It’s not every day that we come across an 1800-built farmhouse set against a New England-worthy backdrop—on 53 acres, to boot—but that’s exactly what this Newtown home is.
The 3,700-square-foot house just came on the market for $1,195,000, and it couldn’t look more like a country home. It opens with a great room that spans two stories, with wood walls, wood vaulted ceilings, and hardwood floors. One wall is entirely stone with a large fireplace.
There’s another living room off to the side, as well as the original, 1800’s dining room. An adjacent sun room with stone floors and wall-to-wall windows lets in plenty of light.
The house has four bedrooms and 2.5 baths which are spread between the first and second floors, including one that has its own private deck.
The farmhouse also includes a covered porch that gazes out over the massive land. The home boasts 53 acres of space, including ponds, a barn/garage, and plenty of space from the road.
