This rustic Vermont home offers a taste of old America with the comforts of modern living.
Dating back to 1790, the 5,066 sq ft Londonderry property was refurbished in 1997 but its period features have been retained, including rustic beams, huge red-brick fireplaces and pillars.
The double-height Great Room has a cabin-like feel despite its size, thanks to the wooden floors and walls, and its timber-trussed ceiling. Large windows draw light into the heart of the country home – on the market for $799,000 via Sotheby’s International Realty – which has been modernised with underfloor radiant heating and new insulation.
A jacuzzi tub can be found on the lower level, off the two guest suites, while two more bedrooms are on the upper level.
The Vermont property sits in 30 acres of rolling hills, laced with woodland trails, and has large terraces for soaking up the views.
A skip across from the main house is a two-storey barn, which is currently used as a garage and potting shed.
