At the end of a quiet country road is a two bedroom c1830s brick cape on 251 acres. The property has been called Green Acres since the mid-1800s. The land was farmed for over a hundred years until it was taken over by the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) in the 1930s as a forestry camp. The remaining buildings from this period are the warden’s house, bull barn, gambrel barn and bunkhouse, many of which have been repurposed over time. Later, it was a retreat for a family who enjoyed summering on the property before there was electricity and modern plumbing. For the last 34 years, it’s been stewarded by the current owners who renovated the farmhouse and loved to invite friends and family to share in their slice of heaven. In 1990, a 3 bedroom guest cottage was added to house an overflow of enthusiastic friends and a dog kennel for furry companions as well. They played tennis, kept horses, and loved to ride out on a network of trails. Part of the day was spent swimming and paddling in the clear waters of a 3-4 acre pond, fed by cold mountain springs. The landscape includes perennial gardens and 100 apple trees. There are endless sightings of wildlife including turkeys, beavers, bears, moose, coyotes, deer, and great blue herons. The trails are suitable for biking, cross-country skiing, and hiking. There is a conservation easement, excluding 52 acres.
