This is one of the most charming and elegant country farmhouse renovations you'll ever see. Sitting on 25 quite acres this home has been tastefully renovated with a warm, inviting style. Home to world-renowned illustrator Charles Vess and his wife, this is not your typical farmhouse. The moment you enter the home, you can feel there has been a lot of creativity poured into the space. The kitchen redesign was completed by local master craftsman Joel Harte. It features beautiful, rich, cherry wood cabinets, Italian tile backsplash, soft-close drawers, a built-in hutch and a charming tea and coffee sitting area. The top cabinets have translucent glass panels, and the lower cabinets sport quartz countertops. A stone archway separates the dining and kitchen areas and creates definition. Most of the stonework and main staircase woodwork has authentic arts and crafts tiles. The kitchen has a special order AGA dual gas-and-electric range and an enameled Heartland retro-style fridge. All cabinets were built around the fridge, oven and the original 1928 farmhouse sink! Heartwood pine floors run throughout. Off the dining room is a nice-sized living room with a fireplace. The 2nd bedroom is off the living area. The Master suite upstairs has a walk-in closet, dressing area and a full bath. The bath has a soaking tub adorned with an original Vess mermaid painting. Outside are several buildings and mature trees. The Root Cellar has a studio above that could be transformed into a cute guest house. There is a small orchard in the back behind the original chicken house. It has great fire pit area, landscaped pathways, and a custom stone wall at the entrance of the circular drive. The home is on a private spring with plenty of water. There is also county water available w/a paid tap fee. With 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths, this lovely farm home has all the charm you are looking for, ample acreage and simple living. Its ready for a mini farm, or just to enjoy solitude.
