159 East Road, Cavendish, VT, 05142 | $1,500,000

A very rare type of property. A classic federal style farmhouse on a quiet country road sitting on 131 acres (both sides of the road) with sensational, "Sound of Music" views. Southern exposure fills the house with soothing, natural light. Lots of original features including 5 fireplaces, wide pumpkin pine floorboards and the interior doors. The house was tastefully renovated in the 1990's but the charm of 1860 remains. It's only about a 15-20 minute drive to Okemo and 1/2 hour to Killington. Cavendish center is only 5 minutes away and Ludlow another 10. While the house itself is really something, the land it sits on is SOMETHING ELSE! We don't see properties like this hit the market very often so if you're looking to get away from it all in a classic country property, this deserves a look!
