This charming 254-year-old farmhouse is the perfect mix of past and present

The old ways of farming have long fallen out of fashion in this area, but the Clarence Bouton Homestead, originally built in 1763, shines as a beacon of the past — with all the delights of the present.

"The home has tons of detail throughout," said listing agent Adam Hade of Houlihan Lawrence. "It's very cozy and is the best of both worlds, because you have larger elements of a modern home and great small spaces."

Perhaps the home's most impressive room is the elegant study, with mahogany built-in shelving throughout, wood flooring and French doors.

The one-acre setting creates privacy, as "the home is tucked down a very windy county road — one of the most picturesque roads in South Salem," Hade said.
