5000 Route 106
The right dose of Vermont living: high meadows, mountain views, in the heart of horse country near Woodstock, end of the road, and complete privacy. Warner Hill Farm’s beginnings as a late 1700s sheep farm have been transformed into a comfortable, but distinguished property that has been on the cover of House Beautiful and featured in Architectural Digest. For the last hundred years, Warner Hill Farm has been a retreat for a prominent New York family. The grandfather’s European travels in the 1920s inspired the incorporation of Old World elements: a gracious courtyard, an addition to the brick farmhouse with Dutch gables, and formal gardens. Today, this well-stewarded property, with its own helipad, is sited on 120 acres and is one of the most exceptional properties in Vermont. A gated one-mile drive wends up through the trees to open on to a verdant landscape of rolling meadows and ponds. To the west there are expansive views of the mountains and lavish sunsets. The home has a gourmet kitchen, five bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms and spacious living spaces. Connected by a breezeway is a guest room ensuite. Behind the house is a stone patio next to a deep, clear pond fed by a cascading waterfall. A gym, office and home theater can be found across the courtyard. Outbuildings include a 4-stall horse barn, which is attached to a party barn with a massive stone fire place and cathedral ceilings. A short walk down an allée of maple trees is the pool. Also, on premise is a caretaker’s house/guest house with 3 bedrooms and stunning views. There is an extensive network of trails for walking, cross-country skiing or riding, and connects to GMHA trails. Conveniently located near Killington and Okemo for skiing. 2.5 hours from Boston and 4.5 hours from New York City. Additional acreage may be available.
