House of the Week: Country charm
Just off the beaten path in the heart of the Westport countryside is an antique farmhouse with more than eight acres of open fields, riding trails and woodlands.
The home has three bedrooms and a full bath with an open living concept on the first floor, hardwood floors and a large covered porch overlooking the vast grounds.
While maintaining its charm and detail from the past, the Gambral Colonial-style home has been updated for today's living. Built in 1740, there is more than 2,300 square feet of living space. Upgrades include a newer roof, windows and septic system.
For the horse lovers, a four-stall barn is complete with a 60-foot official round ring for quarter horses, a viewing catwalk, loading dock, tack room, equipment garage and more. An auxiliary barn has two additional stalls.
The property has lush perennials and mature plantings and is located less than two miles from the Atlantic Ocean. There is potential for a three-lot sub-division.
The home is available for the asking price of $599,000. For more information or to schedule a showing, contact Karen Barney at Keller Williams Realty at 774-678-1999.
