Seasonless conifers, in a variety of sizes, shapes and hues, outline the boundaries of this bucolic 3.5 acre property, and follow the curved drive to the stone and stucco house with tranquil pond. In fall and winter the trees stand fast through ice and snow, holding a promise of warmer times to come. The earliest days of spring bring the first bright bursts of forsythia and then the pines become a verdant backdrop as bed after bed of brilliant blooms erupt across the landscape. In the midst of such natural, year-round splendor sits the 19th-century farmhouse. A paver patio with radiant heat leads to a welcoming covered double door entry. Inside, the home is graced with wood floors, beamed ceilings and deep-silled windows. The central foyer offers closet space and a first-floor powder room, and opens into a charming living room where the fireplace, with propane insert and Mercer tile accents, is flanked by built-in bookshelves. Wood posts separate the adjoining stone-walled dining room. The warmth of the original farmhouse kitchen is enhanced by updates which provide the conveniences of a workspace island, modern appliances, and an accommodating eat-in area. A first-floor laundry is a convenient touch, while a rustic family room is finished entirely in rough-hewn barn wood for a cozy, country atmosphere. On the second floor, three bedrooms include a master suite with bath and walk-in closet. A walk-up attic provides lots of extra space for storage or play. A detached 2-car garage includes a second-floor studio with full bath. Just up the hill, the dairy barn was given new siding and a galvanized metal roof in 2008. Once used to house cows, the main room still boasts the original tie stalls and troughs, while the bank level offers a wide open space amenable to gatherings of various sizes. Despite the interior amenities, you'll want to spend most of the time outdoors enjoying the nearly ~ acre, ecologically maintained pond, and the glorious surroundings. Ever natural. Ever beautiful. Evergreen.
