The options are endless.Tucked away from the main house and barn, there is a separate writer's studio, 1 1/2 car garage, a milkhouse and a round chicken coop. There are beautiful rolling acres of open meadows, which is ideal for equestrians. There is not a house in sight and this gem is so quiet and peaceful.
