Additional Information

Description

This small farm was once part of a larger parcel. Now, as a 7 acre parcel, it is suitable for a small farm or homestead. We successfully raised nearly all of our vegetables and meat, as well as much of our fruit on this property. There are naturally occurring blueberries which could be cultivated to increase production. There is a large home orchard (approximately 20 trees) which has been recently planted, featuring heirloom and unusual apple varieties. The house is in a beautiful, private but easily accessible location. There is a large amount of road frontage on a well-maintained road. It is a special place, and we would like to see the house and land used for good.

The house, built circa 1856, is a traditional New England Cape, with attached series of sheds leading out to a large barn. It has 3 bedrooms, one bathroom, two parlors, kitchen and an additional room, which could be used as an office. This house has been in the renovation process and is still not complete- the interior is not finished and there is some exterior work that must be done, too. However, has a great many new improvements. The house had new siding & paint in 2015, a new roof in 2014, new electrical system (100 amp) in 2004, new plumbing system in 2010 (including new pressure tank and hot water heater), rebuilt foundation structure (including reset and mortared stones, new sills and framing members), new well and well pump in 2008, 2 new double-flue chimneys in 2003 & 2012, insulation (R-15 in walls/ R-30 in roof), new septic system in 2010 (stone and pipe bed). The home includes a forced hot air furnace and is also set up for wood heat. The barn also has had improvements- a new roof in 2013 and post and beam structural repair/replacement in 2012, new siding and trim.
