Farmer housing description:

Secluded Elfenwood farm lies nested in a sun drenched valley beneath the Jay Mountain Range. Emerging from the woods through which the driveway ascends, one can see the 100 year old farmhouse across the field. Rich in history but renovated to modern standards the house is cozy and very private. A 5 acre hayfield separates the house and pastures from the forest which rings the property. Above the barn a vibrant little pond sports frogs and fish to delight anyone sitting in chairs along its bank. The house is set up to be off grid in any season if one so chooses. Just over 90 acres with maintained woods roads lets one partake in pastimes like hiking or cross country skiing. The barn was expanded to house and shelter horses or similar livestock, has an oversize heated workshop and an re-energizing cedar sauna. From the surrounding hushed woodlands an old orchard prompts wildlife to drop in on occasion whose antics are always entertaining to watch. Lovely views of Whiteface Mountain to the West and the Jay Range to the South provide gorgeous scenery and exceptional ambiance. Only every once in a very great while does a property like this become available with such an abundance of sought-after qualities. There are 2 1/2 miles of maintained trails for horseback riding, mountain biking and skiing in winter.

There is a 10KW solar PV system with battery backup, kicks in automatically if the grid goes down.
