Vermont has no shortage of picturesque gabled houses in the countryside, but the latest to cross our desk is a nine-bedroom, seven-bath version. Designed by American Rick Joy—an architect known for rammed earth houses—Woodstock Farm switches gears to explore the vernacular of the rural northeast.
The listing includes a 3,890-square-foot elongated shingle-and-stone house that sits angled next to a 5,625-square-foot cedar-shingle barn. The home won Architectural Record’s House of the Year title in 2010, and Joy compared the 152-foot-long structure to a loaf of bread. The stonewalled entrance, crafted from Lake Champlain bedrock, leads to an open living-dining area, followed by children’s bedrooms, and then the master bedroom suite.
Tall, open-span ceilings are supported by post-and-beam steel bents, and some interior windows wrap up over the roof to become long skylights that frame the views for the spaces within. Next door, the barn features a garage, storage, indoor-outdoor basketball court, and second-level guest quarters. Throw in the serene pond and the listing’s 200 acres and you have a gorgeous retreat perfect for getting away from it all. Interested? Woodstock Farm is on the market now for $9,750,000.
