Modern Amenities

Once in a lifetime opportunity - own the magnificent and prestigious McNaught family farm, established 1817.  Located on 8 acres (2 deeds ) 4 acres of manicured lawn and 4 acres of tended rolling meadows in the stunningly beautiful town of Bovina.  The McNaught Family Farm was established by Scottish immigrants in 1817, and was held by five successive generations of McNaughts until 1962. The house combines heritage and authenticity with old world construction and craftsmanship, and all of the modern amenities now added.

With the 4 bedrooms and 2 bath plus numerous bonus rooms, this home is spacious, bright, and airy, with 9 foot high ceilings and over 3,000 square feet of living area, and is designed so that even a large family has both sizable common areas in which to gather, engage, and interact, and at the same time more than a few private spaces for individuals to work, relax, and recharge.
The first view is a majestic wide staircase featuring a carved newel post and spindled railing with a heavy handrail that curves at the top.  The style of the staircase is matched in the more public front rooms of the farmhouse with generously proportioned baseboards, windows,  door casings, and wainscoting. There are wide plank, wooden floors throughout the house.

Sweeping into the kitchen through the living room, the visitor enters an enormous 30x15 foot country kitchen'' with a dining area large enough to easily accommodate a ten foot long dining table. Light streams into the kitchen from three sides, and particularly through the triple casement window mounted above the sink at the far end of the kitchen, affording panoramic views. The kitchen features a professional 5 burner stove, as well as 2 sinks and 2 dishwashers, with 1 sink and 1 dishwasher housed in the kitchen island or counter.

A good-sized bedroom is off the kitchen's left corner, to the left of the living room entrance to the kitchen. This bedroom is a favorite because of its regular shape and the brightness produced by its large windows. A separate pantry is off the kitchen's right corner, to the right of the living room entrance. The house's original staircase, now the back staircase, rises from between the doors to the living room and bedroom.

The large back yard is perfect for a chair and table set, lounge chairs and barbeque. A grove of trees behind the house is suitable for hanging one or several hammocks. There is a 50x50 paved area for use as basketball court or play area, which has a spectacular view of Bobcat Mountain, the highest elevation in the county. The large dry level yard above the house is perfect for playing catch or hitting golf balls. Below the house is a swim pond.
