Covered bridges dot Vermont’s countryside, and this contemporary country house has it’s very own version on site. With a rare midcentury design, the 7.7-acre property includes a main residence, guest house, detached garage, and a large pond with a wooden footbridge. Designed by architect Carl Koch and nicknamed Marble Mill House, the head-turner was featured in Architectural Record, Vermont Life, and F. W. Dodge’s A Treasury of Contemporary Houses. According to the listing, the four-bedroom main residence was recently updated and enlarged, to include two great rooms, floor-to-ceiling windows, a cherry kitchen with stone countertops, and a large sunroom and deck. An angled stone fireplace is the focal point of the living and dining area, and views of the landscape are hard to replicate. The guest house, also painted in a rustic brick red, has two bedrooms and its own kitchen. Stone walls add to the natural setting, and a dam provides a pond-side swimming area.
