The core of the main floor addition is the impressive Great Room with heated floors, stone fireplace in the Rumford style, multiple walk-outs, and lovely views.
Office 10' x 10'

Bedrooms 2, 3 & 4
There are 3 bedrooms and large bathroom on the second floor of the original farmhouse. All bedrooms have windows, hardwood floors and closet/storage space. One can tell the original farm was quite prosperous in its day as the home is a full 2-storey dwelling as opposed to the 1.5 storey dwellings commonly found in the era.
Master Suite 21'10" x 21'2"
Accessed by its own staircase is the newly created Master Suite. This expansive room enjoys views in 3 directions, a large walk-in closet and ensuite bath. The double vanity found its way to Long Lane Farm from its previous use as the display counter from the village bakery in Cooksville - it has a wonderful patina complemented by the antique brass fixtures. There is also second floor laundry in the Master Suite.
In the lower level are a large work-out room, utility room and additional laundry room. Ample storage space.
