Got dreams of moving to the sprawling green countryside? You’re in luck, because this Vermont home just oozes a rustic American charm that will whisk you back in time without leaving you devoid of modern amenities.

Originally built circa 1790, this 5,066-square-foot beauty was renovated and expanded in 1997 and currently sits on a 30-acre plot of land that looks out onto rolling tree-laden hills. With four bedrooms and four bathrooms, it’s perfect for a family that wants a little space to themselves—or for one person who wants a whole lot.

The home’s old-fashioned feel belies its contemporary offerings, which includes in-floor radiant heat and a sleek kitchen—both ready for use if you tire of the brick fireplace and brick-lined bake oven. Much of the interior is brightened by the exposed wood frame, including the cozy living room that features a wall of windows overlooking the bucolic landscape.

When you’re done soaking up the view, feel free to take a soak in the hot tub room located on the lower level, or maybe stroll on over to the barn which doubles as a garage and a potting shed. If you’re still feeling adventurous (and who wouldn’t be), take a stroll on one of the countless trails that snakes away from the home and through the woods.

The sprawling estate at 197 Reilly Road is on the market now and going for $800,000.
