Woodstock, Vermont is often voted the most picturesque village in New England! Town is less than 3 miles from our house. Shopping is wonderful, there are many one of a kind boutiques. Simon Pearce glass blowing, store and restaurant is less than five miles away. Other restaurant options are fabulous too! The movie theater and library in Woodstock are terrific. Billings Farm and Museum is a gem! There are many hiking trails all around the area, and the road biking is exceptional starting right from our door! There is a good health clinic right in town, as well as a super market for groceries and the terrific West Woodstock Market for specialty and organic foods. Hanover, NH is a popular destination with the art museum at Dartmouth College and many more shops and restaurants to choose from.
Year Purchased: 1977
About the owner: My husband and I live in the Boston area. We raised our three, grown sons taking trips to Vermont often for both skiing adventures as well as spring and fall weekends. My husband bought this house in the late 1970's before we even met and I don't think he could have guessed how significant a purchase this was! Our family still chooses to gather for the Christmas holiday annually in South Pomfret. Our boys now live in Manhattan and in San Francisco, but it is our house in Vermont that brings us all back together!
Why the Owner Chose Pomfret, VT, USA:
The gorgeous views and the peaceful setting simply can not be beat! The house site is perfect for relaxing and also for taking off on many different athletic pursuits during any season of the year. The close proximity to Woodstock town (less than 3 miles) and the total serenity of the location combine to restore and rejuvenate almost overnight! The massive glass sliders in almost all the rooms allows ample sunlight and the western views and sunsets are superb! The open fields are refreshing and the hiking trails abundant. Our pond is a wonderful resource for swimming in the summer or skating in the winter months. Woodstock town has so much to offer from cultural activities to entertainment; the charm of New England is tangible in this idyllic village.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The open floor plan brings our family and friends together in a very relaxed and comfortable setting - on both the first and second floors. We love the concept of all being together in front of the fire, cooking in the kitchen or watching TV. Our furnishings are comfortable and low-key, the ceilings upstairs high, and the views stunning. Ours is a happy house!
