CLASSIC 1880 DELAWARE COUNTY FAMILY DAIRY FARM ON 128 ACRES: This extraordinary property extends across both sides of a quiet country road between Delhi and Hamden, with more than 3600 feet of road frontage. The northeastern side is mostly hay fields, and gently rolling pasture with a stream meandering through it and a large pond just below the house and barn area. The other side of the road consists of the more elevated acreage, with a mostly hardwood forest punctuated by a couple of high meadows. This woodlot has not been timbered for more than 10 years.Meanwhile the side gabled farmhouse sits overlooking the bucolic landscape, taking in the complete panorama of fields, meadows, stream and pond, while the dairy barn, carriage barn and sheds are located conveniently nearby.You can't help but feel the good vibes as you enter this venerable farmhouse. The downstairs features open spaces with a large country kitchen with extensive original cabinetry as well as some updated kitchen cabinets and counter, and a dining area that has hosted many large family dinners and gatherings. The large living room opens into a good sized family room that overlooks the fields and the pond. And there is a full bathroom downstairs that also contains the laundry.An enclosed staircase leads to 4 generous bedrooms upstairs and another full bathroom with a tub/shower. All the bedrooms have closets. Another staircase leads to an open soaring attic space, with the potential for more living space if you so desire.Some details--there are mostly refinished original knotty pine floors throughout (except the kitchen), all new thermopane windows, 9 ft ceilings, original interior doors and hardware, and many upgrades done in 2011 (See Agent Remarks). While we thoroughly expect the new owner to further update the exterior and interior to their own taste, the bones of the house are simple and classic and are a good starting point.The dairy barn has been well preserved with a metal roof, and has been emptied of everything except for some hay. There is also a charming 2-story carriage barn that is in equally good condition. And there are a couple more useful equipment sheds.A lot of good times have been shared in this homestead but it is clear that the premises are now a blank canvas waiting for the next owners to enjoy and make their own--my sellers only wish that going forward the new owners will find the joy and happiness that they experienced growing up in this lovely place.
