Own your own sprawling orchard and live in a mansard-roofed farmhouse that has been in the same family for nearly 200 years. The land is just exquisite, featuring row upon row of gorgeous trees on both sides of the road, four ponds, distant mountain and valley views from various locations, a huge century-old barn, lots of road frontage and a stream. Owners have been approached by several solar companies about leasing 10 of the acres. Currently the owners have someone harvesting 9 varieties of apples, 3 varieties of pear and nectarines as well. The new owner can choose to harvest or have someone else do it but in any case there is an agricultural exemption of taxes for the nearly 50 acres. nearly any kind of agricultural business could flourish here. The farmstead house will need updating but still retains some original features and at nearly 3,000 square feet has plenty space and enormous potential. Sited as it is on a country road, the property easily lends itself to subdivision. (There is an additional 2+acre building plot with water, septic and electric with a gorgeous pond available not included in the current offering price, separate from the offered acreage and not impinging on it at all. The last 3 photos in the listing are of that additional plot. This plot cannot be sold before the main house and acreage.) One saves approximately $6,500 yearly with an agricultural exemption, per the assesor's office.) Bring your animals if you want. And your dreams.
