Gentleman's brick home of 1810 with formal parlor on 134 acres. Large, old Maple's dot the scenery and the grounds are perfect for strolls around the pond or in the woods. The house is impeccably appointed with elegant, luxurious furnishings, beautiful hardwood floors and cozy fireplaces and woodstoves. This home is for people who enjoy the finer things. Located in Central Vermont, within an hour from 3 major ski resorts and within 15-30 minutes from several fine restaurants.
This 1810 brick is a fairly formal house with a center hall and taller ceilings then most Vt capes. Two large bedrooms are upstairs and one downstairs parlor is being used as a guest room as well. There is a large fireplace insert in the sitting room, which has a dining table which can be opened out to seat 8. The eat in kitchen table can open out to seat many more, but comfortably can accomodate another 6-8 people. The library is full of books of a variety of topics, and has a writing desk, a chair and a sofa. The kitchen is well appointed. There is a dining room which is offered for an extra fee. It has a very old 1802 large fireplace with a brick oven. The table can seat 12. The ell is where I go to be out of the way, and this room is in the ell. I can shut the door to it, or leave it as part of the house rental.
Accès des voyageurs
Guests have access to all of the main brick house, while I live in the "ell". There is a lovely town road that goes through the center of the farm with stone walls for walks, and a 2 and 1/2 acre pond stocked with trout. There is a patio and stone grill, as well as a gas grill. There's a basketball hoop in the large red barn for a pick me up game. Wildlife is abundant, and you might see a bear, wild turkeys, deer, mink, geese, ducks and even owls. You certainly might hear one!

I can be available or I can disappear into my end of the house. It is fun to socialize with guests if everyone is in the mood! I look forward to meeting new people and making new friends. But if you are in need of quiet and solitude, that is fine too.
There's a fireplace insert in the parlor, which is very cozy. It is capable of heating the entire main house so I try to keep it going. I will show you how to do this or I will do it for you, which means periodically, it will need to be fed more wood. In my world, there is nothing more lovely then the steady heat from a wood stove, especially if it is biting cold and snowy outside. If you are in the mood for a fire, the doors can be open to view the flames for a while.
