The timeless appeal and the features typical of a traditional Vermont farm house combine comfortably with an open floor plan. A living space that has easily accommodated large family gatherings and yet is comfortable and practical when the owner couple is home relaxing by themselves.

A detached 23x20 workshop/barn/studio provides work area for a professional craftsman. The 5 acres feature both open and wooded land. The views across the extensive lawns are long range! A classic Vermont home that is equally suited for use as a year round residence or as a wonderful vacation retreat!

This incomparable ten-acre parcel - composed of lawns, perennial gardens, a meadow and an extraordinary white birch grove - has not been listed for sale to the public since it was purchased out of the Pomfret hill farms almost half a century ago.
