Property description

Huge views, big land, near everything: Hard to imagine that a nearly 200 acre hilltop estate is within walking distance of the village of Norwich, Vermont. With the scale, sweeping views to the White Mountains, complete privacy and presence of one of the great Vermont country properties, Highlander is just over a mile to Dan & Whit’s or a concert on the Green.

The home and barns are built on the site of an old hilltop farm with massive sugar maples, stone walls, hayfields, managed woodlands, and ponds for swimming and wildlife. Plenty of room to spread out or come together, inside and out. At the heart of the house is the capacious, recently renovated, kitchen. Relax and take in the views on the patios, porch or by the woodstove. Completing the first floor is the sunroom, dining room, library, living room, office, and a first floor bedroom en suite. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms and second floor primary suite and on the third floor an additional bedroom is tucked under the eaves with a playroom in the turret. On the lower level, there is classic play space: media room, exercise area and rec room, which leading into a summer dining area opens out to the pool. Extensive perennial gardens unfold throughout the summer, and an edible landscape yields apples, pears, peaches, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries.

An active, outdoorsy family shaped the character of Highlander. Many sets were played on the tennis court and active equestrians grew from ponies to top-flight competitors in the roomy 6 stall barn, fenced pastures, and trails. Kids learned hard work haying together in the meadows. Since there can never be enough toys, an ample 4 bay barn stores equipment with a 2 bedroom apartment above. The swimming pond up the hill converts to pond hockey in the winter, and the other three ponds host diverse wildlife all year round. The family hosted an annual cider pressing and school nature trips to the vernal pool, invented adventures in the woods, skied on the trails and raced on sleds down the long meadows. At the edge of the property, there is easy access to the Appalachian Trail. There is a 3 bay attached garage and a 3 bay detached garage. High Speed Internet on street. Norwich/Hanover Dresden school district. 5.4 miles from Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and 9.4 miles from Lebanon Municipal Airport. 2.5 hours from Boston.
