    Description

    LOVE OF THE LAND. Twenty-five gorgeous acres of working farmland, fenced with a cow barn and hay loft, small milking parlor, two large storage sheds and an old-fashioned workman's garage. Multiple gates strategically placed allow for easy locating of livestock and access to the fields during summer haying and winter sledding seasons. The property has been in the hands of the same owners for 65 years. Started in 1956 when the property was primarily woodlands, these then young homeowner's began the process of transforming the land to raise at first horses and then later a small herd of cows and steer. The 2,054 sq. ft. home offers 5 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, double-window dining room and a beautiful spacious living room the width of the house with hardwood floors and a wood-burning fireplace. Oversized picture windows on each end of the room deliver magical views of life in the country-from misty sunrises to Currier and Ives snow scenes. Flocks of wild turkeys, gaggles of geese, herds of deer casually mix with livestock and provide hours of entertainment as they roam the property with abandon-hunters have not been allowed here. Two ponds, which have been dredged and piped for drainage, provide not only drinking water for all the animals but have hosted many an ice-skating party or hockey game when the weather was is right.The property is being sold "As Is" but is very comfortable as you live and design your future at 581 Westminster Road.
