This historic pre-Revolution Cape overlooking Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks is a diamond in the rough that awaits a new family and the next chapter in its storied life. Registered with the Preservation Trust of Vermont, this antique home is topped with a slate roof, flanked by a gunstock-construction dairy barn, and fronted by an herb garden. At the back of the house, cross the flagstone patio with its westerly views and enter the mudroom, also accessible from the attached two-car garage. Make your way into the living room with a west-facing picture window, fireplace, and wood floors with hand-forged nails, and then into the kitchen, part of the original structure that boasts exposed timber-frame beams and a cathedral ceiling. Several of the rooms downstairs have hand-planed paneling, including the dining room, which has flat panel doors, built-in cupboards, a central door to outside, and a hearth and woodstove. In the parlor you will find more exposed beams, wide-pine floors, and built-ins. Three bedrooms are found upstairs, as well a second full bathroom, and a large room that could be used as a study, which opens into a large storage room over the garage. A front porch, red maples, and gently sloping land towards the lake give this home privacy and the sense you've stepped back in time. The location of the home and its potential for full restoration are compelling for the buyer seeking an authentic Colonial dwelling.
