This lovely 1825 colonial has many of its original features in place – wide plank floors, beamed ceiling and original hardware. Combine this with newer windows, foam insulation in the basement and a well insulated attic and you have the best of both worlds. Also, the house is a legal two family offering a multitude of options – incorporate it into the main house to have a first floor bedroom suite, rent it year ’round or use it as an AirBnB (current owner did so quite successfully.) The adjacent barn/garage is currently being used as a woodworking studio but it can easily be converted to its original use. There is a carport, as well. The yard is partially fenced for dogs and the meadow view is beautiful. Tons of history here – in the late 1800’s this was the post office for Housatonic
