All aboard for a country estate with a caboose

Over 16 acres, a home for horses, and that caboose

Via Keller Williams

All aboard! This house has a caboose. And, it has bedrooms and things like that, too.

It’s all part of a country estate built in 1996. A classic Colonial farmhouse design sits on over 16 acres of land that looks more like a park than a farm. Parks are probably easier to take care of. The steep-pitched roof, dormers, and a wrap-around porch fit the design well, and also make sense for maximizing living and relaxing spaces.

Inside, a massive stone tile fireplace holds a cleaner and more efficient wood stove. Open fires can be romantic, but cleaning the soot off the windows can be a pain.

A formal dining room with country chandelier has two walls of mullioned windows and a sweeping view of the grounds. Enjoy the flowering shrubbery, in season.

Country kitchens are large, as this one is. Glass display cases, a soft green paint scheme, and wood rather than stone work island soften the feel of the room.

Four bedrooms and two and a quarter bathrooms in 3,936 square feet means lots of room for family and guests. There’s even room for a pool table.

Visiting the caboose must be part of every tour. An extra few hundred square feet of living space comes in handy, especially when it includes stories. Some turn them into ADUs. This one looks like it is set up as a shop, yet another chapter in its life. Think of it as a tiny house on wheels, big steel wheels.

The country estate includes a lot of country. A two stall barn and an arena mean a home for horses, too. A shop that’s 36 feet by 30 feet provides more space for projects, or maybe just storage.

The package is priced at $724,500. The uncommon character may be priceless.
