Foster Farm is the best in country living with broad views of the rolling meadows and mountains, just outside Weston village. The completely renovated 5-bedroom residence is a c1804 farmhouse with exceptional finishes, clean classic lines, open floor plan and in turn-key condition. The attached c1840 barn has a cathedral ceiling spanning the kitchen and a great room with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. The living room also with a cathedral ceiling, has views over the valley and is centered by a brick fireplace. The outdoor gathering area for friends and family is a screened house perfect for dining, on a large stone terrace that connects a sauna hut and hot tub with Vermont views (cows) over the meadows. The Bank barn, built in 2007 for antique cars, includes a 3-bay garage that can store 8 cars and is outfitted with a car lift, heated shop with a 4th bay access, and on the lower level a well-appointed 4-stall stable with a center aisle that opens to the pastures. The most unique feature is the 48’ engineered cement silo with a professional astronomical observatory dome (the professional world class half meter fully robotic telescope, operable from anywhere with internet access, is sold separately). A solar array powers the property. Foster Farm is located just 1 mile from the Weston Playhouse and Village, 12 miles to Okemo and Bromley, and 20 miles to Manchester.
