Farmed organically since the 1970’s, the 2,580-square-foot Moses Gage House (circa 1788) is rich with history and beauty. Rolling fields sprawl across this 13-acre lot beyond the weathered, timber framed barn. Inside the impressive structure you can almost hear the echoes of the past resonating off the walls. A nearby chicken coop sits in the backyard, waiting for its next brood. The farmhouse itself, facing South on the corner of Gage Hill and Garney Roads, is nestled amongst ancient maple trees providing ample shade in the Summer and glorious golden color in Autumn. Take note of the extra-large two-car garage/woodshed with attic storage before stepping through the side entryway. The custom-rehabbed home, full of natural light, will surely captivate your attention, displaying quality craftsmanship everywhere. Notes of Scandinavian heritage and character shine through. Glowing, naturally-finished woodwork throughout complements the large Great Room, its open space reaching up to a cathedral ceiling with expandable loft and custom made interior shutters. Venture into the first floor master bedroom to find original raised panel sliding shutters, wainscoting, and a mantle wall behind a beehive brick hearth. The structure rests on a sturdy granite foundation, with a pea stone basement floor and French drain underfoot. An automatic propane generator on a cement pad, located behind the house, is ready when needed. A deep artesian well amply supplies water, and a dug well is available for the gardens. About a half mile from Route 16, this property has none of the traffic noise but every advantage of a commuter’s dream with added potential of a home business. The buyer has the option to purchase an adjacent 15-acre lot along Gage Hill Road. Schedule your personal tour today!
