This wonderful home, constructed in the traditional plank wall style of the early 1800's was built from the timbers harvested on its land. It operated as a farm for over one hundred years. In the 1960's it was purchased as a vacation home then became a year round private residence from the 1980's until 2009. It then remained vacant, falling into disrepair.

The house has now been restored without losing its simple charm. Warm and cozy, quiet and secluded, yet quite accessible. Wonderful sunrises, beautiful star-studded night skies. Many year round recreation opportunities available in the area.Keyword: Hill Farmsted Brewery,Jasper Hill cheese, Caspian Lake, Willey's Store, Circus Smirkus, Hazendale Farm Stand, Local food, beef,pork,chicken,vegetables, farmers market,cross country skiing, Jay Peak,Burke Mountain, Stowe,Craftsbury Outdoor Center,Barr Hill Nature Conservancy, Long Pond, fishing, kayaking,canoeing.

Car: Recommended

Greensboro is centrally located to many major towns. Our village offers a well stocked library which hosts a children's story time in the winter and many activities in the summer. Our small town boasts summer theater, concerts, a lecture series, and the wonderful 'Funky Fourth' of July parade and festival. A local brewery is a mile up the road from the Baker Hill House. Caspian Lake beach is a little over a mile down the road offing a boat launch, swimming and picnicking, Willeys Store, a well known century-old country store located near the beach, has anything you may need. A fine local artisan craft store is open during the summer across from the store. Many local craftspeople in the area open their studios to the public. Check out the Greensboro Historical Society's exhibits next to Willeys.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We were introduced to Greensboro in 1967 by Tim's fraternity house mother at U.V.M. We spent many wonderful weekends during our college years swimming in the lake, hiking, and exploring the area. When it came time to 'settle down', Greensboro presented an opportunity. We moved to the area in 1971, started the Greensboro Garage in the village, and in 1972 bought our first home where we still live three miles up the road. Living in a small rural town, raising our two children, provided multiple opportunities to give back to the community . Tim has been the town moderator for over 30 years and on numerous community boards and committees. He is an active EMT volunteer on the local rescue squad. Bobbie, a registered nurse, has volunteered as a member of many local boards, created the Senior Trotter Program to provide cultural and fun activities for seniors in our area. We both enjoy gardening, sailing, and touring on our Harley Davidson motorcycles during the summer. During the winter, we can be found skiing the cross country trails in town, when not hunkered down by the wood stove. The creative process of restoring and landscaping our current home has been a labor of love we have really enjoyed for over 40 years.

Why the Owner Chose Greensboro, VT, USA:
The Baker Hill House is a house we have passed on our way home for over 40 years. When it became vacant and we could see it falling into disrepair, we took a look and fell in love with it. It was a diamond in the rough and truly needed loving care to bring it into the 21st century while keeping it's simple charm. Here was a way we could share our wonderful town, it's incredible beauty, and it's offerings with others. Baker Hill House has evolved from a full working farm house early in the 19th century to a summer residence in the 1960's, to a family residence in the 80's & 90's. It is now on a path to welcoming travelers and providing them a place to rest, restore, and drink in the beauty of the area.
