    I think you got the images mixed up.

    The interior images cannot be from the same house shown in the exterior images!

      Nope, those are the listing images. Unexpected ain’t it?

        No kidding. I almost didn’t click on it. Dang. The parlor and DR look like they belong in the Twain house or Sagamore Hill. Looks like someone had those rooms re-fashioned right around the turn of the century. Great fireplace, (though probably pretty smoky – and maybe a BIT large for this low ceilinged environ – though I do like it – and it does work). Another great tea house. What a surprise!

      It is a crazy-amazing contrast!

      The exterior looks like it was resurfaced by the sort of guys (underemployed masons?) who apparently went around putting brick cladding on earlier frame-built houses back in the 1930’s…there are a number of properties in Providence, RI, that got this treatment.

      That giant arched FP is something else, but doesn’t succeed in design terms–it’s way too big for the room, and way too robust for the finely-detailed surrounding woodwork!

      I honestly thought the same thing.

      Holy wood-paneling, Batman!

    Wow…that rather subdued exterior did not prepare me for the OTT woodwork and fireplace on the first floor. Amazing. Did they rebuild the exterior? ! I mean seriously!?

    Wow! What an incredible house. Would love to have it.

    There’s a lot going on in this place!

    This house blew me away too. I almost didn’t click on it either. The woodworking is breathtaking! My husband and I live in Asheville NC, there is an historical home called Cedar Crest Inn that has incredible woodworking too. Check it out http://www.CedarCrestInn.com.
    We were told some of the same craftsmen who did the woodworking in The Biltmore House also did woodworking for this house. Truly amazing! You never get tired of admiring it.

    Good thing I was sitting down… this one could’ve knocked me over with surprise! Such an unexpected interior! I agree with the poster who said the scale of that fireplace is off for the rest of the room, but it’s still beautiful nevertheless. And as VT is my favorite place in the world (yup, the whole state), if you twisted my arm, I guess I’d take this house…. LOL!

    What’s with the big concrete slab in front of the house, though? Is there a porch missing?

    I’m looking through the pictures of this house and BAM! I almost fall out of bed at the interior pictures. Wow. My brother went to college in Lyndon right around the corner from this house. It is a very nice town with a busy ski community in winter. Quite a beautiful area as well with some really good restaurants. What else could you need?

    Posted 2017, looks like it sold since but it’s back on the market (not a flip.) Updated and moved to the front page.
