400+ Acre, fourth generation working family farm with Impeccable Views of the Westfield River Valley and beyond. Located in Rural Western Massachusetts in the town of Cummington, this picturesque setting is equidistant to the Berkshires and Northampton areas for most of what anyone could ever desire. Very rich in history, this one of kind property is part of the original William Cullen Bryant Farm and estate dating back to the 1800's. The upper Bryant farm was built in 1871 by William Cullen Bryant for his eldest daughter Frances (1822-1893) and her husband Parke Godwin. In most recent years, the current owners have begun renovating the 5000+ sqft antique home with new roof, siding and trim, windows, kitchen and bath finished, and the caretaker's quarters started. Now ready to ... ... welcome the new steward's to make the needed and desired updates making this their own. Currently in Chapter 61A and APR, the taxes are incredibly inexpensive, and the possibilities are endless for the next generation of farming, whether that be grapes, cheese, fruit trees, or perhaps a greater initiative involving a non-profit cause. Currently (Floor Plans available upon request) the main home consists of 4 beds, 1 full bath and ample space for friends, family and just about any gathering one could imagine. Attached to the main home is the caretaker / in-law quarters consisting of another 3 bedrooms and 1 and a half baths in need of updating and renovations. A 2+bay garage under this area completes the farm house. Multiple barns, pasture, woodlands and unique rolling topography are your backdrop and panoramic long-range views await your framed daily viewing from the front country porch. As one of the earliest APR's in the Commonwealth, it leaves much for discussion as to the next owner's direction they wish to take this property in. This offering is so much more than the acreage and structures, this is a piece of American History neighboring 195 acre national historic landmark known as the William Cullen Bryant Homestead. *Livestock and farm equipment are not included in the sale, but negotiable if one has interest.
