Completely renovated and expanded in 2004, this classic 4 bedroom c1799 center chimney cape on 12+/- acres, is an exceptional family-friendly retreat designed to celebrate the Vermont lifestyle inside and out. Period charm and authentic craftsmanship is consistently applied across a mix of open and intimate living areas creating a sense of space that is relaxed and comfortable throughout the house. A well-appointed country kitchen leads to all the great gathering spaces – large screened porch, brick patio and sunroom, overlooking 3 cascading ponds and spring fed stream. More intimate rooms with fireplaces provide a quiet place to read or work from home with the fiber optic internet access.
Library, study, guest bedroom w/bath, complete the first level with a master suite and sleeping porch overlooking the view, two additional bedroom suites and a study/media/family room completing the second. Plus there is an impeccable 3-car heated garage.
Additional outside features include two fenced pastures, a two-level bank barn equipped for animals, and a mature apple orchard. The surrounding area is defined by its lush open spaces, farming, conservation, maple hardwoods and star-lit nights. Upper Farm is the perfect escape, minutes from Silver Lake and the Barnard General Store.
