Newel posts are not usually something worth remarking on in a home. Especially not in a home that spans 6,000 square feet on 70 glorious acres. But this newel post at this farmhouse is different. This newel post is sublime. This newel post is a fox head. There are other foxes tucked throughout the four-bedroom home, but we are glad to report that they are deployed thoughtfully rather than obsessively (we all have that one aunt with the cows).

The farmhouse is a dream of exposed wood. There is custom timber work throughout, the floors are random-width hardwood and the staircase was actually crafted by a carpenter the listing proclaims as locally renowned. The lower level on the home features a giant family room with fireplace with heated floors. Radiant heat also extends through the full bath, mudroom and laundry on that level. Bedrooms boast views of the countryside and the family pool. The home also claims three Rumford fireplaces.

In addition to the in-ground pool, the property has a natural pond and a running stream. The sale also includes a 10-stall horse barn, a three-bay run-in shed, a hay barn and a closed bay currently used as a shop. Among the 70 acres included on the property are four pastures, four small turnout areas and one recovery turn out for your horses.
