From the Zillow listing:


This is great! A small gentlemen’s farm and a quaint village. Enjoy the warmth and character of this refreshed antique cape amidst pretty gardens and stone paths. A 2-stall stable will house your critters where they can romp out in the pasture and be close by. Their water is supplied by a small stream running through the field. The large barn is currently used as a work shop and 2-story storage. It can be additional housing for livestock, or with some added floor support, can once again be a garage for autos. The side yard is fenced in keeping smaller friends safe. Up a rise to the top of the acreage is an established garden large enough to feed the whole family and enough to share. Once inside, the adequate space accommodates friends and family at the kitchen island, or more formally in the dining room, all kept cozy with a pellet stove. The living room boasts a brick fireplace and exposed beams. The first floor bedroom is conveniently away from the other 2 bedrooms and loft sleeping upstairs. All the rooms have replacement windows keeping the heating costs down. A first floor laundry, screened porch and sewing room gives everyone space to enjoy. The well maintained country charm and the convenience of walking to all village amenities make this gracious home a must see and a gem to treasure.
