Imagine the number of pie crusts rolled out on the counters, the numerous Sunday dinners prepared in the antique country kitchen situated inside a c.1860s farmhouse.

Amazing how all of those vintage features have a timeless quality, don’t you think?
Aside from the three bedroom/two bath Colonial farmhouse, this 11+ acre compound includes a smattering of useable outbuildings, such as the bright and airy bunkhouse, two-story red barn with electricity, sheds, and chicken coops, all of which could be transformed into spaces for storage, working, or living.
