762 Royalton Turnpike || $1,150,000 || Sold


At the end of a private drive, ‘Sonnenberg Haus’ is sited on the top of an open rise overlooking a sweeping lawn, raised bed gardens and dramatic long-range westerly views of the center of the Green Mountains. The striking post and beam saltbox, offering an open floor plan and abundant natural light throughout, is privately located in an area of substantial country estates, minutes from downtown Woodstock, Vermont and steps from the five-star, luxury hotel Twin Farms and Barnard's Silver Lake. The four-bedroom, three-bath Colonial inspired home is set at an elevation of just over 1500 feet and nestled at the edge of the wooded portion of the property’s 11.72 acres which include an enchanting pond not far from the house. Extensively updated and upgraded over the last two owner’s stewardship, the home offers spa-like bathrooms, a new farmer’s porch and a completely remodeled second level offering an elegant master suite and two additional bedrooms that share a bath. Originally constructed by Hans Kurash and his son as part of the storied Sonnenberg development, named by the owner and originator after his favorite ski slope in the Swiss Alps, Sonnenberg still exists today in a certain measure and includes Twin Farms, named by Forbes Magazine as the 2020 Hotel of the Year. Across the street you will find Kiss the Cow Farm, an organic, grass-based dairy and Barnard Feast & Field Market. Showings begin 1/23. No showings 1/22.
