Old Fitch Farm is one of New England’s most extraordinary estates. This remarkable residence was ideally sited on a plateau looking over the Ottauquechee River to Woodstock Village.
The historic property was comprehensively restored and updated mindful of retaining the authentic character of the grand home, caretaker’s cottage, and elegant three-story horse barn reflecting Federal and Greek revival influences of architect Asher Benjamin.
The stately foyer in the main residence is defined by a splendid mahogany staircase rising three stories, a testament to the finest hand-wrought craftsmanship of the era. Classically formal gathering rooms with wood-burning fireplaces on the main level are spacious, elegant and superbly appointed. The soul of the house is the warm, well-designed kitchen filled with natural light illuminating Italian tumbled marble floors. Elements include Dutchmade cabinets, state of the art appliances, and an historic Butler’s pantry with meticulously joined quartersawn-oak cabinetry. The grand Master Suite offers sophisticated seclusion on the second floor discreetly distanced from common rooms and shared spaces. The private enclave is accessed from a cozy fireplaced den by a dedicated stairway or private elevator. The tranquil bedroom and office are graced by his and hers bathrooms accented by Vermont Verde and Italian marble tile adjacent to ample dressing rooms. Two luxurious guest suites are located east and west of the main stairway off the second floor landing, which turns and ascends to a third level with two additional guest rooms on opposite sides of an airy walkway. The heated three car garage connects to the home through a mudroom outfitted to accommodate clothes, boots and recreational implements to enjoy Vermont’s four seasons. Fifteen minutes to skiing. Two hours, fifteen minutes to Boston. Four and a half hours to NYC.
