Pine Valley Farm is an antique cape Farmhouse with a new Post & Beam addition set on twelve acres (+/-) of fields, gardens, woods and a picturesque pond. Fanciers of old homes will appreciate this homestead, brimming with character, built-ins, details and charm in every room.
The first floor features wide-board pumpkin pine floors throughout, aged to a warm amber color. Enter the home through the Post & Beam addition which is currently unfinished, but can be finished in a multiple of ways… Would you like a home studio or gallery or antique shop? Or arrange an impressive entry and mudroom, expand the kitchen, create a master suite or turn it into a garage. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
The kitchen is warm and welcoming with a brick chimney that hosts a cooktop, double ovens, Jenn-Air grill and fireplace. Wood floors, paneling and beams combined with the brick, wood cabinets and afternoon sunshine complete the room.
A living room with a wall of glass doors and windows with views over the deck, gardens and a pond is just beyond. A woodstove set into the brick fireplace with wood mantel is the winter focus of the room while the windows to the back yard take over the rest of the year. Through a wide opening is the dining room to the left and a parlor to the right. Beyond is an elegant hallway with arched opening and staircase to the second floor. But wait! Off the hallway to the back of the home is a full bath with granite counters and beadboard, an office/den and first floor bedroom… Many old capes have small, dark rooms… but this home has an amazing amount of bright light, large open rooms with the flexibility to use them however best suits your lifestyle.
Upstairs the incredibly wide pumpkin pine floors continue throughout. The upstairs Master Bedroom has many built in details and has been painted with whimsical colors. There are two more bedrooms or a sun-drenched sitting room, a full bath and a laundry with half bath.
A gorgeous barn with new metal roof, cupola and weathervane are just steps away from the house. Use it for animals or as a garage… with many possibilities, it can be whatever you’d like it to be!
