Find your escape at this idyllic Vermont country estate. Privately set at the end of a dirt road lined by sugar maples, surrounded by conserved farmland and perched on the river’s edge, this New England oasis is populated with extensive gardens, rolling pastures and meticulously groomed lawns, a clay tennis court, and an outdoor living room with an in-ground fire pit surrounded with perennial gardens, replete with a garden shed that can be used for planting organic vegetable gardens, an outdoor chicken coop, or even an outdoor entertainment cabin with built-in bar area. Placed around the 10-acre property are buildings for every need. The primary farmhouse residence offers a charming eat-in kitchen with views of the Connecticut River, traditional dining & family gathering spaces and three bedrooms upstairs. The addition is dressed in cedar shake shingles, and provides a spacious family gathering room for movie nights or shooting pool, a luxurious expansive primary bedroom, and a fifth bedroom over the garage that could be a perfect bunkroom or apartment. If you are having guests for a getaway stay or need overflow space for the family or an event, a two-bedroom schoolhouse has been expanded and renovated and has all the charm of a quintessential Vermont guest house. If you desire a workout space or yoga den, want to exercise your creative juices, need an office space to work from home, or are looking to have horses or farm animals, head over to the finished barn/workshop. And if you need a space to truly get away from it all, climb the winding staircase to a one-of-a-kind treehouse nestled under an old oak tree. A “come and never leave” multi-generational retreat to be enjoyed by all – morning coffee on the patio taking in the sunrise and long-range views down the river; a mid-morning tennis match, game of croquet, or golf swing practice with chipping, pitching and bunker shots; a dip in the river on a hot summer’s day or kayak/paddle board adventure; lunch on the deck perched in the woods by the water; doze off for an afternoon nap in the treehouse; pack the coolers and picnic baskets for a cocktail dinner cruise on the river; and end your evening sharing laughs around the firepit and roasting s’mores. Within 20 minutes of Dartmouth College and an easy destination spot from Boston and New York, this property is primed for its successors coming from near or far.
