An updated 19th century farmhouse on Orient Point is on the market for $1.489 million.
Built in 1890, the 2,400-square-foot home on Main Road has four bedrooms, 2½ bathrooms, painted original pine wood floors, a living room with a bay window, family room with painted wood paneling, kitchen with wide-planked wood flooring and bathroom with clawfoot tub and wood-paneled walls and ceiling.
The 1.63-acre property has a new heated pool with spa hot tub, outdoor kitchen, deck, dining pergola, solar panels and an outdoor shower and potting shed.
Across from the pool is a 19th century 1,700-square-foot post-and-beam barn with hay lofts on each side.
“It’s in good shape and it’s been there forever,” listing agent Janet Markarian of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty says of the barn. “It has a root cellar underneath and can be great for an artist’s studio or outdoor dining. It’s not heated or habitable space, but it’s a beautiful accessory structure.”
With annual property taxes of $6,875, the home is in the Oysterponds Union Free School District and close to Orient State Park, Orient village, beaches and the ferry to New London, Conn.
The house is “owned by an artist and an architect, so it’s very stylish,” says Markarian. “The pool is just done really well and the whole layout is pretty.“
