Wonderful vintage home in the quaint and charming village of Rochester. This 6-bedroom, turn-of-the-century home was lifted and moved from its original location next to the road onto a full modern foundation, set far back from the highway, providing spectacular views and nice level land for lawn, gardening or family gatherings. Lovingly restored with numerous updates including new windows, deck, exterior doors and roofing on the garage and porch, yet retaining all the charm of an historic home with period-specific features such as hardwood floors, exposed hand-hewn beams, traditional front parlor with sitting room and a wraparound covered porch to enjoy in the summer months. With the flip of a switch, two gas-fired woodstoves, including a beautiful Jotul Model 3, keep the home cozy and warm all winter long without the fuss and effort of burning wood. A large, well-designed kitchen opens to a bright and sunny dining room, making this an ideal home for entertaining. French doors from the dining and living area open to a spacious, sunny deck with mountain views, perfect for relaxing on a summer evening. The full walkout basement could be finished for additional living space or can serve as a workshop, gardening shed or storage area. You can walk to town from the convenient village location to enjoy cafes, restaurants, an art gallery, a bookshop, or concerts in the park. This classic home in the heart of the Green Mountains has something for everyone; schedule a showing today.
