Our Craftsman home, the adjacent dairy barn, and dairy plant building were placed on the National Registry of Historic Structures in 2013. Our 14 acre property was a part of the original Humphreys' Dairy Farm that opened in the early 1900's. The dairy farm was owned and operated by four generations of the Humphreys' family until it closed in 2007. We feel very fortunate that we were able to acquire such a historically significant property from the original family!
The home was originally built and occupied by Mr. Humphreys, the founder, and other family members.
As you enter the home from the expansive front porch, you enter a large foyer. On either side of the foyer are parlors with fireplaces. An attached bathroom has been added to one of the parlors so it can also be used as the sixth bedroom. This room has a day bed with trundle, along with a sofa and other seating.
Behind the foyer is the large dining room with the original furniture, on loan from the Humphreys' family. The dining room has a wall of windows that look out to the cheerful sun porch.
Adjacent to the dining room is the kitchen. The original kitchen has been totally updated and expanded. During the renovation, a brick fireplace was discovered in an interior wall. It is now a focal point in the kitchen. The kitchen table was made by the Humphreys from trees cut on the dairy property.
Also downstairs is the original master bedroom. This bedroom has a king size bed. The adjacent bathroom has been updated, including a jetted tub.
During the course of time, the upstairs was converted to four apartments for workers to live in. Each apartment had its own kitchen. All four apartments shared 1 bathroom! We have removed the kitchens and replaced them with updated bathrooms, so each bedroom now has a bathroom. One bedroom has a king bed. The other three have queen beds.
