This inviting home on almost 11 acres is built from reclaimed barn framing, and finished off with a mix of rustic chic masonry walls, pine wallboards and ceiling, and sturdy oak hardwood floors. The property has been lovingly maintained for 30 years as a weekend escape, boasting an expansive deck with great views looking out over the Handsome Brook valley toward the town of Franklin, thoughtful landscaping notes, a large meadow with apple trees and a garden area, and even two outdoor brick ovens. Enter the house from the covered porch and into the generous mudroom area with stone flooring and plenty of room to shed your gear. The main living space combines an eating area and family/living room, and is airy and bright from the cathedral ceiling and massive custom windows. The woodstove will heat the entire house on chilly evenings. The exposed beams continue into two bedrooms and a full bathroom. The kitchen has space for an informal eating area, and is supplemented with a central island. Upstairs there are two unfinished rooms which could be small bedrooms, and a central loft area - possibly another bedroom, or even a cozy reading nook or home office space. The basement is accessed from inside, or from the roll-up garage door, and has space for a small workshop, utilities, and room to park the lawn equipment (Seller would like to include all furnishing and outdoor equipment). The land itself is steadily sloping down from the road, has a huge meadow for gatherings and lawn games, and then continues into more woods with quad trails, treestands, and even a small pond in the back corner. This property is packed with appealing features, and is located on a town maintained road just a few minutes to Franklin, the East Sidney Lake Recreation area, and 20 minutes to Oneonta for supplies.
