From the Zillow listing:


Ferguson Farm is a restored, classic brick Federal home dating back to 1784, embraced by sugar maples and stone walls. Located just outside the village of Woodstock on a quiet gravel road, the property also features a four-level Shaker barn and offers views across 83 acres of undulating fields, woodlands, and a 4 acre swimming pond. What sets this place apart are those intangible qualities: a deep sense of belonging, classic beauty, and a relaxed, easygoing vibe. Thank years of good stewardship and thoughtful renovation for that. The main house, with four bedrooms and six baths, features a spacious farmhouse kitchen with an inviting sitting area by the fire. For the end of the day, take supper on the porch and soak in the views of the sun setting over the pond. The gardens yield a bountiful harvest of apples and flowers. The barn serves as a home for chickens and livestock, offering ample turnout space as well as a fantastic venue for gatherings, a guest bedroom, office accommodations, and bathroom as well as space for yoga or a gym. Plus, there’s a workshop in the shed for when you want to tinker or be creative. An extensive network of well-maintained trails for riding, skiing or walking wind by the beaver pond, swimming pond and through the woods. In an area of large land holdings, just 10 minutes to Woodstock and easily accessed from Interstates 89 and 93 and the Lebanon Airport near Hanover.
