is a fenced poultry yard adjoining the barn. The land is level, and mostly pasture with a pond and woods towards the rear.
