This beautiful early 18th century home looks like it just sprung from the pages of Architectural Digest. Retaining much of the original charm, including two fireplaces with early wall panels and mantels, it has been updated giving a fresh, modern appeal. During the renovation, special attention was made to specify low carbon and healthy material choices while honoring traditional building methods. Grab your binoculars, this home is set on almost 7 acres of jaw dropping beauty including wetlands, meadow and woodland, attracting a wide variety of birds. If you are looking to homestead, you'll appreciate the mix of heirloom and hybrid fruit trees as well as the sturdy barn. The barn may have potential for additional living space or perhaps an art studio or workshop? There are two bedrooms in the main house, but the septic is for a 4-bedroom home. This house's rich history is linked to the early Quakers who settled Spring Hill, one of Sandwich's most beautiful historic districts.
