Set high above, the main street of a quintessential Colonial village, with its green, white steepled meeting house, town hall, and carriage sheds, this captivating brick home with white clapboard ell has been maintained with a sensitivity to its authenticity and history. Three downstairs rooms and the two front bedrooms upstairs feature original fireplaces and pine floors. The first floor front rooms have Indian shutters. Exquisite woodwork and moldings. The kitchen has a southfacing bay window by the breakfast nook and an unusual zinc sink. A former carriage shed is now newly constructed as a vaulted ceilinged great room with propane heat and a built-in Murphy bed. Lovely landscaping on all sides of the house provide an ever changing kaleidoscope of color. The wood clapboards were replaced and painted in 2018. Recent replacement windows, 200 amp electric entry. Roof and furnace are both less than 10 years old. Enjoy village living convenient to skiing, golf, swimming, hiking, concerts, and great community spirit.

    I’ve always loved interior shutters! I think they are so practical. I had never heard them referred to as “Indian shutters”, but then I saw the following article, which explains that the term is New England in origin.
