Bibliophiles, rejoice! Mark Twain’s family farmhouse, a property evoking timeless Americana with modern upgrades, is now on the market. The estate, purchased by the famed writer in 1909 for one of his daughters, is currently on the market for $1.85 million.

Located in Redding, Connecticut, on 18.7 acres, “Jean's Farm” — named for Twain’s youngest daughter — was originally built in 1787. Much of it, though, has been renovated for modern times by the current owners, who purchased the property in 2013.

According to the listing, the white farmhouse features a living room with Carlisle hickory signature floors, antique ceiling beams, a mudroom and new doors and windows. Bright and airy with plenty of natural sunlight beaming in from outside, the home has white walls and elegant, decorative features.

Although built in 1787, the home features modern flourishes thanks to renovations by its current owners.Virtual203null

The kitchen, which has been completely upgraded, is outfitted with Crema Marfil marble counters, custom cabinetry and Gaggenau premium appliances. A large butternut island counter provides workspace and seating, plus there’s a built-in banquette dining area perfect for a casual meal with family, friends or even a book club.

A finished attic makes a great playroom for the kids, and there’s also a full playroom and sports court on the property.

The barn, which was built in the 1860s, has been updated to include a full apartment. And if can't get enough of the creative vibes from this storied estate, there’s a separate art studio for your enjoyment.

On nice days, you can go outside and take in the sprawling estate, which is covered in lush green grass and gardens surrounding the house. A heated gunite pool is also on the property, just begging you to jump in.
