Dreaming of owning an authentic but modern Vermont farmstead? Look no further than Duxbury Hill Farm. Featured in New Old House magazine and consisting of 350+/- acres of open pasture and woodlands, a c2007 historically accurate, energy efficient Greek Revival farmhouse with extraordinary mountain views, 2 antique restored English bay barns, a swimming pond, sugarhouse and a solar array, Duxbury Hill Farm checks all the boxes including fiber optic internet for working from home.

When the current owners found the old hill farm, it had totally reverted back to woodlands with all the old foundations and stonewalls still visible. Over the years, they lovingly restored the land back to a working farm while preserving those ancient relics. They also expertly managed the woodlands to create a recreational trail network that culminates at 1,000 feet with views over the Green Mountains to Mount Washington.

But the land, while very special, is only part of the story of Duxbury Hill Farm. The 5 bedroom, 3 bath, 3,756 sf authentic Greek Revival farmhouse is a 'new old house' and appears like its been on the property for a century. Sited to take advantage of the views of the Northfield Range, its authenticity lies in its careful and accurate design accomplished with the collaboration of local architect, Sandra Vitzthum and was created to give the impression the home was built in stages. The wood used for framing, flooring and cabinetry all came from the land, and the stone for masonry and countertops are all from Vermont quarries. The design of the energy efficient doors and windows, as well as their placement throughout the home, are all historically accurate.Typical of the vernacular, more elaborate moldings and features exist in the more formal rooms such as the dining room with fireplace and entry hall but blend easily with less formal spaces with simpler trim such as the sunken living room with fireplace, exposed hand hewn beams and reclaimed hemlock floor, crafted from an antique barn from another Vermont property. The large, bright kitchen with 9-foot ceiling, boxed beams and ash floor serves as the center of the house and all the rooms pinwheel off of that. Butternut and cherry cabinets surround the AGA stove and other work spaces across from the brick fireplace and dining area with built-in seating. Other spaces on the first level include a mudroom with a slate floor, den, office, 3/4 bath, craft room and screened porch. A breezeway connects the house to the 3-bay garage. The second level features wide-plank Eastern pine floors (also from the land), a master suite with Vermont marble counter top, walk-in closet, mountain views and private access via a back staircase. Four other bedrooms are off a central hallway with linen storage and another full bath. In all, an extraordinary property destined to be enjoyed for generations.

South Duxbury is just a few miles north of Waitsfield, home of Sugarbush Resort and Mad River Ski Area and just 9 miles from Waterbury, home of Prohibition Pig's Heady Topper and Hen of the Wood, a renowned restaurant. Stowe Mountain Resort is 26 miles north, Vermont's state capital, Montpelier, is 17 miles to the east and Burlington is 35 miles north. The property shares a border with Camel's Hump State Park lands.
