House Lust: A Picture-Perfect Farmhouse with Four Outbuildings

Artists, homesteaders and hosts will appreciate this bucolic Westerly property.

The gable-roofed cottage with farmer’s porch, built in 1760, could stand all on its own. It looks great for its age and many period details — think: simple Colonial trim, wide-plank flooring and massive fireplaces — mingle with updates in key places like the kitchen. The pristine 1,400-square-foot barn is the icing on the cake. And the workshop and two other outbuildings over one-and-a-half acres? Bucolic nirvana.

Future buyers, the pressure is on: You have to do something great here. This property, near the Connecticut border in Westerly, isn’t just a place to lay your head. It’s a place to imagine, to create, to thrive, to achieve something. To really live in your corner of the world.

Whether you’re an artist, an aspiring homesteader or a host envisioning weekend-long bashes with outbuilding accommodations, here’s your House Lust:
