Welcome to the Goodsell Barn; an original 1800 barn converted to a 2-3 story residence, circa 1920, on 3.5 acres. The home is warm and inviting with many special and original architectural details: posts & beams, carved paneling in formal spaces, leaded windows, quarter sawn oak floors, plaster walls, wrought iron railings, barn siding and more.
The unique foyer is defined by the special leaded curved window with window seat and marble flooring. Enter the living room, with carved paneling and beautiful quarter sawn oak floors. Enjoy an after-dinner drink in front of the cozy fireplace. The formal dining room is a beautiful spot to entertain with a wall of leaded windows and French doors out to the patio. The home was updated with a large, two-story eat-in kitchen, with windows on four sides, allowing natural light to flood the space. Wood cabinetry and counter tops complement the integrity of this antique barn. Create a culinary masterpiece with the high-end appliances. Dine, entertain and/or relax in the screened-in porch, which feels like a tree house perched above the yard. Or dine al fresco with options on the patio and deck.
From the kitchen, descend to TV room in the walk-out lower level. The garage is unique; not only is there plenty of storage, but original posts and a wall of windows in the heated space. This area feels more like a workshop than a garage. Laundry & work rooms are also located on this lower level.
Relax in your 2nd floor master bedroom with plaster walls, hardwood floors, posts and beams, fireplace and master bath. As you walk down the hallway, you’ll be mesmerized by the unique leaded glass windows at eye level above the intricate wrought iron railings. These windows allow the afternoon sunshine to fill the foyer below & the upstairs hallway. There are two additional bedrooms sharing a hall bath and the 4th bedroom is en-suite. An additional guest bedroom with a full bath is on the 1st floor as well as a home office, with French doors leading out to the patio.
This quintessential New England property is adorned with stone walls, stately trees and lush landscaping. The sprawling, level lawn is surrounded by picturesque wooded areas. Three and a half acres envelope this charming, historic barn and the stone tool shed enhances its rustic vibe. Fall in love with this character-filled antique home that blends comfort and casual elegance in a special setting.
