Here is a unique opportunity to own a Governor’s Mansion richly steeped in Vermont history! The original farmhouse portion of this home was owned by US Representative & 12th governor of Vermont Samuel Crafts, son of one of the founders of the town of Craftsbury, Ebenezer Crafts. The 56th governor of Vermont, Horace Graham then expanded the home from the 1920s-1940s, leaving much of the original farmhouse untouched while designing the larger front portion in a more ornate, Queen Anne style.
Special features such as embellished woodwork, Curley maple door frames, mixed hard wood pocket door and staircase are a Craftsman’s dream. Highlight these exceptional touches in your renovation of this gorgeous home to merge contemporary conveniences with the beauty and style of yesteryear. With over 3100 sq ft of living space, five bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths, as well as a summer kitchen boasting a sink reminiscent of the era, the possibilities of this historical home are endless.
Nestled among mature maples and apple trees on 5.5 acres with spectacular views, the newer portion of the home boasts long porches running around the sides and a tower overlooking the road. This is a phenomenal opportunity to own a piece of true Vermont history, all in a picturesque setting. This is a wonderful home for history buffs and anyone who appreciates unique, adorned and well-crafted features in a classic
