We are a carpenter/gardener couple who have been restoring our 1860’s Greek Revival farmhouse for the last 30+ years. One of our goals has been to live self sufficiently and conscientiously, and we believe our home and gardens uniquely reflect this.
The house includes three bedrooms, a large beautiful kitchen, dining room, living room, library/office, studio, pantry, mudroom, two full bathrooms and an airy screened and glassed in sunporch. Connected to the house by a long porch, is a 25’x36′ two story shop/studio and a woodshed and storage area.
Behind the house are established organic vegetable, and perennial flower gardens, fruit trees, and blueberry and raspberry bushes. A Nearing style 10’x 20′ stone, glass and wood greenhouse extends the gardening season at both ends, and provides a lovely refuge on sunny, cold winter days.
Hard as it is for us to leave this, our children are grown and we no longer need this much space and the large gardens. We hope a younger family looking for a similar lifestyle will get as much joy from it as we have.
