This 1800s farmhouse will stun you with its quaint character, bucolic setting and the many modern touches the owners have lovingly added to it. Set on over one acre of land near the heart of historic Stillwater, this turnkey piece of history feels “away from it all” when you want it to, but is minutes from all the shopping, dining and entertainment one could ask for when you don’t. Step inside past the front mudroom and through the Dutch doors into the eat-in kitchen with breakfast bar. The stainless-steel appliances include dishwasher, side-by-side door refrigerator with water hook-up, and oven /range featuring built-in air fryer capability. Off the side of the large living room, is the sunny, freshly remodeled 3-season room that is used year-round as a perfect space for holiday dinners and parties and comes with the custom-built dining room table, chairs and bench you’ll find inside. Behind the living room is ample storage for coats and housing for the mechanicals which include a newer Rheem brand water heater and plumbing (2021 septic is new). Follow the oversized workbench to the inactive coal chute, which is used for additional storage, but could accommodate a host of other possibilities including gardening or winemaking.
Up the stairs is the train three-bedroom suite with recently installed custom closet and carpet that has beautiful pumpkin pine wood flooring beneath that would really be something with a little restoration. The second floor’s 3-season room is comfortably used year-round as an arcade & media room and leads out to a beautiful patio and firepit area that will include the table and chair set with sale. Also found on the property is the garage located next to ample parking space for four vehicles and a separate workshop. Both outbuildings have electricity and offer the ideal hobby or recreational space away from the house itself. The home comes with a new gas generator and proper power transfer switch.
While you will find no shortage of hiking trails, hunting and fishing in the surrounding areas, you will be just a stone’s throw from small-town pleasures such as the general store, auto repair shop, and local dining at Hyde-Away Tap and Grill. Beyond Stillwater, you are just a 10-minute drive from Newton proper where you’ll find just about any larger store you can think of including ShopRite, Lowes, Walmart and much more.
