WINDSOR – There are two part to this spacious farmhouse on 39 acres: the original, 1850 home, and a 2004 addition, for a total of 5,500 square feet of living space.

Two parts, but endless possibilities. The home’s 12 rooms include bonus rooms plus areas that provide floor-plan flexibility, and a first-floor bedroom makes single-level living an option.

The slate-floored great room/family room, with a big mudroom in its ell, occupies most of the expansion, has one of the home’s three wood stoves and a wall of west-facing windows, and is large enough to serve multiple purposes.

Thanks to an in-home business being permitted here, the property has excellent potential to house a yoga studio, a day care, or a physical therapy practice, for which the swim spa would be a great amenity. Approximately 10 acres are cleared and ready for organic or other farming or establishing an equestrian facility.

Some other acres are preserved land in tree growth. Please note that a subdivision possibility for another dwelling or two could also be explored. As is, there are two outbuildings: a three-vehicle, detached garage with a finished room (presently a music studio) above; and a grain house with dual covering and a hayloft.

The house interior needs cosmetic work, but its older portion retains considerable period charm and, of course, vintage features, such as built-in drawers in two upstairs rooms. There are three full baths – the newest, with its vessel sink on a marble vanity, and deep soaking tub, is especially cool. The master suite has a deep walk-in closet and a large accessory room that’s perfect for exercise equipment, or use as a library/media room.

The home at 23 Griffin Road, Windsor, is listed for sale at $350,000 by Lori Dube of Sprague & Curtis Real Estate in Augusta. Annual taxes are $3,933. Please contact Lori at 623-1123 ext. 209; 620-0886; or at [email protected].
