Long a beloved feature of Buckland, the iconic “Lightening Splitter” is on the market for the first time since 1983! The house has 5 bedrooms (one has a passthrough to an additional room that can’t be counted as a bedroom, but could be a great nursery, office, or study), 2 full baths, great room, dining room, and living room. There are also options for a first-floor bedroom. So many closets! Also has large 3-season porch, cement patio, and detached 2 car garage with shop, all on 3/4 acre. Wood floors throughout. This beloved landmark needs some serious TLC and is being sold as-is by the estate. You can do a complete gut to bring it back to its former glory, or live in it and make it yours little by little. Nestled in the picturesque hills of Franklin County between upper Buckland and Shelburne Falls.
