Description

Remarks

Great Southern exposure + VIEWS in this 1800's rambling farmhouse with six fireplaces, sitting on 32 beautiful acres with approximately 18-20 acres open. Beautiful shade garden under the magnolia tree that shades the spacious front porch & the fenced vegetable garden surrounded by perennials is why this property is a highlight of the Franklin County Land Trust garden tour. This antique home has many original features intact & virtually every window looks out onto a pastoral view. First floor bedroom with charming fireplace & bath. Beamed large second bedroom & private bath on first floor with massive original stone fireplace could be in-law apt. 2 of the upstairs bedrooms have fireplaces with beautiful paneling. Spacious sunny kitchen with tile floors looks out onto the gorgeous long distance view. Run in shed & stall for your horses or other animals + another small building for storing hay & tack. If you are looking for that quintessential New England farmstead, look no further.

There are also 60 high bush blueberries.  Land could be well suited for a U-pick farm or great for grazing animals. Historicaly it was used for dairy but the dairy barn is long gone.
