About the Home

Spacious antique, colonial home with lots of history and character! This 1739 home served as the original farmhouse of "Bradleyville" owned by Captain Bradley. Up the lane is a small graveyard with Bradley and Palmer tombstones. The home boasts historical details, including tomahawk and coffin doors with original, beautifully refinished, wide-plank, chestnut floors throughout. The large living room features a fireplace with cast iron wood stove insert, original 12 over 12 glass windowpanes, and wooden beams. The foyer also leads to a well-portioned dining room complete with crystal chandelier. The light and airy kitchen has plenty of space for eating in and building out with extra storage in the butler's pantry. Notice the detail of the painted rug! Upstairs are 3 bedrooms and a full bath with french doors leading to the long and wide porch. One large attic is accessed from upstairs foyer and the second from the upstairs porch. The downstairs porch is great for entertaining or relaxing as you enjoy your private 2 acres bordered by a brook. A small antique building across the yard is perfect for garden tools and wood storage. If you love the antique farmhouse style, this home is waiting for the next owner to make it their own! Roof is approximately 10 years old and was assessed for viability for solar panels; house recently wired with a thermostat in each room and ready to go. Newer water heater.
