5 BEDROOM MAIN HOUSE - 2 BEDROOM SCHOOL HOUSE - CRAFTSMAN WORKSHOP & BARN - TREEHOUSE

 

Historic and time-withstanding building styles, sprawling lawn spaces & pastures, extensive outdoor entertainment, an expansive barn & craftsman woodshop, and a truly unique treehouse set the stage for this Vermont estate.  An 1818 brick cape integrated and expanded with a period friendly addition.  The brick cape offers a large eat in kitchen with long range views down the Connecticut River, an expanded large ensuite bedroom, and traditional dining & family gathering spaces.  The addition is dressed in cedar shake shingles adorning the outside, a large family gathering room, a luxurious expansive primary bedroom, and completed with an apartment above the garage below. The 1900’s, two bedroom schoolhouse has been expanded and renovated and has all the charm of a quintessential Vermont guest house. A large multiuse barn, woodshop, mutli-bay garage building is situated across from the main house and is ripe with opportunity. The outdoor spaces are appointed with extensive gardens, a clay tennis court surrounded by flower beds, an outdoor living room complete with an inground fire pit that is surrounded with perennial gardens and replete with a Colonial Williamsburg garden shed.  The water’s edge boasts a deck nestled in the woods and completed with a large dock and gangway to your boat.

A unique and one-of-a-kind, “Hathorn Acorn,” treehouse is perched high up between a Red Oak and an old growth Maple.  The treehouse, inspired by the acorns that lay below, was conceived, designed, and built by the current owner.   Built on a 84/1 scale and complete with a sleeping/sitting area, and an “acorn” room, this functional treehouse is ready for your next cool summer night.  This multigenerational estate that prominently presents southern views down the river, groomed meadows, and outdoor living is set for visionary expansion, reimagining of this estate, and is is primed for its successors.
