The hillside root cellar, finished in 2016, has two approx. 12’ x 14’ underground storage rooms with a poured concrete floor and ceiling and a 19’ x 19’ front room with a sliding door that’s excellent for lawn care/recreational equipment storage.

The land is striking, in its variation and beauty. The pastures have been used to raise grass-fed beef and pastured poultry. All of the land is organic. There are mature apple and pear trees, as well as many wild edibles like morel mushrooms and black caps, raspberries, currants and more. Deer and wild turkeys are often seen in the woods and fields.
