This farm, with lots of pedigree, has remained intact for many generations. The 26.3 acre property has a large house that includes the original historic farm house and a modern addition. The property has an income producing caretaker’s apartment in the barn, a guest house, well house, chicken coop, tractor shed, and garden shed surrounded meadows and fields. There is a tennis court next to the large vegetable garden and there are several appropriate sites for a pool if desired. The fields are surrounded by woodlands with paths and horse trails. The owners have been renovating the barn and the main outbuildings: constructing new roofs, replacing siding and flooring, repainting the exteriors while preserving the antique nature of the buildings. They have also completely renovated an old bathroom in the main house, and replaced and upgraded the barn apartment’s electrical system. These investments will help you appreciate this unique and beautiful this New England farm. It is a property with many possibilities: a working farm or equestrian compound, or a development opportunity for other houses without clearing forest and without sacrificing privacy. In addition, the land qualifies for a farm and forest designation to lower the taxes, or can be preserved in a trust or donated to generate a direct tax deduction. Most of all, you would be situated on a very quiet road surrounded by protected land while being close to shopping, MetroNorth and major highways. Seeing is believing -- this is truly the best of the south-western Connecticut; well-loved, peaceful and gorgeous.
