Property description

Now the new home of Green Mtn. Falconry! Once the country estate and studio of famed painter and fly fishing enthusiast Ogden Pleissner, Boorn Brook Farm has been restored to its original splendor. Situated on 54 acres of open meadows and old apple orchards with stunning views, Boorn Brook Farm is protected by Lye Brook National Forest, yet within the town limits of Manchester Center.
The French inspired barn, built in 1820 has wide-plank floors, hand-hewn beams, soaring ceilings, stone fireplaces and New England charm. Perfect for a romantic getaway, a country vacation for a small family or a quiet retreat to nature, Boorn Brook Farm is the quintessential Vermont experience!
In the summer, take falconry lessons on site, swim in the spring-fed pond with a beach, play tennis on the private court, hike on the private trails or in the bordering Lye Brook Wilderness, fish in the brook, or simply relax in one of the hammocks. In the winter, skate on the pond, sled on the hill, snowshoe or cross country ski on the back trails, downhill ski or snowboard at nearby Stratton or Bromley Mountains. Return home to build a roaring fire in the stone fireplace, bake some bread in the stone bread oven, play a game of pool, sip some hot chocolate and then watch the sun set behind Equinox Mountain from the hot tub, right outside your master bedroom!
Children and adults alike will also enjoy our farm pets, Lola the Brown Swiss Cow, old Ender the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog and our new adorable goats, Pan and Axle!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I own the local movie theatre, so your movies are free when you stay on the farm!

Why the Owner Chose Manchester Center, Manchester, VT, USA:
Because once you get here, you won't want to leave! I wrote down our fantasy list of features I wanted in a property and was stunned to find it all! I wanted a white house with a porch, a red barn, mountain views, meadows, a pond, a brook, sledding hill, stone walls, hiking trails, close to skiing...and all of it in town! Living here is like living in a postcard!

The Unique Benefits at this Barn:
Boorn Brook Farm is very secluded, yet right in Manchester. This is also my home. I cater to couples and small families. No large groups - don't even ask! I strive to provide a relaxing, peaceful and homey retreat for all of my guests!
