What: An authentic American country house, with the option to be a farm. The original stone house has a nicely integrated addition, with central air. Otherwise, it has not been greatly modernized. There are original oak beams in the ceiling, a cooking fireplace in the living room, and seven fireplaces in total. The best room is the downstairs ‘tap room’ with a large stone fireplace and a walkout onto the porch overlooking the pool. The outbuildings (sold as is) are charming and could be a chicken coop, artist studio, a little guest house… The owner believes the house was actually built pre-Civil War, possibly 1840.


Where: Way up Falls Road, at the intersection with Bunker Hill Road. Take 83N to Exit 31, Middletown Road. Take a left onto Middletown Road and in .3 miles, a left onto Falls Road.
