Extremely rare offering. Barnswallow Farm consists of a fabulous 5 bedroom 1850s farmhouse with updated kitchen, bathrooms, and wiring; a new 2 bedroom, 2 bath guest cottage; and a 28'x73' barn. Privately situated on 265 idyllic acres. There are exceptional long range mountain views, rolling pasture and colorful perennial gardens. The sprawling old farmhouse, with generous rooms and 3 fireplaces, retains all of its original charm while providing the comforts of a modern home. Masterfully constructed in 2009, the guest cottage boasts custom maple inset cabinetry, granite counters and stainless appliances. Views of Ascutney can be enjoyed from the covered porches of both homes. It is rare to find such expansive acreage-a simply SPECTACULAR mix of pasture and woodlands with walking/snowshoeing trails throughout. Perfect for the equestrian or anyone who wants a little piece of heaven.
In many ways, Vermont is the getaway state. As one of the country’s least populated, it’s the place to get away from traffic, congestion, noise and even visual assaults. You won’t find a billboard on its highways. They’ve been banned since 1968. In getting away from it all, however, folks find much that draws them in. Covered bridges, crisp air, 300,0000 acres of state-own forestland, towns with a Saturday Evening Post kind of patina and, of course, maple syrup.Read more about luxury homes in Vermont
