Welcome to Saltbox Farm, a 3,296 square foot farm-house with 1 acre of flat land, mature trees and a rich history.
The 5 bedroom, two bath house was built in 1805 and is complete with five aMARzing fireplaces, hardwood floors and the original chestnut beams throughout. A two-car garage was attached later, in the same style as the house. This historic home boasts amazing views of lush woods and wide sweeping fields. Surrounded on three sides by the Cheshire Land Trust, you can rest assured that these views will remain unspoiled. One of Cheshire’s oldest houses, Saltbox Farm is full of classic New England character and is waiting for the next generation to restore, love and enjoy. All new windows and electric mean this home is ready to be customized and make your own!
Historical and fun fact: Local lore names the house as one of the stops on the famous Underground Railroad; the secret room behind a fireplace tells the story of slaves hiding until dark. When the sun set, it was safe to travel, to Canada and to freedom.
Convenient to I-91 and I-84, Cheshire is only 2 hours drive from New York, but feels like a world away.
Come see Saltbox Farm and make your historic home dreams come true.
