One of most historically significant homes in Vermont, here is your chance to own a magnificent piece of VT History. This stunningly beautiful and meticulously updated and maintained Federal Style home built in 1797 by Thomas Chittenden, the first Governor of VT, for his son Martin who later became our 8th Governor. 

This home has seen numerous updates and improvements over the more than 2 centuries that it has stood with perhaps the greatest improvements having been by its current owners. The passion they have showered on this very special home is evident the moment you turn into the driveway. 

The exceptional features are too many to contain in this space, but a few of them are gleaming wide plank flooring, spacious bright airy rooms, numerous fireplaces, brand new updated kitchen, attached screen porch, outbuildings, gardens, remarkable diamond pattern brickwork, six plus bedrooms, seven bathrooms and more. 

Perhaps the most special feature is the historic over-the-mantle wall painting of the “First Seal of Vermont”, a stunning bit of Americana. The surrounding land has been protected by the VT Land Trust and will remain pasture/farmland forever. Be sure to check out the supporting documents regarding the historical significance of this home as well as the numerous modern improvements. Home was featured in national publication - "Old House Journal" in October of 2019.
