Fanny Belle Farm

117 North Rd, Deerfield


If you love antiques and history, this is the home.  While much has remained the same, much has changed. As you walk through the 1773 farmhouse you will be delighted to find the warmth and charm one would expect while learning that all the homes systems have been updated.  
The first floor offers an inviting kitchen with large cooking fireplace with working beehive oven, built-ins, cabinets made of 1938 hurricane pine, stainless counter tops and appliances and a row of windows with a view to the back pasture.  Off the kitchen, what used to be the borning room is now an office. As you enter the sunny living room you will find another working fireplace which holds a secret of its own… an old Indian closet behind! As you head into the front hallway you will enjoy original wall stenciling done by Moses Eaton.  The stenciling continues into the large fireplaced dining room, and up the captain’s staircase which holds another of the homes original features…half way up the wall is a small door to an opening for a smoke chamber used back in the day for curing meats. The open beams, gunstock corners Indian shutters and the wide pine flooring throughout continues to add to the charm.  Rounding out the first floor is a nice half bath/laundry room and the back staircase.
Upstairs there is the master bedroom with working fireplace, a second bedroom also with its own working fireplace, a third bedroom, two cedar closets and his and hers bathrooms.  Yes, you read it correctly, his and hers bathrooms. No sharing here!  
As you enter through the side door from the court-yard area off the patio you will find yourself in the first ell of the home which was turned into a large inviting family room with barn board walls, and an inviting wood stove with brick hearth.  At the end of the family room is the entrance to a 3-season porch where one can enjoy sitting and watching your animals graze in the pasture or just enjoy the tranquility of the property. The 2nd ell off the south side of the house contains rustic, unfinished space used for wood storage, a workshop and access to another chicken coop.  It also contains what many of your friends and family won't have…the original 3 seater out house!
The farm is currently home to several Shetland Sheep, Nubian Goats, and various chickens, ducks & geese.  The owner has a wonderful road-side farm stand located in the solid 1800’s barn from which she sells fresh goat milk, cheeses, eggs, vegetables and wool products as well as a few other locally made products.  The location and the circular driveway make for great visibility and easy access for customers. The barn is 38’ x 57’ with a second level that can hold up to 500 bales of hay, an insulated milking room for the goats, frost free hydrant and has been well maintained.  It could also easily be converted for horses or cows.  
The 4.02 acres are beautifully laid out with 2 fenced pastures a pond, and several gardens. Conservation land directly across the street and behind you ensures that the view you have now is the view for years to come.
