This lovely eighteenth century farmhouse is set on 3 acres of wooded property with rolling lawns for activities and backing onto the Appalachian trail. The old 2 story barn with three stalls, a workshop and a huge second floor is ripe for finishing into a studio or office. This charmer boasts many original features such as beamed ceilings, a working beehive oven in the kitchen, 3 additional fireplaces and a wood burning stove in the convenient rear keeping room. Don't forget the spacious walkup attic, three separate staircases, 2 rear and one in entryway, original wide board flooring, and fabulous antique moldings throughout. Homeowners have already done some of the work for you including spray foam insulation, new windows, new well UV lamp, newer furnace and hot water heater.
