Between 2001 and 2010 this 100+ year-old farm house was completely restored and modernized, with the least negative impact on the environment & the smallest carbon footprint possible. This was achieved in three phases. The first phase created a completely new energy-efficient building envelope, including steel roofing, & the addition of a downstairs bedroom suite & attached garage. In this phase the mechanical systems & all the appliances were replaced. A new central AC system was added. The second phase involved a second building addition to create the home's great room & a second floor bedroom suite. The third phase involved adding a solar hot water system & a solar electric system. With the completion of the third phase, the home's present configuration of highly functional living space was achieved, w/ a large country kitchen, a great room, three bedrooms, two full bathrooms,a laundry room, office, three-season porch,wood burning stove in the kitchen & two gas fireplaces. Throughout all phases, special care was taken in adding terraces, rock walls and stone patios to create several gardens that preserve many old & unique varieties of perennial flowers, vegetables & trees, including apple trees. An emergency generator large enough to support all the critical systems(water supply, heating system, communications, etc.) was installed. A dedicated reinforced concrete tornado shelter was also constructed.
The barns and fences have been extensively renovated within the last five years. The original, nearly 100 year old, two-story hip-roofed hay barn has been meticulously restored. All of the original wooden structure, built from virgin timber, has been preserved. By installing two new dutch-doors, new shutters and a new louvered-window in the peak of the roof, and two retractable doors in the center of the hay loft floor, a natural draft ventilation system has been created, adaptable to ensure horse comfort in all four seasons. Four new paneled box stalls were added in the newer 72x54' Clearly pole barn. There are also three tie-stalls. There is a large open-space in this pole barn, with 13' of overhead clearance, that creates a training arena. The tack room was also extensively renovated. A unique geothermal frost-free stock watering system was installed. An engineered sedimentation, erosion control & manure management system has been constructed to collect and treat the storm water from the paddocks. New oak plank fencing now encloses three large paddocks. Two loafing sheds were also renovated. The property includes two fenced pastures.
