Pierson Farmhouse, listed on the National Registry of Historical Places in 1986, is a large 4000 sq ft, stone, old world stucco and wood sided home situated on 3 + acres just west of The Village and a mere half mile from the Pennsylvania state line. Owned by one family, its namesake, from the late 1700’s until 1990, the main house has evolved and expanded over hundreds of years from its beginnings as a log home. The current owner spared no expense in bringing the property to the 21st century, most recently from 2012 - 14, while thoughtfully preserving its historical integrity. This house features the original, double stone fireplace, random width flooring of red, white oak, pine, and white ash; cherry cabinetry in the kitchen; black walnut built-ins in the master bedroom; deep window sills, pocket doors and exposed wood beams, none of which can be duplicated or afforded in today’s modern construction. The kitchen has island seating, a 5 burner cook top and granite counter tops; and an adjacent sun filled breakfast and sitting room occupying the rear of the house, where it’s easy to believe you are in your own world. 3.1 modern baths, 200 AMP electrical service, Anderson windows, newer plumbing and HVAC, newer roof on the main house with gutters and downspouts are just some of the improvements. Three large bedrooms on the 2nd level (including main w/ en-suite) and a 4th (possibly 5th) on the 3rd level with a shared full bath, sitting room, and loft storage room. There are endless possibilities for the use of the multiple outbuildings, including the timber frame and stone 3 level bank barn, c. 1820 which houses an enormous 2nd level entertainment room. A 3 car detached garage/carport with potting shed, a milk shed, and a 2 stall stable with adjacent fenced in field are all on grounds and afford one with amazing space for an enviable in-home office or business. Park an infinite number of cars on the expansive U-shaped driveway, and pad next to the barn. Not to be overlooked are the grounds, filled with beautiful specimen trees and plantings, some dating back 100 years. This home has an elevated view from its front porch, perched over the land and pond which was the former 130+ acre farm, now community of Pierson’s Ridge, It is an idyllic property, which perfectly blends rural living in the midst of all of the conveniences in suburbia. Buyers contemplating business options should consult with NCCo. While meticulously cared for, and in very good condition, property is 200+ years old, with ongoing maintenance needs. The property is being sold as-is. Inspections are encouraged, but are for informational purposes only.
