This handsome red-brick Federal-style house on a 121-acre horse farm in Vermont has some celebrity pedigree, having been owned at one time by Michael J. Fox. It’s known as Lottery Hill Farm because it was built with the winnings from the Louisiana lottery in 1817.
The main house has 6 bedrooms and 9 fireplaces.
The listing says: “Period craftsmanship is evident throughout the interior. The first floor formal rooms are elegantly proportioned and have high ceilings, crown molding, raised panel wainscoting and original four panel doors.”
“The chef’s kitchen features a well-planned workspace, an attached butler’s pantry and opens onto a breakfast room looking out onto a large covered porch.”
“The house also features twelve over twelve windows and a variety of wood flooring throughout.”
“A large barn provides ample storage as well as an incorporated one-bedroom apartment with studio. The numerous outbuildings, run in sheds, riding ring and in-ground pool complete the property.”
“The estate’s country setting includes immediate access to the Green Mountain Horse Association trail system, fenced pasture, rolling meadows, ponds, a year round stream and mixed northern hardwood forests.”
When Michael J. Fox owned the property, he had a 3-bedroom guest house built on it. I wish they included photos of it in the listing!
As an aside, have you seen Fox on The Good Wife playing a rival attorney named Louis Canning? I always love it when he’s in an episode and challenging Alicia in court. (By the way, I wrote about Alicia’s cool Chicago apartment last year–you can see it here.)
Asking price is $2.75 million. For more photos and information, visit the Lottery Hill Farm website and Curbed.
