This classic, VT homestead has a peaceful, private 12 acres with a fabulous view, a pond, stone walls, ancient maples, open fields, frontage on both sides of the quiet road and terrific buildings. The 1790 colonial has wide floors, paneled doors with old hardware, transoms, vertical, hand planed walls, a very early corner cupboard, exposed beams, formal post covers and the original staircase. The field stone fireplace is the center of the 29 ft, former keeping room. There's a bedroom with fireplace insert and full bath on the main floor and a shower bath and 3 bedrooms upstairs, including a 29 ft master. Off the huge, kitchen with wood cook stove, there's a workshop. Formerly a girl's camp, the property has bunk cabins and a sensational stone cottage with fireplace, bath and kitchen. Numerous upgrades including a propane backup generation system have been made over the years. Some updates are needed but the setting and antique home make this a property to keep for generations. There will be a $5,000 credit from the seller to the buyer at closing for any upgrades or improvements.
