Description:

Originally a pre-revolutionary tavern, Green Valley Farm has undergone two major renovations and expansions with the current owners under the direction of architect Bob Bennett and renowned New England decorator Ruth Stevens. Together they have created a historic and gracious country house where the original 1760 structure and the new spaces blend imperceptibly.
