Property description

This contemporary 5 bedroom house is situated on 80 rolling acres of woods and fields only 2 1/2 miles from Woodstock village. The hillside location provides expansive views across the valley as well as west to the Bridgewater hills. The sunsets are magnificent sitting on the expansive second floor deck. A brook runs through the property feeding a gorgeous, natural pond below the house.

The house sits back from a quiet town road in South Pomfret, just over the Woodstock line. It is situated in the middle of a gently sloping 5 acre field, affording expansive views. With 5 bedrooms and 2 baths, the house sleeps 7-8 people. An open living/dining/kitchen area is on the second floor and opens out onto an expansive wrap-around deck surrounding the house on three sides with four operable sliding doors for easy access. The sloped living room ceiling climbs up to 11' on the window line offering expansive views and plenty of natural light. Two bedrooms and a bath are upstairs while the other three bedrooms and second bath are on the first floor. There are living rooms on both floors. There are both upstairs and downstairs master bedrooms with queen beds (one with its own sink). The second upstairs bedroom has a cozy double bed. The two other downstairs bedrooms are: 1) two twin beds and 2) a double bunk room with four beds located in a wing of the house. All beds have new mattresses and the house was just renovated. The upstairs living/dining/kitchen area has dramatic floor-to-ceiling glass show casing the spectacular views and scenery.The living room features a large central fireplace and mini-fridge bar area with several sitting areas and a large screen TV. The downstairs living room has a wood stove and dart board. There is a sauna for 4 people off the downstairs bath and the carport can accommodate two vehicles.

The upstairs bath has a bath/shower combination and was recently upgraded. The downstairs bath has a new glass shower, tile floor, stone counter and an attached sauna.

The kitchen is fully furnished with refrigerator, stove (electric), dishwasher and disposal. Appliances include microwave, toaster oven and two coffee makers. The teak dining room table expands to accommodate 10 people and is located directly in front of sliding glass doors that take advantage of the sweeping western views and sunsets.

There is a new wooden dock at the edge of the pond for sitting or swimming. There is some sand at this end of the pond for comfortable footing while swimming. The pond is 12 feet deep in the middle and is stream-fed with an overflow pipe for a consistent year-round levels.The property climbs up to the top of the adjoining hillside with woods trails running through out for lovely hiking. The nearby dirt roads encourage wonderful hiking or biking and there are many hiking trails nearby.

The brand new wrap around, Azek second floor deck provides a stunning setting for enjoying the tranquility and scenery in the valley-day or night. With its height above the fields, there are minimal insects and pleasant cool breezes.

The property works wonderfully for those seeking serenity or an active base of operations for a multitude of year-around sports in the area.

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.


Owner info

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!
