Isn't everyone just looking for someplace quaint to hole up for the winter? You're in luck, as long as you're into Federal architecture, toile wallpaper, and a town populated with only 7,602 other souls. Welcome to St. Johnsbury, Vermont.
The Ephraim Paddock house, built in 1820 and situated on one acre in the center of town, is one of the most prominent homesteads in the village, which was founded in 1760. Federal-Style facade ornamentation includes a hipped roof, balustrades, and Palladian windows. The interior layout adapts well to a more modern mode of living: The ground floor comprises a front hall that leads to the music room, parlor, study and a small, formal dining room, and the house has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and two half-baths.
