What I love about the home
This is a rare & exciting property with a wonderful story, a long long story which began around the 1850’s. The beautiful architecture is breathtaking and the home has been lovingly cared for keeping the original woodwork and character, yet softly updating to fit modern day needs. My favorite part of the property is the house, especially the charming wrap around porch. I can imagine relaxing on the front porch swing sipping lemonade and drinking in the peaceful setting. I find the historic barn fascinating as well. This property is delighted to have the next chapters in its story begin. Are you the author?
