Classic American Litchfield county colonial dating back to the late 1700s in the foothills of the Berkshires. The current owners descend from Benjamin Franklin, the abolitionist Lucretia Coffin Mott and the founder of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The farmhouse is a classic colonial dating back to the late 1700s. The approx. 3,000 sq ft house has 6 bedrooms, 4 1/2 bathrooms, 4 original fireplaces and a beehive oven. There are some of the original wide plank floors and there is a playroom with a stone wall fireplace and plenty of original features throughout the house. There is a natural spring-fed swimming pool, a tennis court (in need of resurfacing) and 21 acres of cleared land with the original stone walls. There is an abundance of wildlife (including deer, wild turkeys, quails and many more), wild fruits and native plants. Very peaceful, quiet setting, all major amenities (shops, hospital, transportation) are just a 15 minutes drive away.
