A working crop farm since the early 1800s, the farm has a 4,000 sq ft brick farmhouse (circa 1885) that is currently used as two rental units. The farmhouse has wide plank floors, high ceilings and deep window sills; it could be a wonderful single-family restoration.

This building site is on an 80 acre subdivision of the farm that can be sold separately if an owner wants some liquidity.

The 4000 sf farmhouse is divided into two residential units, one being a 2-bedroom/1.5 bath unit and the other having 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths.
