"Over 60 years ago, my grandmother bought an early 1800s farmhouse on Stannard Mountain and brought it to Greensboro where she lovingly restored it. Soon after, my mother acquired an even older schoolhouse in Walden and moved it just a stone's throw from the farmhouse. I've long enjoyed this graceful home and its deeded easement to the lake. The farmhouse embraces you with a charming & cozy sense of 19th-century living, wide floorboards with wormholes, a wood stove in the dining room; a fireplace in the living room to warm on cold nights; and, a kitchen with custom cabinets & skylights. An attached great room, formerly the barn, heats with a pellet stove, under old beams & with sliding glass-doors for expansive southern views of the lawn, field, & lake. The schoolhouse, our 3-bedroom guest cottage, boasts a high-ceiling living room. A wood stove & propane heater enable the schoolhouse to be used from mid-May thru mid-October. The schoolhouse rents summer & fall for $1,200/week. Hidden in the woods on a sloping hill overlooking our stream is a custom-built cabin, warmed with a wood stove, a perfect, quiet retreat. We tap our maple trees for syrup, sold at local stores & farmers' markets. Our vegetable garden yields more fresh produce for eating, canning & freezing than we can use. We have apple trees, blueberries, and a 1-acre wild berry patch. Hardwood is plentiful for heating - we use the oil furnace minimally - and there are hundreds of cedars for rail fences & posts."
