A circa 1734 Cape, displaying authentic detailing of museum quality, in a setting worthy of a Vermont Life Magazine cover! From a New Hampshire location this Cape was patiently dismantled, with components meticulously cataloged, and then relocated to an idyllic Vermont hilltop setting! The interior reconstructed with attention to original design will please the most discriminating early New England architecture connoisseur! Authentic post and beam construction, gunstock corner posts, exposed beams, wooden ceilings, extraordinary wide board floors, 4 brick fireplaces, wide board sheathing and hand planed surfaces are revealed throughout! The advantage of contemporary mechanical systems, with full size cement basement and whole house backup generator are unobtrusive nods to present day conveniences! While this classic Cape features traditional format of family-oriented rooms and kitchen on the ground floor, with bedrooms above, the owners have tastefully created a privately sited ground level primary bedroom suite to accommodate often sought practicality of a large ground level bedroom, through constructing a 3ft'x20ft wing onto the residence. With vaulted ceiling and dramatic windows framing views of the pond and distant hills, this bedroom easily becomes a favorite room! Completing the expansive 154-acre estate is a private guest cottage with 4 bay garage below, a large swimming pond, equipment storage barn and extensive trails. An authentic Cape without antique home worries!
