This big yellow farmhouse with green shutters was built in 1793 on the banks of the Connecticut River in Springfield, Vermont. Known as the General Lewis R. Morris House, it sits on 70+ acres that includes a Christmas Tree Farm. It’s on the market, so take a look!
An Historic Christmas Tree Farm in Springfield, Vermont:
The listing says:
Recognized as one of the prettiest farms in Vermont, the General Lewis R. Morris House located along the shores of the Connecticut River offers 70 +/- acres of rich tillable farm land, an unspoiled truly historic homestead with 8 wood-burning fireplaces, quintessential barns, two income producing guest cottages, a dock with access to 20 + miles of navigable river and 30,000+ Fraser Fir Christmas trees.
When I saw the front of the house, it reminded me of another one I featured called Glidden Point, an estate in Maine. I had to go back and compare the two. They’re both big and yellow with double chimneys, and they both sit on a hill overlooking a river. This one has a simpler design, though, without columns or dormers.
The farmhouse has 4 bedrooms, 5 baths, and 6,485 sq ft
That dress form would have to go if I slept in this bedroom. It would freak me out every time I woke up in the night and saw the shadow in the corner. Ha.
I wish there were more interior photos of the house, but I think the property itself is the main draw here.
This “National Weather Service Station” made me laugh:
Looks like a dream property to me with the beautiful red barn, charming old house, and river views.
