Details for 670 Bentley Hill Road, Manchester VT 05250

Located near the end of a country road on the lower slopes of Mt. Equinox within minutes of Manchester village. The c. 1800 house has an elegant simplicity that is pure Vermont. The light cast from the plaster walls adds warmth and dimension to the rooms, restrained mantels surround the fireplaces, local Danby marble is used for the original cooking fireplace hearth, the parlor and the fireplace in the dining room. The kitchen is a spacious hub, with abundant character, even a swing hung from a beam. Off the kitchen door are stone walls and plots filled with asparagus, herbs and flowers ready to be picked. Further back behind the barns is an enormous vegetable garden with a rhubarb patch and blueberry bushes. There are 6 bedrooms and a playroom on the third floor. The house has been carefully tended, with updated systems and amenities, with an eye to retaining the house’s authenticity. The 116-ac farm is made up of stone-walled pastures and fields suitable for animals and crops, apple trees, a woodlot, maple groves and a working 1880s sugarhouse. When the current owners arrived almost 60 years ago, the house had been just a summer place and it was overgrown and wild (hence the name). Their goal was to be self-sufficient, to grow their own food, and to slowly restore the farm and to raise their children. Now it is time to find the next steward of the land and to create new stories. Additional land may be available for sale. Showings begin on July 18th. No showings July 23-25.
