From the Zillow listing:


Step back in time in this warm and inviting countryside New England Colonial sitting proudly on its 3.61 ac, hugged perfectly by serene open pastures & accented by stone walls, open pastures, black raspberry bushes, apple trees. So much original historic charm and character fills this home: the handsome foyer staircase and doors, wood paneled fireplaces, wide plank wood floors, rustic exposed wood beams, original doors, back staircase to kitchen, walk up attic w/ old “smoker” chimney and even the original barn (now w/gorgeous renovated interior, office/apartment & wlkout useable basement). Enjoy the warmth of the 5 fireplaces throughout and just the abundance of charm throughout….and not your average vintage basement either-stellar condition, reinforced and stone flooring and so tidy, 2 oil tanks, and a little area for possible wine cellar too! The barn/garage has had extensive work done including insulation of exterior walls, reinforced floors, and unfinished oak hard-wood plank floors/wall paneling-use as a garage or horse stables again; upstairs boasts a 1 BR guest apartment/office and it’s full walk-out basement has fabulous natural lighting from big sliding windows & can be used for a workshop or animals. The backyard provides such a perfect place to relax and enjoy the nature and beauty that surrounds. So much more to say – but you have to walk through to experience it all & soak it all in!
