Dorset, Vermont, 05251 $795,000
Maple Grove, circa 1858, built for the Choir Master Cheney of the Dorset Congregation, located privately in Dorset Village on 9 acres. The center hall newel post is significant to its intended sentiment. Unspoiled, the bones are fabulous... offering raised panels and oversized windows that light the rooms, original hardware, high ceilings, and wide plank flooring all in tact! The flow is easy and warmed by three fireplaces found in the formal dining, generous living room and family room with three walls of windows passively heating the slate flooring. While the eat-in kitchen is expansive it provides a lot of cabinetry, pantry, prep areas, and dining at the picture window overlooking the rear yard. There is a main level master bedroom with bath, laundry and office/ bedroom, full bath, and laundry room on the main level... Upstairs two more baths and 5 bedrooms. The rooms are graciously proportioned with lots of windows and separation yet open flowing for gathering family and friends. There's an attached garage for two... a side or deep front porch and patio. The converted barn created as the official "Pool House" is 30 X 24, has a bath and modified kitchen area. An in-ground private pool is carefully covered. This is a lovely estate quality setting approached from the long circular driveway that leads to the most ideal sunny site. Sit on the porches, listen to the village bells and enjoy all the village amenities steps away ... a very special offering not often found!
