https://youtu.be/JwIG9EanvMM

Twenty years ago I first noticed this special property located on the South Shore. I was immediately attracted to the private setting situated on the quiet road just off the paved road close to Lockeport and Shelburne. The red farmhouse was positioned on a gentle knoll, way back off the road surrounded by old growth forest, pasture, stone walls and running to the ocean. When I had the opportunity to visit the property my curb-side expectations were exceeded.

The traditional three level classic “Saltbox” home dates back to 1826. The house has been gutted, rebuilt, renovated and remodeled keeping the original circa 1826 architectural details, floors and trims while meticulously finishing the interior and exterior to a very high standard.
