1787 Brick Federal Home

Set back on a 10-acre knoll, facing south, stands the Colonel Ephraim and Sarah Doolittle Farm. The Federal style, hip roof house was built in 1787 by Job Lane Howe, a local builder at the time. The current owners, professional restoration specialists by trade, purchased this historic home in 1998 and have lovingly restored & upgraded all systems to meet the needs of today's family while fulfilling their desire to farm the land side by side. 22 years later, with the family grown and retirement on the horizon, the property is being offered to its next steward. From the brick floored mudroom to the large kitchen with cooking fireplace & intact beehive oven, you will be thrown back to a time when life was slower & family traditions stood the test of time. All the main rooms on the first floor feature wide plank pine floors and period fireplaces with brick hearths, wood mantels & paneling. The grand center stairway leads to a library nook on the 2nd floor with a large Palladian window, overlooking the lawn & mature locust trees below. Another fireplace, flanked by double paneled doors to matching closets, graces the master bedroom. In addition, the property includes a lovely carriage barn that serves as the farm's Certified Organic produce store, as well as the original English barn, horse paddocks & sheep's barn. A newer heated garage & workshop has its own 2 bdr septic for a potential accessory apartment on the 2nd level. Truly, an exquisite vintage Vermont homestead!

• Gracious 4 bedroom 2 1/2 bath home
• Original pine floors, brick fireplaces
• Large heated wood shop and hobby garage
• Potential for auxiliary garage apartment
• Fenced horse paddocks
• Horse and livestock barns, chicken coop
