Description

A prized jewel in a bucolic country setting, Little Brook Farm is something spectacular, loving maintained by the same family for nearly a century. This historic home, whose structure dates back to the 18th Century, is nestled amid 27 rolling acres, enjoying serene openness & diverse nature-scapes that are beyond compare. With respect for its rich history & wonderful natural spaces, the residence is completely surrounded by conserved properties, so the view sheds will never change. Inhabited by 200+ species of birds & brimming with gorgeous greenery, the lush pastoral site boasts many more unique environmental characteristics than any other around it. Occupying the magnificent farm-like grounds with wooded & landscaped areas as well as stretching fields is a gorgeous stone main home, private guest cottage and stone & wood barn which serves as the garage. A tranquil stream winds peacefully through the trees, a vegetable garden has space to grow many varieties if you like to get your hands dirty, and a large natural pond provides the perfect place to sit & gaze for hours. Perched on a lovely hill, the enchanting main home exudes timeless elegance. Partial wood fencing lines the sloping front lawn leading down the long, graceful drive to the charming stone spring house for water to the house, vegetable garden and cottage. An open western porch allows you to appreciate the beauty in bliss, enjoy early evening gatherings & watch the thunderstorms roll in. Gracing the interior are historical features you would never find in a modern home such as hand-reeded mantles; hand-carved window rosettes; a telephone nook between the living room & hall to the guestroom area; a dining room fireplace from the early 1700s; five (5) fireplaces in the sections of the house dating before the mid-1920s which heated those rooms in their day. A gracious living room with stunning hardwood floors & a fireplace accommodates entertaining, with double sets of doors to the western porch. The rustic dining room with wood beam ceilings & a significant fireplace makes hosting extra special. A huge family room with a stone fireplace spills out through glass doors to the scenic property & is open to the chef's kitchen with generous wood cabinetry, 2 islands & stainless steel appliances. Sun-filled bedrooms with tasteful moldings & a parlor with an intricately-mantled fireplace enhance the unique living afforded by this extraordinary home.
