Take part in the ultimate rural lifestyle with this gorgeous property with a home that has been meticulously maintained and renovated to keep the charm of the original 1830s design, but with a modern touch. A large addition was completed in 2008 to provide further bedroom suites. This incredible setting is ideal whether you want to establish either full or part-time residence, start your own Bed & Breakfast or lodging, or run a farmstead among the beautiful scenery. The 5+ acres feature Handsome Brook running through, with over 900’ along this year-round stream. There is also a small pond to enjoy. Walk the impressive grounds among fruit trees and vibrant landscaping. The property is ready for planting with raised beds or bring your animals with the fencing and shelter ready to go. The large barn is in great condition with a metal roof and awaits your ideas. Utilize the studio building to express your creativity. Filled with charm, this space was created with windows repurposed from Franklin’s library building and siding milled from trees from the property. Entertain or relax out on the back deck and porch, enjoying privacy while you listen to the sounds of the stream.
The heart of the home is its kitchen and this one has been fully upgraded for those who love to cook and bake. Have the best of both worlds with the top-of-the-line Dacor dual-fuel range offering a propane stove and electric oven. Two dishwashers mean you can easily clean up after the largest of festive gatherings. There is ample counter and cabinet space throughout. The living room is focused around the charming fireplace, built with stone right from Handsome Brook. Open the sliding doors to the deck and bring the outside in. Wide-plank wood floors carry through to the formal dining room and a large parlor offers even more living space. Retreat to the den, with its wall of bookshelves ready for your library. Curl up with a good book on the window seat, with a splendid view of the grounds beside you. The guest bedroom wing of the home offers a full bathroom, laundry area, and three bedrooms, two with their own private bathrooms. Each of these two bedrooms features sliding glass doors to lead directly out to the back deck overlooking the stream.
The entire second floor is set up as a private master suite – with a spacious sitting area/den/office, beautiful bathroom, and master bedroom with walk-in closet. The bathroom has a spa-like feel and the master bedroom’s large picture window provides an amazing view of the property. There is even additional storage in a small loft above.
The home is set up for efficiency with a geothermal system, making the home very economical to heat and cool, while being environmentally-friendly.
