Property Description

La Ferme des Reves,(The Farm of Dreams), truly expresses the character of this remarkably beautiful 3.2 acre heritage property & home - an oasis of calm & beauty that exquisitely shelters a family & provides sufficient land for the addition of 1 or 2 additional family dwellings.The home was once a dairy barn, which was part of a much larger Estate, & was converted to a home about 40 years ago. The building is reminiscent of a French farmhouse w/ a unique & beautiful sense of style.The 3800 SF home has 4 distinct living areas: The west wing, including Library, Dining Room & Kitchen, the central area, of Living Room & Study, the south bedroom wing, w/three bedrooms & four-piece bathroom, & the upper 800 SF Master Bedroom and Ensuite, created within the original hayloft, w/ its 20 foot ceilings. A stewardship of love & care has been dedicated to the whole property, which also includes a guest cottage, a 3000 SF barn/theatre, & a cutting garden, laid out in the French country style.
