Located on a small hill within the village, overlooking a stream in the front, and a brook and view behind the house, this 1830 cape, completely refurbished, has 4 bedrooms (1 downstairs bedroom with bath and 2 upstairs bedrooms, plus a sleeping loft overlooking the living room), accommodating 6, plus 1-2 children in the sleeping loft which is accessible only through one of the bedrooms. The attached barn is completely finished as a living room, opening onto a very private deck that overlooks a brook and a waterfall in the village, and distant hills beyond. The deck is great for evening meals outdoors in warmer weather, cooked on the small gas grill, or just relaxing and reading a book.
