A diamond in the rough! This stately New Englander located in Westminster Heights offers spacious rooms, gracious original features, a wonderful village location, gardens and fruit trees, and a large attached barn. The home has great bones but has been neglected for a while so you will need to bring your tools and imagination. The rear of the building has been used as an apartment in the past but could easily be integrated back into the main house. Well built and solid, the house has nice touchs like a formal entry foyer and grand staircase, a parlor, living room, grand dining room, laundry room/ pantry, huge walk up attic for storage, full basement. 3 level barn with loads of storage and workshop area. A rare find and a great opportunity to own a wonderful home!

    Build date on record is 1881. I believe it’s older than that. 1881 could have been a remodel or whatever other reason build dates are sometimes not spot on. I do love this one though. To the next owner, let us know how your restoration goes!

    I found the national register information for Westminster. I believe this is the D. Arnold Hills home #20. Main house thought to be built in 1881, but the rear wing was from 1848.

      The NRHP history contains some incorrect facts and sketchy conclusions on the 1880’s build date, suggesting Hills built the home upon his re-marriage after 1885. In fact, he never re-married and was close to 70 at the time.
      David Arnold Hills (1817-1903), a cabinetmaker from New Hampshire, purchased the property in 1848 and died there in 1903. He lived in California and Minnesota for awhile, and returned to Westminster in 1862. The village map of 1869 shows the current configuration of the house with a barn at the rear that was later rebuilt.
      In any event, it’s a neat old house set between the church and the library in a proper New England village.

    beautiful! I would love to restore this lovely house! I’m too old for such a project, but were I younger…

    I love the wide board floors, the old four panel doors, the stairs winding up to the third floor, the old kitchen stove (Chambers?) in the second kitchen. I even like the 1950s pink and gray bathroom! If only I had the time and energy. This house deserves to be loved as it’s a beauty with so much elegance!

    It’s amazing to see all these comments about the house we’ve fallen in love with for the new home of our fledgling craft school, Mill Hollow Works! I don’t know how we could swing it financially, but can’t you imagine taking a woodworking class in the shop of a cabinetmaker born in 1817, while staying in his house? …in the middle of the historic district in the center of Vermont’s oldest town? millhollowworks.org
