Historic Country Farmhouse with stream frontage and bordering 810+ acres of conservation lands! Dating back to the early 1800's, this historic homestead was originally the home of Asa C.

Located on a quiet country road with sounds of the rushing river in the distance and gentle breezes through your large maples and oaks. Welcome home. Equidistant to The Berkshires and Northampton, one has endless options of cultural, dining, skiing, fishing, hiking and so many other activities, the choice is yours for the quiet country setting or for a short "less than an hour" scoot for anything and everything most would desire. remodeled kitchen with breakfast nook, large living room with fireplace, library and heated spa room with full size lap pool. Significant road frontage with no restrictions.
