The large foyer, featuring a 3 story open peg staircase, leads into the formal living and dining rooms, featuring hundreds of years of Quaker craftsmanship and details that have been meticulously maintained. Extensive original built ins, light fixtures, and original pine flooring under 9′ ceilings tells a story of years past while still feeling just like home. Across the foyer, entering the 1973 addition to the home, you will find the kitchen, breakfast room with bay window, powder room, and large yet cozy family room with brick accent wall/fireplace and beamed ceiling. Spiraling up the impressive staircase, 2 very spacious bedrooms each have a decorative fireplace and amazing views out of the tall, blown glass windows.

The 3 remaining bedrooms are large with hardwood floors, large closets and lots of natural light. The grounds are beautiful, from the expansive backyard which includes a 3 acre back field, to the views across the street of the 4 acre field (currently in crop with a local farmer) and up the valley. The large back deck is perfect for entertaining on summer nights, and horses are allowed on the property! This sale consists of 3 parcels totaling 9.3 acres. Hereford School Zone, and very convenient commuter location. A truly beautiful and private setting – this home is not to be missed and this wonderful combination of history, property, pastoral setting, space, and all close to modern amenities does not come for sale often!
