Welcome to this former farm consisting of a 3,296 square foot house, ten acres of flat land, and a rich history. Local lore names the house as one of the stops on the famous Underground Railroad; the secret room behind a fireplace tells the story of slaves hiding until dark. When the sun set, it was safe to travel, to Canada and to freedom. The 5 bedroom, two bath house built in 1805, is complete with four working fireplaces, hardwood floors and the original chestnut beams. A two-car garage was attached later, in the same style as the house. The farmhouse boasts amazing views of lush woods and wide sweeping fields. Surrounded on three sides by the Cheshire Land Trust, you can rest assured that these views will remain unspoiled. One of Cheshire’s oldest houses, this property is full of classic New England character and is waiting for the next generation to love and enjoy. The house is being sold as is, with a $10,000 investor incentive, new for 2019, valid until 3/15/19!! This is a wonderful opportunity to create your ideal farm! Convenient to I-91 and I-84, Cheshire is only 2 hours drive from New York but feels like a world away.
