    Property Details

    This charming and spacious log home circa 1750 was renovated, taking two years that added over and around the existing log home, approximately 13 years ago. We are told the log home was built for relatives of the renowned George Boone family. For the front of the home a naturally weathered wood exterior was used to accentuate the exposed portion of the log home. This home features random width hardwood floors. The huge Kitchen features vaulted ceilings and skylights and the handcrafted reproduction cabinetry was installed to preserve the natural feel of the historic log home. Sit and relax and gaze out of the corner windows and enjoy a lovely view across your pond. Plenty of Cabinets and Soapstone countertops. There is also a deep farm sink and a pot filler at the kitchen stove. The Living room/Family Room is enormous with a wood burning fireplace. This room is large enough to be sectioned into a dining room and living room. Next to the Kitchen there is another huge room which the sellers are using as a formal dining room but could be used as a first floor master. Down the hall is a full bath and Laundry. Exit the dining room to the back of the home and you will find a large covered porch. A great spot to sit and enjoy a lovely summers eve. Upstairs you will find a large bedroom which has a small door that overlooks the kitchen. Up a few more steps and you will find the current owners Master Bedroom and charming full bath. Here you will also find a small gas stove. Also another small room currently being used as a walk-in closet. There is an oversized 2 car garage and storage area. Central Air and new furnace. You will also find a nice sized Bank Barn with plenty of storage space and a second level. There is also a Spring House with an existing spring. If you have always been looking for that farmette you dreamed of, here it is! There is plenty of space to enjoy for picnics, games and just great summer or winter fun. You will get that great country feel but just be minutes from major routes for shopping, entertainment, restaurants and more.
