Upgrades and Renovations

A full list of upgrades can be obtained from the listing's real estate agent, but a few of the highlights include: a new roof (2009); house completely rewired (2009); new programmable thermostats (2009), replaced heating elements, new hot water heater and water softener (all 2010); Low-flush toilets installed (2009); laundry sink installed in basement and additional outdoor faucet added (both faucets have interior washers so do not need seasonal draining); all cast iron waste piping replaced with new PVC piping (2009); custom door installed on dining room fireplace and Jotul insert installed in living room fireplace which can heat entire downstairs.

Outside the House

The just under 3 acre property sports a barn which pre-dates the Civil War (and whose upper level is currently rented by a local farmer who hays the back field) and which has had automatic garage doors and a gravel driveway installed. An Invisible Fence goes from the barn and wraps around the house around the entire perimeter to keep pets safe while giving plenty of playspace. The freestanding stone wall has been professionally rebuilt, with the same stonemason rebuilding the wall in front of the house as well as the front steps.
