This Victorian era home has a stately presence atop the hill on Cider Mill Road. Commanding views to the east incorporate meadows, woods, the Green Mountains and the Middlebury College campus, while there are fabulous sunsets to the west over the Adirondack Mountains. Most every detail of this home speaks to its historic past. The slate roof, italianate brackets, pillars on the covered porch and two floor to ceiling 4-window bays accent the exterior. While inside, the kitchen-dining room built-in pass through, pocket doors, period woodwork and original hardware all add to the classic character. The smaller portion of the home has been renovated to offer a modern kitchen, energy efficient windows, radiant heating, a master bathroom with Victorian soaking tub and a 1/2 bath / powder room off the kitchen, as well as a loft and offices. The house feels as if you're stepping back in time yet has the modern conveniences homeowners appreciate. In the 1800's the property was known as the Glen Dale Stock Farm. The farm achieved prominence in the second half of the 19th century as one of the nation's top breeding sites for merino sheep. The four historic barns comprise more than 7000 square feet of floor area and include an English barn, sheep barn, two story breeding barn and two story carriage barn. Barn cupola's have been restored to their original condition and it is a an exceptional experience to climb the stairs to even more spectacular views. See additional information.
