Welcome to Oak Ridge Farm, this is quintessential Connecticut. This Country cape home is constructed from a reclaimed circa 1783 gunstock post and beam frame that was fashioned into a 2007 4 bd, 2 1/2 bth home. The frame was salvaged in Connecticut and raised on this site. This home includes all the modern conveniences you would expect yet has all the charm and warmth of an antique. Wide board floors and beams, the kitchen features custom hand built cabinets, oak high gloss countertops with an antique farm sink. A 1st floor master bedroom with ensuite bath which features a clawfoot tub and vintage "peg leg" sinks. The lower level has two finished room that currently function as an office and workshop, but these very flexible spaces would make a fabulous in law suite. This gentleman's farm has a 50x50 fenced in garden with potting shed which adjoins a pasture area just waiting for your ideas. You'll find a large variety of trees including hickory, chestnut oak, birch, sassafras, and evergreens to name a few. Mountain laurels line old wood roads that make lovely walking paths. With 57 acres in open space (commitment is fulfilled) the taxes are low. Bordered by the Hatch Lot and the Dean Easement, one could ride horses directly from Sheepskin Hollow into the Hatch Lot. This property has covenants and deed restrictions that insure quiet enjoyment yet allows for subdivision of one additional lot.. Also listed on MLS#170141445 for more details on the land.
