Sweet early and sturdy chestnut post and beam Colonial on almost a half-acre across from wonderful Haystack Mountain State Park to the west and with views over protected lands to the east. 1,430 square feet, 1-2 bedrooms, one and a half baths. Brand new 200 Amp electrical service, very new asphalt shingle roof, quite new furnace and oil tank, walk up attic, full basement with old-fashioned root cellar, lovely early barn with garage bay, level open back yard with a patio and nice vegetable garden bed. There is some interior cosmetic which can be done to uncover the old wood floors and peel back a layer or two on some of the walls and ceilings that have been added over the years. Everything about this property is well tended and very neat and tidy.
