A country estate, an art gallery/studio, a family home, and a potential rental, all rolled into a single historic Colonial property.

That’s a lot to pack onto a 2.5-acre lot, but it succeeds, starting with a main Greek Revival-style farmhouse decked out with modern upgrades, wrapped in a well-kept, antique exterior. While a cool half-mill might be a bit out of most of our price range’s, we can still enjoy basking in this home’s attractive attributes…

…some of which are on display in the formal dining room with new plank flooring, new chandelier, and new pocket doors that open to the library.

Or, maybe the eat-in kitchen is more your speed, since it comes with flooring made from a hickory snow fence from Wyoming, quartz counter tops, stainless steel sinks, and a gourmand-worthy five-burner stove.

The living room seems like the perfect place to decamp with a good book in front of the home’s original fireplace…

…and, also on the main floor is a bedroom with a cedar closet.

Take the well-preserved staircase up to the second floor bedrooms, which include a master suite with walk-in closet and a spa-like bath with new fixtures.

As for the dairy barn, it comes with three levels, consisting of an artist’s studio and gallery space, as well as a private one-bedroom apartment.

Perhaps it’s the grounds with flower and garden beds, storage sheds, and a private pond that will light your heart on fire. We wouldn’t blame you. After all, the rolling green lawns with the lush hills of rural Delaware County providing the backdrop are the stuff of dreams, whether you plan to make it your family home, your vacation property, or a weekend rental.
