This historic 1850’s village house in the center of Mill River sits on a sunny half acre, just across the road from the Konkapot River. Enjoy village life; steps from the library, general store, town hall, and auto shop, and the village elementary school…or, retreat into your own woods and enjoy the perennial gardens and stonework on the property. In addition to its 19th-century charm, the house has essentially been rebuilt by the current owners. New HardiePlank siding and insulation, furnace, hot water heater, renovated bathroom, electrical work and panel, Anderson windows and doors, complete roof and framing, chimney liner, as well as foundation and drainage work have all been added, replaced, and updated. Features inside include gleaming wide plank original floors, a 1st-floor bathroom, kitchen with pantry, and a propane stove for heat and ambiance. It is hard to find such a lovely combination of preserved detail and renovation, in a village setting with privacy and space. Recreational land for walking and exploring miles of trails accessible from the house on foot, includes Umpachene Falls, The Goodnow Preserve, and Questing. Organic farm stands and world-class restaurants are within minutes. The sweet opportunity here.
