Tunbridge, VT, USA
25 Coutu Court
The long driveway passes by the stables, crests the hilltop and opens to dramatic views and a contemporary reinvention of two antique barns. The property’s 135 acres offer complete privacy and a lovely mix of open meadows, classic Vermont views of ranging hills, a swimming pond and woodlands. The hand-hewn vintage post and beam construction and massive stone fireplaces provide a rustic counterpoint to the open floor plan while floor-to-ceiling windows capture views in three directions. The interior spanning three floors with 6,048 square feet, and 3 bedrooms is finished in rare native butternut woodwork, oak floors, and marble countertops. A gourmet kitchen centered around an AGA stove, is well equipped for large gatherings. There is a two-bedroom guest house made from a post and beam barn frame, six-stall barn with tack room, feed room, hay loft, chicken coop, greenhouse, fenced garden, and two 4-bay equipment sheds. Three fenced pastures, the half-acre spring fed swimming pond stocked for fishing, and miles of groomed carriage trails round out this beautiful property located 25 miles from Woodstock and 31 miles from Hanover and Dartmouth College.
