To use a hackneyed phrase, this is truly the quintessential small Vermont Farm. It has the pond, a wonderful hilltop location next to a major working farm, guest horses grazing in the front pasture, fabulous views of fields & mountains, and best of all, a magnificently-restored, 1850's homestead. Everything about this gracious, 4-bedroom house says come on in, be comfortable, safe and happy. Many of the original classic features have been retained, while thoughtful additions over the years have added space and luxurious appointments. The large formal living room allows fresh cross breezes with expansive windows on both sides, while the smaller den lends a cozy gathering space (both include handsome, wood burning fireplaces). The kitchen is beautifully equipped with upscale appliances, 3 dishwashers, 6 burner gas range, soapstone counters, custom cabinetry, pantry & wine cooler - dine formally or in the wonderful breakfast nook. The spacious, main floor master bedroom features radiant heat, wood floors, charming window seat, walk-in closet, and bathroom with jetted tub and separate shower. Other sleeping areas include a sizable bunk-room with bath on the main floor and 2 guest rooms on the second floor. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with natural perennial gardens, a large garage with new concrete floor, and a small barn that admittedly needs some TLC. Located at the end of a town maintained road (grading only), this is a must see property. Furnishings negotiable.
