Take a step back in time into this historically stunning Antique Brick farm house! Perfectly situated on 11.5 acres, the home has been beautifully upgraded while still keeping the original character of the farm house.
As you enter this restored home, a spacious kitchen and cozy den area with wood stove welcomes. This room features large windows overlooking the back yard as well as a vaulted ceiling with skylights to make the room feel spacious and airy. The kitchen features a center island with a breakfast bar that seats four, double oven, large french door refrigerator, and dishwasher.
Continuing through the home from the den area, the dining room welcomes guests with room enough to seat a medium to large table. Currently the dining area is appointed with a 6-person table. Just off the dining room is a doorway with stairs leading to one of 7 spacious bedrooms. This bedroom is large enough to fit two twin beds as well as a love seat. Additionally, this bedroom has a fan, brick statement wall and three large windows to add more light and extending the airy feel from the den area.
Passing through the doorway in the dining room, a 16 foot by 20 foot living room provides plenty of space to design your perfect furniture layout and potentially highlight the dining room’s original fireplace with bank. Current living room layout includes a couch, two chairs, a coffee table and multiple cabinets. There are also two doorways in the living room leading to additional rooms.
The doorway on the left leads down a hallway to another bedroom currently arranged with a double bed, chair and corner hutch. This bedroom also looks out over the backyard and garden area. Half way down the bedroom access hallway, there is an adjoining hallway entry that leads out to the gardens. This hallway entry also has an expansive full bathroom featuring a walk-in shower with two modern multi-spray showers, custom tiling and double vanity. Preparing for the day will be a breeze in this thoughtfully designed bathroom.
The doorway on the right in the living room leads into the library/ bedroom. This room is truly a book reader’s or collector’s dream with built-in bookshelves that cover almost every wall from floor to ceiling. Enjoy reading your favorite novel in this spacious room that is currently furnished as a bedroom. A desk looking out over the mountains at the front of the house makes this a pleasant work space as well.
Just before entering the library, a stairway leads to four more bedrooms and an additional bathroom. At the top of the stairs, a renovated bathroom features a glass shower with multi-spray shower and a large sit in tub. Two bedrooms are located next to this bathroom with one facing the backyard and the other facing the front yard. The bedroom facing the backyard is sized to fit a double bed, desk and chair. The bedroom at the front of the house is similar in size featuring built in shelving, ceiling fan and mountain views!
Across from the bedroom at the front of the house are two additional rooms, an expansive bonus room (that could be used as a bedroom) and one more bedroom. The bonus room currently has multiple desks, a large cabinet covering the majority of the wall, and a couch. This space has unlimited opportunity for additional layouts to suit the needs of any future home owner. Well situated windows provide stunning field and mountain views throughout the year. Continuing through this room allows access to the sixth bedroom overlooking the back yard and gardens.
The final bedroom of this farm in Essex can be found just off the kitchen den area up a short flight of stairs. This bedroom features a double bed, skylights and a couch. Additionally, this area provides privacy with a doorway between the kitchen area and the bottom of the stairs. It could also be a suite area with a full bathroom on the lower level, perfect quarters for any guests who prefer their own space.
