Mouthwatering would be an understatement. See, while its classic fieldstone manor home remains a work in progress (needs a little TLC), the outbuildings at Black Walnut Farm more than make up for it. As a whole, the estate, around since 1743, sits atop 72 preserved acres and includes lawn irrigation and central security. Here’s what it offers:

  • Single-bedroom guest house – This puppy has been expanded and boasts pine board floors, exposed beams, designer décor, and a stone interior archway. The kitchen, outfitted with SubZero and Asko appliances, has a vaulted ceiling and honed limestone counters. Its porch has Brazilian Ipe decking and is accessed by French doors.
  • Restored bank barn – Dubbed the “prize” of the property, the barn comes with beautifully pointed stone and has a massive French door entry. The space is viable as a gym, office, or entertaining area. Bonus: there’s a secure “secret” vault for wine collections, plus the entry-level parking court includes two heated garage bays.
  • Carriage house – A studio apartment with a full marble shower can be found here, so it’s perfect as a guest quarters or digs for your oldest. Includes two garage bays.
  • Others cool features: Log cabin, pool, shooting range, and pond.

The pool is actually fenced in, but is situated in such a way that takes advantage of the estate views. The main house, as we’ve already mentioned, needs a few tweaks but still retains its charm for the most part: pine board wood floors here too, exposed stone walls, foyer dining room, and a private library are among its spaces. A solarium is on the first level.
