The interior of the main residence is dramatic - enter through the 700-year-old front door, descend the wide, sweeping staircase to the main living space with wonderfully high ceilings atop an open floor plan with multiple gathering areas, with distinct dining and home-office areas.

Easy proximity to Stowe, Smuggs, and Jay Peak ski resorts. Furnishings are negotiable.
