Description

Welcome to Music Vale Farm. Rich in history, this long-admired, 97-acre retreat offers an opportunity to cultivate, forest and preserve unspoiled woodlands and open pasturage. A conservation easement allows farming and forestry on more than 21+ ac. of fields and 70+ ac. forest. The east branch of the designated Wild and Scenic Eight Mile River crosses the western section. Upland pastures and trails offer exceptional, dry footing. Enter from Pratt Road, passing the hallmark red barn. An evergreen allee leads to a well-maintained and updated farmhouse - "Happy Home. Built in 1820 as the private home of Orramel Whittlesey, founder of Music Vale Seminary (1839), one of the first degree granting music schools in the country.

Rambling as farmhouses do, it retains original charm with a comfortable layout enhanced with mechanical/structural updates by housewright Skip Broom. The kitchen, living room and dining room have expansive windows/doors drawing you outdoors. Two first-floor bedrooms combine creating a master suite. Upstairs are 2 bedrooms. There is a first-floor laundry, workshop and two car garage. The 2cnd floor office and artist studio accessed from the workshop staircase are not included in the SF.
