Dating back to 1835, this Millbrook Colonial farmhouse includes tasteful restorations to the 1,990-square-foot interior. 

We love an old house as much as the next old-house-lover, but what we love even more is an old house that clings to its historic character while providing plenty of updates where it counts. That’s exactly what this five-bedroom farmhouse has to offer, as well as a quiet, rural setting just a stone’s throw from a stream and waterfall.

Its original features have been polished up to impress, like the hardwood floors, exposed ceiling beams, and brick living room fireplace. And, yes, it works!

The quarter-acre lot includes a two-car detached garage, as well as a big backyard. You’ll need to bring your gloves and gardening tools, however, since it’s essentially a blank canvas awaiting your vision. From here, Millbrook village is just a little over a mile away, convenient for dining and shopping. Other nearby attractions include Innisfree Gardens, the Trevor Zoo at Millbrook School, and the Omega Institute.
