Here’s some photos and captions of the property.
1026 Carpenter Road, Aurora – the facade faces north, the backyard & barns are all on the south side of the property.
There is a 2 car attached garage.
The Riding Arena is located off the Stables. Special sand was brought in to line the “floor” of the building.
Currently, used as a Indoor Riding Arena, but the potential for some other use is there – there are 14 foot high doors on the east & west of the building.
There is a wood shop that runs the Northside of the building, part of the barn has been used to store boats & vehicles in the winter & the east side is home to 2 peacocks & 2 peahens.
The other side of the chicken coop is currently being used as farm vehicle storage.
Grow your own.
Photo looks west towards the horse barn. There are 2 run-in sheds for horses.
Photo looking southwest from the paddocks.
There are 7/8 stalls, feed room, tack room, horse wash area, hay barn area, water & electricity in this barn.
Dog doesn’t convey (LOL).
The western side of the Horse Barn. The owners stack all the bailed hay here. There is one sheep left from a flock that was on the farm.
Inside the Horse Barn, here’s two stalls, and a inside horse wash area in-between. The feed room is located on the right.
All the doors slide and there’s plenty of room, the building backs up to some of the paddocks
Rocking on the Ridge, this overlooks Paines Creek, accessible from the other side, all on this property.
Paines Creek, wide, free flowing, slate stone bottom, substantial creek – flows into Cayuga Lake. All on this property.
Cooling off after the hike!
Fire pit on the trail – a big adventure in your own backyard.
It’s beautiful, quiet, hasn’t been hunted in 12 years, may have been the site of historic logging/saw mill. You can see Paines Creek in between the trees.
The owners believe that the house was built in 1840 – here is a tree that has “swallowed” a previous owners attempt at fencing – the wire “runs” through the tree.
Let’s look inside…
Entrance into the Mudroom, entrances to front yard & backyard where the barns are, there is a drain in the floor so that you can go get dirty & have fun and clean up is easier, and there is a built-in shoe storage under the stairs.
From Mudroom you enter into the Living Room.
You can see door to Mudroom & Library from the Living Room.
Ornate Tray Ceiling, built-in bookshelves with a real Library Ladder (so cool!), hardwood floors, window looks out over the from gardens.
