One family, multiple generations, this old farm house is sharp as a tack and charming to boot.
Located down a long town maintained dirt road on the Alexander – Cooper town line with 170 acres, you will LOVE the sprawling open fields, views of forest below and Meddybemps Lake in the distance.
Built in the early 1900’s, this home has been well loved and it shows. Over the last 100 years, the property has been used for farming, hunting and summering. A true gem in the land of dense forest, these open fields make it easy to add livestock and large gardens! Provide for your family or the farmers market, many resources nearby to help you along the way!
A new barn built in 2011 serves well for equipment or alter for animals. Two original barns remain for additional tools, wood or hay.
When entering though the side porch you’ll see a large woodshed to your right for convenience and a kitchen door straight ahead, a place to hang your coat and the back staircase traditional of most New England entries. Step back to a simpler time in the kitchen where you can almost picture a full house, large meals, canning the harvest and late nights prepping for the following work day. Currently a gas range and wood heat stove are the modern replacement of what likely would have been a wood fired cook stove, still making it the warmest gathering place in the home. A large farmhouse table seats 7+ with some rocking chairs for good conversation, perhaps while snapping some green beans for dinner. A large pantry makes room for all of your summer’s bounty and everything you need to prepare it.
When it comes time to retire for the day, nothing beats this living room with both early and late sun…and warmth from the brick hearth in the winter when there is little sun.
A first floor bedroom and 3/4 bath are great for when the home is less than full, making it easy to maintain the first floor during the winter months or just for ease of access.
Heading up over the handsome staircase the second floor features 4 average bedrooms and a “master bedroom” on the end with full bath and back stair case to the kitchen.
New windows in the master with some of the best views in the house!
Fulfill your hearts desire to go back in time or update with top of the line amenities and just enjoy the raw beauty of this modern day rarity. Major components such as well, septic and roof were just added in the last few years and the furnace of the 80’s is in great condition with little use. From here on out it is up to you to bring new life to this well loved old home!
