Located on a private 5.6-acre lot, this 18th Century-style Saltbox is a blend of pleasant country living and 21st Century modern technology providing both privacy and independence. Twenty-four solar panels on the roof provide electric power to the house and offset electric bills. A back-up Sonnen home storage battery will seamlessly kick in to provide electric power during an outage. An owner's suite with fireplace is on the first floor; two more bedrooms and full bath are upstairs. The kitchen has a sunny breakfast nook with French doors opening out to a fabulous three-season porch that brings you close to nature. Wide pine flooring and a huge Rumford fireplace flanked by built-ins are the living room's notable features. A semi-finished basement and attached two-car garage complete the package. The piece de resistance is a 2,088-square-foot barn that currently serves as an auto hobby shop on the first floor. There is a drive-in ramp to the second floor, where it is possible to store cars. The third floor is for storage of smaller items; a cupola above that provides air circulation. A natural spring-fed stream, with a waterfall borders the beautifully landscaped property. There are established perennial gardens, raised vegetable beds and numerous blueberry bushes. With all this sustainable living, you will never have to leave home!
