This Victorian farmhouse isn't overly fancy, but in my humble opinion, a good farmhouse shouldn't be. It's on 3 acres.

If you are looking for a beautiful old farmhouse in a quaint village, look no further. This 1436 sq ft home has 3-bedrooms, 1 bath and sits on 3 acres of land. If you want to relax, sit on your front porch and take in the aromas from your flower gardens, listen to the babbling brook just across the road from the property. The attached barn provides parking for a vehicle and plenty of additional space for storage and a workshop. This home is a great place to make everlasting memories with your family and friends.

This is totally my kind of house! Dates to 1743 and sits on 5.5 acres.

Great opportunity to own 5.5+/- acres of land with a historical two story home and outbuilding. Located in a quiet country setting surrounded by all that mother nature has to offer. The home is highlighted with tons of character from the cedar exterior to the exposed beams and charming decorative brick fireplaces. The original home was built in 1743, in 1800 the largest portion of the home was built - front two story section - and then in 1970 the bathroom addition was added on. Bring your own personal touch and a little TLC to make this home your one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Don't miss out...Call today for more details and schedule a private tour!
