This extraordinary Stone Cottage began its history as a schoolhouse built near the end of the Civil War. It exemplifies a construction style known as 'snecked ashlar' a technique brought to Vermont by craftsmen from the Aberdeen region of Scotland in the early 19th Century. The historic homestead is sited overlooking the Williams River next to an active farm. Meticulously renovated the home includes a great room with wood panelled vaulted ceiling. This spacious gathering room is centered on a wood-burning stone fireplace and illuminated by windows looking out the river. The gracious country kitchen is accented with custom cherry cabinets, built-in hutch, a granite surfaced breakfast island and bay windows looking over the Williams River. The kitchen opens directly onto a secluded patio ideal for seasonal dining & morning coffee. The primary bedroom & bath is on the second floor with a private guest bedroom on the lower level with walk-out access to a level area above the scenic waterfront. The detached gambrel garage invites a variety of possible uses with a large, bright former workshop below and a clear-span upper room with enough space for an efficiency apartment. Chester's Stone Village is nearby with shops and services. Ludlow and the Okemo ski area are about 20 minutes away by car.
