This iconic c1825 Greek Revival brick residence is sited on 26+/- acres in a bucolic country setting surrounded by protected farmland and excellent Green Mountain views, just three miles from Middlebury College.
The residence is warm and inviting combining classic features such as brick fireplaces, high ceilings and large windows, with the casual comfort of an updated layout
The open floor plan encompass the kitchen, sunroom, den and screened porch, and has a nice flow for gatherings of family and friends
Five bedrooms and five bathrooms include a 1st floor guest bedroom and a 2nd floor master suite.
The landscape transitions from a patio garden to a broad lawn down to a large swimming/skating pond, magnificent oak and maple trees and hidden meadows.
The post & beam barn was originally designed with first floor offices to look like a stable, which made it easy for the current owner to convert it for horses. Above is a spacious 1-bedroom apartment.
Solar panels provide a portion of the electric and domestic hot water.
Middlebury and Middlebury College provide an endless array of recreational and cultural opportunities: Alpine and Nordic skiing, the 15 mile Trail Around Middlebury that runs right by the property, and performing arts at the Town Hall Theater and College
