Property description

Welcome to "Hemlock Ridge Farm", located in the Parker Hill Rural Historic District. Like many New England farms, Hemlock Ridge's story is an evolving one.

Now it is a magical horse property with 10 acres of open field, 36x36 horse barn with four stalls, heated tack room with hot & cold running water and a sand dressage arena. The farmhouse itself was renovated by the current owners with an eye toward energy efficiency. A Buderus high efficiency low emission boiler,a Rheem Marathon elec. hot water tank are a few examples of this work.A whole house energy audit was done and insulation was added everywhere A solar array supplies all of the electricity. A covered front porch built with Cumeru wood was created. Entering the large slate tiled mudroom one sees lots of storage for coats and farm gear. The first floor master en suite was designed with a spacious sunny sitting room, and a large soaking tub and walk in shower. The kitchen has tons of pantry storage and VT soapstone counter tops and a very special hand painted mural by a local artist. The Living room/dining room is flooded with natural light. The fireplace has a Jotul wood stove installed and is capable of heating the entire home. A screened in porch is where you will spend the summer!
