You could be the farmer in the dell!
This classic century farm in Winchester dates back to 1906 and it features four separate dwellings and 61 acres of fertile land. Can you believe that such a place exists just 60 miles away from the city?
The property is located at 690 Shady Elm Road and is currently listed for $2,500,000 by Long and Foster.
Don't be fooled by the history of the place; you could easily reinvent it as a profitable bed and breakfast or special event venue. If you have a big family, you could keep the whole parcel private and let everyone have their pick of homes! With so much land, you could really do whatever you want.
The manor house was built in 1906 as the main home on the property. It has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and is move-in ready.
Three rustic log cabins dot the property. Each has its own unique layout, with a full kitchen, bedrooms, and living space. The largest is called "Herd's Inn" and is currently being used as a rental property. The income potential of having so many dwellings on the land is practically unlimited!
Last, but certainly not least, a quirky tiny house on stilts, known as "The Bird's Nest," would make a great guest house.
In addition to the multiple homes on the property, there are several outbuildings including barns, functional silos, and stables. The surrounding farmland is fertile and certified organic, if you choose to go that route.
This once-in-a-lifetime property is a great opportunity to own a century farm in the heart of beautiful Winchester. Could this sort of country life be in your future?
