Location: Weston, Vermont
This charming colonial home in Weston, Vermont, combines the best of both worlds. Retaining much of its historic architecture, it also seamlessly integrates modern updates to create a space filled with light and wonderful original details.
What’s more, the 1834-built house sits on 63 acres of sylvan land characterized by expansive meadows, mountain views, a stream, stone walls, a pond with waterfall, and so much more.
But back to the residence. Six bedrooms, four bathrooms, and multiple living areas unfurl across 3,218 square feet, which includes a guest house addition on the other side of the structure giving the illusion of two homes in one.
Beautifully restored wide-plank hardwood floors (painted in some areas) are found throughout the home, beginning in the formal dining to the huge kitchen with yellow walls, green cabinets, and state-of-the-art appliances to the many bedrooms upstairs. Exposed beams pop up here and there, as do other period woodwork elements, all accented by a bright and varied color scheme.
Rounding out this incredible property are a tool shed and tractor barn, all found at 1433 Route 100—for $940,000.
