Ideally sited on 10 level acres of open Vermont countryside, in a location that is convenient to Quechee, Woodstock and the Upper Valley, this circa 1821 Federal Period home, once operated as a well-known B&B, is now a fully restored five-bedroom, three and a half-bath private residence. Faithfully preserving the period details that blend seamlessly with the conveniences of modern amenities and updated systems, Half Penny Farm has an impressive provenance and was once owned by the pioneering female alpinist Dora Keen Handy for whom the road is named. Approached under a canopy of maples and across flagstone paths and terraces, sited well back from the road which is primarily used by local residents, the ten acre parcel also includes a spring fed pond and swimming pool, pool cabana with changing room, half bath and kitchenette with sink and refrigerator, a detached barn garage and formal walled garden and garden shed. Crossing the threshold into the home from the flagstone terrace one is immediately transported back to a simpler time. From the varied-width wide pine floors, to the 12 over 12 windows with antique wavy glass, the interior presents a wealth of preserved period details along with some modern flourishes that blend seamlessly with the exposed brick, hand hewn beams, painted floors, antique French roof tile flooring and original lathe and plaster walls. Other historic features include wide pine flooring, a large and working beehive oven equipped fireplace.
