In 1910, the home, described at the time as 'an old two-family house by the Nubanusit River', was purchased by Marian and Edward MacDowell to be used as housing for the first male artists accepted to the world famous MacDowell Colony, the oldest artist colony in the United States. Today you will find a beautifully updated farmhouse along with a recently created Carriage House. The farmhouse features an open kitchen, a light filled dining room, a living room with wood-burning fireplace, 4 bedrooms each with bath, some with gas stove fireplaces, a reading room and a third floor getaway. The architect designed carriage house has great natural light, views of the river, its changing wildlife, open floor plan for living, dining and cooking plus 3 bedrooms and 2 baths -- and features maple hardwood flooring, a kitchen island with a butcher block top and is wired for sound. Today, the property serves as the Little River B&B -- with the farmhouse being for the guests and the carriage house for the owners. Tomorrow, it can be home to an expanded family/friend compound or remain as a B&B. The current owners, working with architects, excellent craftspeople and incorporating high quality materials transformed the property inside and out. You will find established perennial gardens, a riverside deck for enjoying the wildlife and great spots for Adirondack chairs. You can take a walk throughout both homes by viewing the 3D virtual tours and floor plans are included with the photos.
