The John Benedict-Greenley house dates back to 1770 or earlier, and has been a working farmhouse, a cobbler's factory, and a distillery. History oozes from this one; property history available on request. Six BR's and innumerable nooks and cranies, the house today offers a dramatic dining room with arched ceiling, a 2-BR cottage with kitchen and LR as well as endless workshops and garage spaces. Most buyers will want to update this gem but with an eye on historic preservation. The 2 1/2 acres are largely open and flat, tho extensive woodlands offfer privacy. Guest house with 2 BR plus LR and kitchen adds additional 2,300 sf, all of which was recently updated. Total living space thus 6,200 sf. Location close to Town, so walking is possible. Elementary school just one block away. Elevator possible in Cottage.
