Ever dream of running away from it all and living on a Vermont farm? We have, too. That’s why we’re drawn to Point of View Farm, a 196-acre oasis about an hour east of Montpelier. The former dairy farm features a custom-built main home with high ceilings, exposed beams, and hardwood and stone floors.
The farmhouse style may not appeal to all sensibilities, but it fits right in with its rural surroundings. The kitchen boasts soapstone counters and custom cabinetry, while oversized windows and abundant millwork show attention to detail. The main house also has an attached heated workshop, office, and garage area that has been used for woodworking projects.
A short drive from the main farmhouse is the historic four-bedroom homestead that was constructed in 1850. Now used as the property’s guesthouse, the renovated home offers a bunk room and a covered porch with views to the mountains of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. Next to the homestead is a large historic dairy barn with a separate seven bay equipment shed.
Throw in the gorgeous meadows, vegetable gardens, and a spring fed pond for swimming, and we might never leave. Point of View Farm is on the market now for $1,475,000.
