Reading Vermont Real Estate

The present owners have cultivated fruit trees, berry bushes and vegetable gardens. Conveniently located 15 minutes from South Woodstock, this property is located in an area that was once populated by ancient hill farms as evidenced by the old cellar holes and stone walls. The ancient roadways still offer miles of hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and mountain biking. The residence was originally built in 1984 and has been expanded and added onto creating a very nicely flowing floor plan. The living room with it's soaring stone chimney and elevated ceiling creates a very rustic warm feel. This is a property for the buyer who wants to experience Vermont at it's very best.
