We're big fans of reviving historic homes here and this 52-acre property, enclosed by original hand-built stone walls dating back to the 1700s, is a fantastic example. The picture-perfect country estate, new on the market for $2.475M, includes a circa-1760 farmhouse, a 2,000-square-foot horse barn, pond, fruit orchards, plus hiking and riding trails, all surrounded mostly by conservation land. The highlight, of course, is the four-bedroom farmhouse, which has been restored and rebuilt to an impressive rustic-modern effect.

While most walls of the home were recently erected and there's also a new chef's kitchen and internet-connected heating and cooling capability, the historic bones are easy to spot. There are original beams exposed in the two-story entry, four original stone fireplaces, and original wide-plank flooring in the second floor bedrooms. According to Zillow, the restoration process surfaced quite a few artifacts, including a bayonet from a French rifle traced to the French and Indian War (1754–1763). The renovated guesthouse adds another three bedrooms.
