Fall is upon us, and our listing at 43 Fair Street is still available, much to our surprise! This lovingly renovated 1756 sf, 3 bedroom, 2 bath farmhouse sits on a 1/2 acre lot, abutting the fairgrounds in downtown Northampton. It has been renovated top to bottom, inside and out by the previous owners, and maintained and improved upon by the current owners. Central A/C was installed just this summer! This house has the charm of a farmhouse, with all the modern conveniences and energy efficiency of a new home. Come take a look at this special house, which is a stone's throw to downtown Northampton, the entrance to 91 and the bridge to Hadley and Amherst. From the peaceful front porch, to the open concept living/dining room and kitchen, to the pellet stove, the hardwood floors and clawfoot tub in the downstairs bath - this house oozes charm and character.
The price has recently been lowered to $319,000!
To follow is a testimonial from the current owners, describing what they have loved about their home and the proximity to the fairgrounds.
"People always ask - What's it like living next to the fairgrounds. Well, we have loved it! Contrary to peoples' assumptions, it's quieter and less noisy here than other parts of town because of the fairgrounds. Sure, the 3-County Fair in the fall is quite an event (and we get free tickets), and for that weekend our street is busy, but we hardly notice the other fairground events throughout the year. Throughout the summer there are horseshows, but all of the stalls, barns and trailer parking are on the other side of the fairgrounds, so we get to enjoy the views of the horses without all of the traffic. The Morgan Horse Show comes in the middle of the summer and is longer than the other shows - about a week and a bit busier, but it's not a bother and we've always enjoyed walking across the street to watch the evening events. The fall, winter and spring are all quiet. We've always thought that it was the best of both worlds - like living in the country, but so close to town.
