The Thomas Gallagher Farm
The Thomas Gallagher farm is steeped in local history, the Crown gifted this land to the Gallagher family in 1835, and the original Deed is displayed in the house. They built the farmhouse that resides today in 1845, and the outbuildings in 1901. This was a working farm, breeding and raising heritage livestock. The current owners are the 3rd family to reside at this property. So much history to see as you walk through the home and outbuildings but updated for the 21st century!
A long tree lined driveway leads to this charming board and batten farmhouse set on 18.85 rolling acres with incredible views overlooking the countryside and a stream.
Every good farmhouse needs a mudroom, and this one has a very generous sized mud room with the main floor laundry. The original pine plank flooring runs through most of the house, with a warm and welcoming patina. Many other original features such as the window trim, paneled wood work, baseboards and the staircase are still here! The primary bedroom is spacious and has plenty of natural light through south windows overlooking a paddock for the horses. There are two other bedrooms located on the upper floor along with a 4 piece bathroom. The combined kitchen and dinning room has beautiful windows and a large woodstove that heats the entire house in the winter. The family room with the original brick fireplace and a 3 piece bath complete the main floor. The front entrance of the home has a large deck for enjoying a morning coffee and a great place to enjoy the sunset at the end of the day.
A large bank style barn has an entertaining space on the upper level combined with hayloft area, and below are 6 stalls, with hydro and water and a grooming area.
The heated workshop is part of a metal building that has a run in shed for the horses from one of the paddocks. An additional drive shed and chicken coop make this the perfect hobby farm for horses and chickens!
Part of the property has been planted in evergreen trees and falls under a managed forest program for a lower tax rate.
