Description of the property’s current condition and current use(s):

In mid 1800's William McMurdy purchased what was then a rough farm'' and began the laborious task of turning it into a productive homestead. In 1890, his son Joseph purchased and took over his father's ...153 acres of well improved land and carried on the work the elder McMurdy so successfully inaugurated.''

Nearly 150 years later and virtually without interruption the tradition continued. To the present day, various owners and inhabitants have worked the land producing crops, livestock and raising families. So, perhaps now it's your turn to assume the stewardship?

Hardwood floors, Marvin windows, New roof, and system upgrades. No question that there's interior painting to be done and it's certain You'll to want to add your own special touches as you see fit.

The outbuildings include fully functioning dairy /livestock barn, farm store, with commercial kitchen currently used to make cheeses and other delectable delights. Hundreds and hundreds of taps connected to existing pipelines originating from your own high-producing, maple trees to make delicious, prime syrup rendered in the old school'' sap house. Springs (with a history - ask we'll be happy to tell ) year-round stream and a wonderful spring-fed pond ideal for refreshing summertime, swim fests and or winter wonderland, ice skating parties.
