For Sale


Thistle Hill offers the ultimate combination of vernacular exterior form contrasted with stylish, modern and organically inspired interior spaces in a setting and location that offers privacy and a sense of protection as well as convenience to recreation and civilization. Snugly nestled into the North Pomfret hills, just a few miles from both Hanover, NH, home of Ivy-league Dartmouth College and Woodstock, VT, “the prettiest village in New England” and sharing a border with the federally protected Appalachian Trail Corridor, Thistle Hill enjoys a commanding view across the Pomfret hills and over the property’s clean, spring fed pond at beginning of the approach to the private drive. The banked, terraced and cascading gardens surrounding the house are simply magnificent. Created with the deft hand and an artist’s touch, the borders, beds and ground cover as well as the stone walls and paths that mark and define the property create a private sanctuary for humans and wildlife alike, with birds of every species trading across the valley in the air above. The screen room, steps from the front door and suspended over the hillside offers the most tranquil location from which to enjoy this aspect of the landscape.
