This rustic modern farmhouse, ideally situated in the charming village of Grafton, is truly a rare find. The charm of the original house (c. 1860) is complemented by an addition completed in 2007. Old and new blend harmoniously into a home well-suited to a modern lifestyle. Posts and beams frame an open floor plan and kitchen with a Viking stove, soapstone counter top, and stainless appliances. A mudroom with exposed brick makes a welcoming entrance while 2 fireplaces and a Scan wood-stove add to an already cozy atmosphere. 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, split between the new and old sides, allow for privacy while easily accommodating guests. A covered front porch looks out over the Saxtons River-an ideal perch for morning coffee, bird watching or an afternoon nap. Sequestered in the back, is a patio with gardens, perfect for barbecues and larger gatherings. With its white clapboard houses, The Grafton Inn, MKT (a modern general store), library, blacksmith, 2 museums, galleries and more all close by, it doesn't get any more Vermont than Grafton. Tennis courts, maintained by the Grafton Inn, are across the street and the hills surrounding the village are full of recreational opportunities. Grafton Ponds offers cross-country skiing and hiking and biking trails in the summer while there are plenty of trails for those who like to venture beyond. 3 ski areas are within a 30-45 minute drive. Added all up, it's the perfect place for both gathering and for quiet retreats.
