Home & Workshop (or Studio).

Many people are familiar with this house, but few know the interesting and unusual possibilities available with this home’s truly unique configuration. Locally known as the “Red House with the Big Window”, this home is quite unique.

Not only is it an Antique home, but it has two barns, over 1000 sf of flexible-use space (that could be a Workshop or a Studio for ballet, music or art), and a separate in-law or nanny suite. There is an attached and a detached barn (with 3 car garage). Some people might want to renovate the main kitchen and bathrooms, but the structures and mechanical systems are in good shape (including windows, siding and roof). The Septic is newer (from 2011), for 5 Bedrooms. While the original 18th Century farmhouse (c. 1756) has been extensively expanded and modernized, with multiple additions, over the centuries, the central chimney with three fireplaces (one with a side beehive oven) proudly remains. Other period millwork and character-work has been lovingly restored, including original mantels, corner posts, numerous cupboards, the stairway, beadboard and wide-plank floors. This is an interesting Home & Studio (or Workshop) set up.
