Farm ID 3649

  1. Farm ID 3649
Property Description:

The farm has been in existence since 1690 and the seller would like to see it remain land that is for farming purposes.

This iconic residence, built c1690, may be most appreciated by a person who built a stone wall, or cleared some land by hand, or cut a mortise and tenon, and can recognize the accomplishments of the hardy folks this home has sheltered. Rarely can I write about a property in Porter that can be described as ''flat,'' and ''pasture,'' but this is one! The current owner kept horses here over the years and there is some infrastructure for that, and room for much more. The home is being sold with 5.3 acres and all of it is cleared, and Spring-time lush, with a number of mature apple trees and perennials. The property to be conveyed is largely, but not entirely, bounded by stone walls. On the first floor, there is a combined kitchen and dining space with wood stove that will be welcoming on the chilly days, a beautiful living room with exposed, hand-hewn beams and fireplace, and a bedroom w/fireplace with an attached bath. There are two bedrooms and a smaller room upstairs that could be an office or nursery and a small half bath. The owner is an artist and her studio space, along with an ample woodshed, are off the back of the house, and ready for your projects too. The smaller barn has a paddock and room for hay storage, and a garage door to store tools or toys. The stoutly built barn could also be used for animals, vehicle storage, or a myriad of other things. Public access to Colcord and Bickford Pond is close by for fishing and swimming; Cornish, ME and Freedom NH are both 15 minutes away for provisions. This is a rare and special property, please consider a visit.
