Here is a wonderful example of a typical New England connected farm complex. Built in 1900, the structure consists of the “big house” or main living area. Connected to the rear of the big house is the “little house” which contains the kitchen area. Behind that is the wagon house/barn. You’ll love the location of this beauty. It’s in a charming village on a narrow lane of older homes. The exterior of this gem has retained most of its original features. I find it reminiscent of “Murder She Wrote’s” Blair House. (Again, I date myself.) Note the double front door and detailed overhang. The two-story bay window and the side porch are just amazing! If you look closely you can see the beautiful dentil work around the bay and in the eaves. Inside are 12 rooms with a beautiful staircase that leads to the third floor.  I don’t know why, because I’d need a ladder to reach them, but I have always been partial to high cupboards, like the ones in this kitchen. Hardwood floors, wide baseboard molding and an inviting yard add to the home’s appeal.
