Another Bloomfield Farmhouse



This farmhouse in northern Bloomfield has a typical New England form, although the stone surface is quite unusual for central Connecticut.   It is a pretty nice example.  The sign on the side reads "Zelah Case 1835."  The photo is from November 2012.

The stonework is amazing. I'd love to see it up close and be able to move my hands over the stones. Beautiful!

Magnificent. Stone houses have always felt regal and a bit mysterious to me.

Have a wonderful day Jack!

Gosh, now this is what I call a decent farmhouse Jack! This one looks like it'll be around for quite a while. Love the white shutters, bet it's gorgeous inside.

What a farmhouse! I love that stonework - I wonder where the stones came from? It really takes me back to New England, lovely capture.

The stones are magnificent. It reminds me a bit of Québec. Such a beautiful house!

I would move in there tomorrow, given half a chance. The symmetry v the crazy stones is most beguiling.

Love that stone but it doesn't look like a farmhouse to me. Of course I grew up partly in Minnesota where real farmhouses were white or red and made of wood!
