Seeking a living piece of history to call home, but lacking the time or patience for updates? This is the ideal place for you. Originally constructed in 1860 by Silas Griffith, Vermont's inaugural millionaire, the residence earned the title of the "skyscraper of Southern Vermont" during the Civil War era. Subsequently owned by Perl S. Buck, a Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winner, she operated the "Maple Skillet Eatery" on the first floor. In 2017, the prior owners undertook a comprehensive renovation, including new insulation, structural enhancements, plumbing and electrical upgrades, a new roof, windows, and modern amenities like heat pumps, central AC, solar, and smart thermostats. Recent owners renovated the kitchen, adding an expansive island and all new appliances. The heart of the home resides on the second floor, featuring an open-plan kitchen/living/dining area with hardwood floors, high ceilings, and oversized windows providing panoramic easterly mountain views from two elevated decks. Additionally, there's an attached 2-car garage and front retail space. Despite its central town location, the property sprawls over 8.24 serene acres with access to an idyllic swimming hole. Included in this package is a separate 600 sq ft guest cottage (MLS #4983599). Total price for both 1,250,000-#34 at 1,055,000 and #36 at 195,000. All measurements are approximate.
