Farmhouse, Single Family - Sudbury, VT
Formerly known as the Abott and Howley Place, this home's original construction date is not certain but it is believed to be sometime in the late 1700's with additions following. What is certain is the fact that many original features still exist today and need someone to restore it back to it's former glory. How about a unique curved wall in the spot that was the original foyer with a curved door. Imagine the craftsmanship that was put into creating that! Two sets of original French Doors and hardware still look out over the westerly Adirondack views. There was a ballroom with a spring floor for dancing that has been partially removed but the material has been saved. The home has 10' ceilings and beautiful trim around each door. A curved banister at the top of the stairs, original light fixtures, maple floors, doors and windows are some of the architectural treasures of this home. In 1992 the owners moved a 200 year old post and beam barn from Orwell onto the site. It boasts four levels on a solid concrete foundation. This truly is a piece of Vermont history that deserves to be restored and saved. It was believed to be an Inn at one point in time and it is said carriages were driven under the house from one side to the other. Many construction materials will transfer with the property. In the age of home restoration shows and blogs, here's your chance to bring a historic home back to life. They don't build houses like this anymore.
