Sited on a very private 150 acres of gently rolling farmland, the attractive circa 1998 farmhouse combines a classic style exterior with an interior post & beam open floor plan and beautiful finishes reclaimed from historic homes. The expansive views of the Champlain Valley countryside and mountains make the farm seem even larger. At the center of the farmhouse is the warm and inviting great room with 9-foot ceilings, which includes the kitchen, living and dining area, and features wide pine floors, hand-hewn beams, and a large stone fireplace. There are 4 bedrooms on the 2nd floor including a master bedroom, and a design that provides the option of a 1st floor bedroom suite. The land features a trout/swimming pond, an extensive trail system for walking and skiing, a brook, and a clay tennis court. There is a private writing cabin with a wood stove on top of a wooded knoll, and a barn suited for a workshop and equipment storage. Ideally located 20 miles from Burlington and the International Airport, 18 miles from Middlebury, and 5 miles from Lake Champlain.
