Unique and wonderful opportunity to purchase a terrific home and barn on over 17 level and pastoral acres. Enjoy country living very close to the center of beautiful Bethlehem, an easy escape from NYC and also so close to the nearby country towns of Litchfield, Washington and Bantam. The possibilities are endless for this great property. A long driveway leads to the house passing a pretty pond, and buried utilities allow for beautiful sight lines while minimizing the possibility of power outages. Huge Anderson windows and doors throughout with lovely views across the meadows. Enjoy indoor/outdoor living with lots of decking wrapping much of the house. Currently situated as a 2 Bedroom 2.5 Bath home, there is a very large unfinished area on the main level which could be beautifully finished into a magnificent master suite, 3rd bedroom…the septic is sized for 3 Bedrooms already. Built in 2000 from what was a barn and maintained meticulously, this home is extremely special and ready for its new owner. Please note that current taxes are lower due to the sellers participation in 490 Agricultural program for reduction in land tax.
