Get a taste of early Americana in this beautifully restored 19th century farmhouse.
Built in the 1850s, this home has been meticulously restored by its current owner, who is an interior designer.
“She really restored it and brought it back to what it used to look like, so the floorplan is very original,” said listing agent Janet Markarian of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.
Built on 1.29 acres and located at 640 Skippers Lane in Orient, the 1,700-square-foot house has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, an eat-in gourmet kitchen, formal dining room, porch and space for an office. The property also offers stunning views of Orient Bay and the surrounding farmland.
In addition to the farmhouse, there are also three outbuildings on the property. A barn and potting shed are earlier buildings that were part of the original farm; the third building is a two-car garage built in the mid-20th century.
To this day, one acre of the property remains farmland and is currently leased to and farmed by nearby Latham Farms.
The property sits on a quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of Orient Village.
“There’s definitely room to build,” Markarian said. “This would certainly make for either a beautiful weekend retreat or permanent home.”
While private, the house is still centrally located so that everything is easily accessable, Markarian said.
“At the end of Skipper’s Lane you can walk to a little public accessway to the bay,” she said. “Plus, it’s a short stroll to the Orient Village Country Store, to the post office. You can ride your bike to a number of beaches.”
“You’re right in the heart of Orient Village, but Skippers Lane is also very private,” Markarian continued. “So there’s a lot of privacy, plus access to the village.”
