Gentleman's brick home of 1810 with formal parlor on 134 acres. The scenery and the grounds are perfect for strolls around the pond or woods. The house is impeccably appointed with elegant, luxurious furnishings, beautiful paintings, cozy fireplaces and woodstoves. This home is for people who enjoy the finer things. Located in Central Vermont, within an hour from 3 major ski resorts and within 10-30 minutes from several fine restaurants and golf courses. Artist Retreats also available.
This 1810 brick is a formal house with a center hall and taller ceilings then most Vt capes. Upstairs there is a large bedroom with a queen bed and downstairs there is a library room with a twin bed that are being used as guests rooms. The library is full of books of a variety of topics, and has a writing desk, a chair and the twin bed. There is a large dining room that seats 12 with a very large early 19th century fireplace that also has a brick oven. The living room has a wood stove and a Steinway grand piano off of a small entertainment kitchen. Recently renovated is my new art studio which is available for private art lessons and artist retreats. For an additional fee, the art studio can be available, the use of which can be determined on a case by case basis.

Guests have access to all of the house. There is a lovely town road that goes through the center of the farm with stone walls for walks, and a 2 and 1/2 acre pond stocked with tons of bass. There is a patio and stone grill, as well as a gas grill. There's a basketball hoop in the large red barn for a pick me up game. Wildlife is abundant, and you might see a bear, wild turkeys, deer, mink, geese, ducks and even owls. You certainly might hear one!

I can be available or I can make myself scarce. It is fun to socialize with guests if everyone is in the mood! I look forward to meeting new people and making new friends. But if you are in need of quiet and solitude, that is fine too. Guest will be asked to share a bathroom with others in the house. In some cases, depending on the circumstances, a private bath can be arranged.

There's a fireplace insert in the parlor, which is very cozy. It is capable of heating the entire main house so I try to keep it going. In my world, there is nothing more lovely then the steady heat from a wood stove, especially if it is biting cold and snowy outside. If you are in the mood for a fire, the doors can be open to view the flames for a while. There are opportunities for cross country, skiing, snow shoeing, mountain biking, fishing, hiking..right outside the doorstep. The farm is only about three miles outside of the village of Randolph. Also, there are the possibilities of wedding sties and events.
