What I love about this home
Historic farmhouse built in 1905. Completely renovated and updated with today’s modern conveniences yet still has the charm and characteristics from 1905 which includes hIgh ceilings, original lead windows, original pine wood floors, tin dining room ceiling, and much more.  Situated on almost one acre in a park like setting, totally fenced in, large deck with gazebo, surrounded by woods. Two large detached garages with lots of work space and can accommodate 4 cars.  Extremely private and quiet, yet within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and schools.
