This charming antique farmhouse with a distinctive attached red barn has been one of Shirley's treasured gems for almost 2 centuries. On almost 2 pastoral acres, with ever-blooming perennial gardens brimming with daffodils, lilacs, daylilies, and irises, and dotted with ancient apple and pear trees, the original 19th century home was tastefully modified in the 1990s to create an open concept multi-windowed family room from the original ell connecting it to the barn. The result is a welcoming space imbued with light, warmth and possibilities. More recent renovations include a pellet stove & such desirable kitchen enhancements as stainless appliances, granite counters, and a stunning stamped tin backsplash. Upstairs, there is an airy master bedroom with walk-in cedar closet, an exercise/meditation room & 3 more bedrooms. This mini country estate beckons to potential gardeners or keepers of chickens or small grazing animals. It's just a few minutes' walk to the 85-acre FarandNear trails.
