Farmhouse on the Glen in low-tax Grahamsville is a hidden gem, discreetly set at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac with only one other house on the road. Comprising the original Farmhouse (which has been carefully maintained), a rentable Guest Cottage, 3-car garage with workshop, an artist’s studio, music pavilion and productive veggie garden, this property is as full of charm and character as the artist whose vision and creativity inspired it.
As is the case with many houses, the inclination is to approach the Farmhouse from the rear, and enter via the back door through the mud room/vestibule where a half bathroom and laundry area are conveniently located. Beyond this space you will find yourself in the bright, sunny eat-in kitchen where open shelves, ample closet space and a cozy dining corner with expansive windows welcome you into the home.
Through the kitchen, you are drawn into the pine-paneled living room offering a glimpse of the sunny covered rocking-chair porch through the front door. Pass through the living room into a gracious parlor space or music den, where family and friends would gather to listen and play. Both rooms have built-in bookshelves.
From the living room, a flight of stairs takes you to the second floor which has 3 decent sized light-filled bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Old world charm can be found in the details in bedrooms and bathroom. Attic storage space is accessed via pull-down steps in the walk-in closet in one of the bedrooms.
At the far end of the property, beyond the Zen garden and across the lawn is the rentable Guest Cottage and artist studio. The Guest Cottage has 2 floors, with bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and dining on one level and a cozy living room with wood burning fireplace downstairs. The Guest Cottage has its’ own septic.
A 3-car garage with attached workshop, a music ‘pavilion’ , rolling lawns, mature trees and a fenced vegetable garden make this property an ideal weekend escape or year-round dwelling with the income-producing Guest Cottage. Chestnut Creek is a few short steps away and the property is within easy reach of Tri-Valley School and Grahamsville, making it a versatile yet charming property that has much to recommend it.
