Before we get into the historical aspect of Waterford Farm’s interior, let’s take a moment to appreciate its vast acreage, which is enough to encompass a pond and the Muddy Run stream. No wonder the current owners use it for eventing!
Located on approximately 80 acres of hilly land, the farm has eventing fences and an an outdoor sand ring for equestrian activities. There’s also a dressage ring, horse walker, and 12-stall bank barn with a tack room and wash stall.
Inside the 18th-century farmhouse, impressive views of the property from the living room could leave anyone speechless.
The renovated gourmet kitchen with soapstone countertops has kept its rustic charm despite a Viking Range and Sub Zero refrigerator. The stove's backsplash portrays the home's surrounding landscape.
Apparently, cooking here will improve your skills: an open dining area connected to the kitchen allows conversation with guests "while you're creating a culinary masterpiece."
Other amenities include a deck, a multipurpose room, an outdoor built-in grill, and a swimming pool that's been built into the hillside and is surrounded by a private stone wall. The nearby pool house has one bedroom, while two tenant houses are also on the premises.
