High Style and Modern Amenities in An Incomparable Location

Located just over two miles east of Woodstock, Vermont in a well established area of substantial country estate properties, this elegant, architect-designed home offers the conveniences of single-level living and succeeds in bringing the beauty of the Vermont countryside and all of its seasons indoors.

An expansive entry foyer leads to a great room that combines an open concept kitchen and two dining/living areas.

The open floor plan offers dramatic spaces in which to entertain or relax.

The family wing includes three bedrooms, two baths and an enormous walk in master closet. A separate guest suite provides privacy and separation.

The large loft area off the entry foyer with gorgeous lawn and pond views lends itself perfectly to an in home office, play room or informal living room.

There are radiantly heated tile and old-growth, center-cut wide plank Eastern White Pine floors, a whole house air purification system and dramatically high ceilings throughout. The total square footage measures approximately 4900+/.

Originally built in 1971, the home’s sweeping lines speak to the design aesthetic of a well known local architect. The house underwent a comprehensive and stylish transformation with an emphasis on green materials and techniques in 2010.

A private drive ascends through manicured lawns and overlooks the property’s two spring fed ponds and the barn. The property extends along the riverbank with over 1300 feet of frontage. An in ground pool is on the west lawn.

The home site, set high on an open promontory with views west towards Woodstock village and Mount Tom, takes in the astounding natural beauty of the Pomfret hills and the verdant river valley below.

Often referred to as “the prettiest small town in America" Woodstock is well known for its combination of New England charm and worldly sophistication. Hanover, New Hampshire and the prestigious Ivy League Dartmouth College as well as the amenities of Quechee, Vermont are a short drive away.
