This Greek Revival Farmhouse was previously owned by a prominent local judge who purchased the home when he moved to Maine in the 40’s with his wife and spent the next 50 years turning it into the Gentleman’s Farm that he had always wanted. Surrounded by granite stonewalls and towering oak trees along the Back Meadow Road this hilltop farm has the craftsmanship and detail of an earlier age combined with features that are sought after in this age.
From the moment you walk in to the kitchen and sit at the table you will feel at home by the brick hearth woodstove.
Step in to the dining room and notice the refinished natural wide pine floors matched along with the classic yet elegant trim details from the floor to the chair rail.
There is an office/library off the dining room with built in bookshelves that looks out over the west facing back yard. Next to the office is the music room which is a pleasant place to practice and contemplate while enjoying the sunny afternoon light.
The formal living room is a wonderful more formal room to sit by the fire with your company. It also opens into the glassed in sunroom that is warm enough to use almost all year long.
There are two barns that have had recent work done to bring them up to date and keep them useful. One barn has room for a car and a large workshop as well as dry storage for firewood. The second barn has storage on three levels, two horse stalls and a propane heated artist’s studio with true northern facing light.
The fields and barns are surrounded by fieldstone walls. The upper yard is very flat with flowers, vegetable gardens, berry patches and fruit trees. The pasture gently slopes away from the house and down to an old school's foundation. The land is well suited for farming, horses or raising livestock. There is a screened gazebo to sit in and peacefully enjoy birdsongs in the mornings and afternoon or the peepers and fireflies in the evening.
Along with the amenities of an earlier age there are more modern conveniences like a hot tub on the deck and a wind mill for generating electricity to lower your power bills considerably. There is an installed dog fence covering over an acre which should provide your canine friends with plenty of room to roam without wandering off.
So if you are looking for a return to a simpler age without having to live far away from your friends and town please make an appointment to see this home.
