Calling all snow lovers! An 1850 farmhouse known as the Fitch Homestead is on the market in Dover, home of the famous Mount Snow ski resort in southern Vermont. Measuring 2,400 square feet, the recently renovated residence combines period details with contemporary updates to create a rustic getaway that boasts all the creature comforts.
The wood-framed colonial sits on over 10 acres with views toward the slopes and features lovely elements of antiquity including wide-plank floorboards, millwork trimmed in traditional colors, wainscoting, raised panel doors, and more throughout. A spacious living room surrounded by windows is anchored by a fireplace, then a formal dining room with gorgeous doors and trim work flows into a large (updated) eat-in kitchen.
As for bedrooms there are five, with two and half baths and a family room—converted from an attached shed—with exposed beams and a wood-burning stove rounding out the space. The property also boasts a post-and-beam bar with concrete floor for workshop or garage use and second-floor storage. Located at 1 Negus Road and ideally situated as a home-base for all your snow sports needs, it’s offered at $675,000.
