Tucked on the side of Markham Mountain, a white clapboard house was built on 48+ acres in 1950 to take in the grand Westerly views of Stratton and neighboring mountains. This 3 bedroom house is in one of the nicest areas of Weston, and was designed by Ray Austin, who was the lead architect behind the Weston Playhouse in the 1930s. When the current owners dove into renovation, they worked with Jeff Barnes, the mind behind many of Vermont’s finest homes. Vestiges of the old Foster Farm are the sugaring trails, which thread through the woods behind the house and climb up to the original sugarhouse. The sugarhouse hasn’t been in operation for decades, but today it is a welcoming refuge to relax and unplug.Most of the living space of the 3,457 square foot home is on the first floor including the primary bedroom and bath. It is open and light, which makes moving through the house feel so natural.The spacious and modern kitchen, smack in the center of the house, is where friends and family like to come together to cook, but it is the dining area where everyone lingers to take in the alpen skies at sunset with its reds and oranges and lavenders.The farmhouse-style living room is welcoming and calming with a fireplace and built-ins. The family room, replete with a swing hanging from the rafters, also, has a fire to cozy around. Each of these rooms run the entire width of the house and face out to the views. A mudroom leads to the two bay attached garage. Above the garage is a large three season room, last used as a home office. Its open layout and big views provide options for the next owner. There is a small pond, established perennial beds that flower continuously throughout the summer, a patio and stonewalls to complete the picture. The nationally renown Weston Playhouse is 1.2 miles down the road on the Green. Outdoor recreation abounds: 7.7 miles from Magic, 12 miles from Bromley, 17 miles from Stratton. Under 3 hours from Boston and 4 hours from New York.
