This serene & peaceful handcrafted shingle-style farmhouse is centered on 60 acres of wooded, riverfront land with western views bordered on three sides by 2,600 acres of state forest. Two streams, a koi-filled, spring-fed pond, and trails throughout the property, as well as the state forest, make this an outdoorsmen’s and privacy lover’s dream. The 3,680 square foot, four-bedroom, three full bath home boasts two raised hearth, native fieldstone fireplaces and a wrap-around ground floor deck facing sunset views. Features include a second-floor bathroom with a double shower as well as a large claw foot soaking tub, sweeping high, tray ceilings with ceiling fans, an outdoor shower and immaculately handcrafted woodwork by the owner. Outside are mature fruit trees, beautiful perennial gardens, native stone pathways and a gravity-irrigated vegetable garden. A two-car, two-story heated garage is ready for an accessory apartment or, if you’d like, a guest house can be built in the lower field. It could also be a perfect horse property.
