Let me take you on a tour of Hillside Farm. Many of the homes are sprawling. I think each new generation adds to the house with new updates, new rooms, more modern conveniences, which this home has all of the above. We are staying in the front wing which is the original portion of the house. A lovely home in the day and of course still is. Wide plank pine floors, brick fireplaces in the parlor, dining room, and kitchen with cooking irons still in place. Their are 3 staircases. The homes foundation which can be seen down in the spooky basement is made of huge granite boulders surrounded by mortar. It sits on 5 acres with a pond. There's another rock foundation in the back with clay pipes sticking out of the walls. Could it have been an earlier home? Maybe a cooking kitchen?
