Description

 Some places just feel like a place apart – enhanced and different from its neighbors.  One of those special places is the Price Farm.  Artfully sited on its 8.4 acres is a large modern farmhouse with tremendous mountain views, outbuildings devoted to each one of your hobby farm desires, pleasant pastures, a burbling stream or two, and a charming woodland ramble.  In short, Price farm punches well above its weight and creates its own environment.  For someone seeking a little bit of everything in a hobby farm in a delightful setting,  Price farm is a rare instance where you can have it all.

Residence

The 2008 built house is a modernized version of a traditional farm house.  Instead of a center hall there is a central two story great room which provides a dramatic focal point.   A large eat-in kitchen is a wonderful gathering place for cooks and guests.   The mountain views are beautifully captured by walls of windows in rooms designed to appear like enclosed porches on the main and upper levels.  Each of the three bedrooms is its own suite and offers privacy to owners and guests.  A recently finished basement provides additional living space for a growing family, or rooms for hobbies and other activities.

Outbuildings

One of the great assets of Price farm is the wonderful stock of outbuildings.   Not only is every type of structure you’d require already in place, but they are also wonderfully sited and attractive structures for your livestock and other hobbies.  Everything is set up for easy access from the house, but just far enough away that they aren’t in the way.

These include:

  • Garden Shed –  Gardening shed in middle of fenced garden.
  • Loading Dock – a large western-fronted hobby workshop with woodstove and electricity, front porch, and storage below.
  • Barn – Metal structure with 3 stalls suitable for small livestock, gravel floor, parking/storage for farm vehicles,
  • Rabbit House – Small coop structure ideal for poultry or small livestock – small enclosed pen is attached.
  • Goat Barn – Small barn for smaller livestock with 2 small stalls.
  • Chicken Coop –  Storybook structure with small side deck.  Comfortable hen house with nestboxes accessible from outside for easy egg gathering.
  • Donkey Barn – Split level barn with room for feed storage and shelter for donkeys.

  • Stream Pavilion – Open are pavilion perched over stream.  Small storage room, grill area, and covered eating area.  Tree grows through the middle of the structure.

Grounds

The magic of Price Farm is not the outstanding mountain views (though they help), rather it is the ability of its eight acres to seem much, much larger than they are.  In part this is due to the layout of the lot, but it’s also a reflection of the artful way that outbuildings have been positioned in the property to create a sense of destination as one travels from one end to the other.  The property entrance is over an old roadbed which creates a sense of privacy and separation from the entrance on Aaron Mountain Road.  Once inside the gates, the house takes a commanding position on the left surrounded by a hydrangea hedge, while the farm lane continues straight ahead.  To the right is a well fenced garden area ideal for all sorts of vegetables.  A charming garden shed sits in the middle of this productive garden.  Water is provided by a frost-free yard hydrant.

Just below the garden area are several outbuildings clustered together.  These provide parking areas for farm and lawn vehicles and storage and workshop areas.  Below this the farm path begins to meander and provide scenic vistas of a neighboring pond and the mountains beyond.  Tucked in a pine grove are the goat barn and chicken coop.  Further along is a small fenced paddock and the donkey barn, followed by a fenced pasture suitable for livestock.  Beyond this field is a bold stream that is spring fed along its way.  On its banks is a picnic area centered around the stream pavilion.  Further along a lane is the beekeepers barn.

A handsome wooden bridge takes one across the stream into a woodland ramble. The woods are a mix of hardwoods and pines and rise up on a small bluff.  Here a network of trails branch off to create a loop with various seating areas and sculptural elements to catch the eye.   It’s amazing how far away the house and the rest of the world feels from this vantage point.
