European-influenced style makes this historic farmhouse on a dead end road just outside the village a true one of a kind. Set in a meadow above the dead end road, it enjoys complete privacy thanks to trees and shrubs. Enter through the generous mudroom, or come in on the long, screened porch where you can enjoy the outdoors even on the hottest days. Inside is a wide galley kitchen and big, light-soaked dining area. The generous living room with wood stove on one wall runs the length of the house, and has a gas stove at the far end. French doors lead to a large, book shelf-lined library/study which opens to a smaller, shaded covered porch overlooking the side yard.

Upstairs is a very large, airy master and a comfortable guest bedroom, plus a modern, bright full bathroom. Inside the master closet is access to a large, unfinished space that could easily accommodate a bathroom expansion or even allow for a second bath upstairs. Every wall has multiple, newer windows to maximize both the light and the sense of being part of nature. Economical electric heat, updated electric and septic and a full height, dry basement. There is a well for drinking, and an additional spring water source for gardening. Outside, a former milk shed is now a rustic artist studio with water and electric attached to an oversized one car garage. A short walk to the Ouleout Creek and less than a mile to shops and dining in Franklin, allowing you to be part of village life while preserving all the quiet and privacy that makes life in the country so appealing.
