42 French Rd, Cummington, MA 01026  

Sale Price
As you drive down the country lane you'll feel you're going back in time. At the end of the road, this secluded antique cape was built for Lt. Steven French in 1780 and is surrounded by 70 acres of meadows and woods. The property is protected by a conservation restriction and is crisscrossed by old stone walls, vernal streams and fence rows of ancient ash, maple and cherry trees. The woods and fields constitute a thriving bird and wildlife habitat. The house is shaded by old sugar maples in summer and open to bright eastern and southern sun in the winter. A careful restoration in the 1970's included foundation work, rebuilt chimney and fireplaces, sills, wiring, and plumbing. There are 2 spacious front rooms, each with a stone fireplace, a large keeping room, 2 full bathrooms and 3 bedrooms all on the main level. The large country kitchen features cabinets, drawers and counters made of local butternut and cherry. The central chimney also has a beehive baking oven. Potential horse farm.
