When Joshua Hulett, Jr. built this home c1817 he did so with pride and skill and made a fine choice of this gorgeous, private site with inspiring views. As he built this home, almost 200 years ago, he enjoyed the gorgeous views out over his father's c1793 farm just down the road. Today that same view remains, unchanged, over his father's farm which is protected by Vermont Land Trust Covenants. Presently, the (Joshua Hulett) farm is known as Christmas Tree Farm and is also referred to as the Old Kelley Farm as it was owned by the Kelley family for +/-150 years (5 generations!).
The farm is comprised of the 3,300sf exquisite 4 bedroom, 2 bath center hall colonial and many of the original outbuildings. These include a 2 story horse barn (44x30), a second 2 story barn – 1+ car garage/carpenter's shop/wood shed (22x40), a charming 2 story garden shed with wainscoting and 2 other small buildings. The acreage (+/-32 surveyed acres) is beautiful – a pristine spring-fed pond, hillside pasture, flat and rolling meadowland and a mixture of woods. The marble terrace and 21x8 porch are perfect to sit and enjoy the beautifully landscaped yard, total privacy along the quiet town gravel road and the magnificent protected south and westerly views.
The beautifully preserved and restored home has 4 marble fireplaces, gorgeous wide board floors, original doors/hardware/built-ins and high ceilings... The large country kitchen (18x25) with Garland stove and the original pressed tin ceiling has a wonderful sitting area with exposed beams, woodstove and lots of windows to take in the sun and distant views. A great living/entertaining home with library, formal dining room, 2 front parlors and of course the grand (9x22) center hall.
After 20 years of proud and loving ownership, the current owner has decided to give someone else the rights to this special and historic fine representation of early Americana. So if you seek privacy, views, quality acreage (ideal for horses, etc.), a wonderful collection of barns/outbuildings and a gorgeous authentic colonial home – this is Vermont at its best.
