Teeming with history, this beautiful post and beam 19th century farmhouse strikes a balance between old Vermont charm and current-day comfort. Built in 1812 for the Austin family, this homestead was once the estate of the 115-acre farm on the road that bears its name. Turning onto Austin House Road you are greeted by green pastures and wildflower fields on all sides. Perched up on the hillside and above the winding Malletts Creek, you'll find the beauty that is The Austin House. Upon entering through the sidelight gilded front door you find yourself in the grand foyer with two great rooms on either side, the wide hallway leads directly to a spacious living area. Here you can find original exposed beams, a large living room & eat-in kitchen, and a wood-burning stove to keep the house cozy through Vermont winters. Additionally, a 1st floor bedroom/office boasts the utmost convenience for home life. The beautiful staircase to the second floor is tucked away, maximizing every square inch of living space on the first floor. The 2nd floor has four large bedrooms, bathroom with original claw foot tub, and an additional home office. The staircase continues to a large attic brimming with expansion possibilities. Each section of the house glows with natural light due to high ceilings, original pine floors, and large windows in every room. The covered porch leads to an attached barn/garage and was once the home of the family sheep. Lot is 3 acres surrounded by fields and meadows.
