This Vermont estate is the rustic retreat of your dreams, thanks to an artful collage of worn wood: Salvaged barn board walls, reclaimed pine flooring, and hand-hewn timbers exposed along the cathedral ceilings.
To any kids living — and perhaps homeschooling — on the premises, the treehouse-esque interior is sure to make doing homework that much more enjoyable. As for gym class? The indoor pool, housed in a 40-by-60-foot solarium, could easily belong in a waterpark, complete with faux and real rock and tree accents, waterfalls, and underwater lighting. The 150-acre yard offers ample room to run around and play, too. There are multiple porches, five ponds, miles of carriage roads and natural trails, paddocks and barn space for 20 horses, and an indoor riding arena, and three guest houses, including a modernist cabin perched above the edge of Ewell Pond.
It’s not only the kids who will feel at home, though. From the mahogany entry and cedar walk-in closets to the French doors and marble countertops, the aesthetic may be rustic but it’s also refined. In bathrooms and kitchens throughout the property, hand-painted ceramic tiles bring in a Spanish farmhouse appeal, for instance, and modern glass globe light fixtures illuminate rooms alongside antique pendant lights. It’s hard to say what the most popular spot would be, but settling in front of the double-sided fireplace, gathering in the completely skylit dining room, or hunkering down in the reading nook all sound particularly appealing. Though beauty is in the eyes of the beholder—and, at least right now, seen through the lens of a pandemic—the best part may be all of the space to roam around, on horseback or on foot, without ever even leaving the property.
