About five years ago, this farm house stood dilapidated and in need of a lot of TLC. It had been abandoned and left vacant for many years until a local builder purchased the farm along with its 70 acres.

The builder left the farmhouse untouched while he worked on his plans for subdividing the acreage. It was a diamond in the rough and I knew the old place had character and the potential to be transformed into a rustic and charming home. Today, it's all that and more. The owners, John and Robin who purchased the farm from the builder as is, did a wonderful job adding their personal touches meanwhile, keeping the farmstead look alive. I wish I had a picture of the farm house before renovations to better illustrate why I'm even blogging about this.

Everything in red was part of the original house. They enclosed the front porch and added the portion to the left. The back of the house has a big covered deck overlooking acres of serene farmland. The best part is that I pass this place everyday and remember how it used to look. I'm so glad it's been tastefully restored into a beautiful farm house that makes the neighbors a little envious but at the same time, glad someone else saw a hidden gem. Our dog, Nyati lived on this farm until we adopted him.

I agree, they did a great job. Such a lovely setting they have and those views are to die for!
