In the high meadows 8 miles north of Brattleboro, The John Miller Homestead, with its vernacular saltbox, has sheltered memories for over 230 years and been lovingly stewarded into the 21st century. There are exceptional views to the East and on a clear day you can see Mt. Monadnock in NH. The home sits on 85 pastoral acres at the end of a tree-lined gravel drive bounded by stone walls and surrounded by a pool and pond and trails for walking or snowshoeing; a cherry orchard, extensive perennial gardens, which include a peony hedge said to have over 100 different varieties. Winter pleasures include cross country skiing and snowshoeing on the trails. In summer, the trails and meadows encourage exploring on foot and mountain bike, interspersed with lunch and dinner al fresco on the screened pavilion, and quiet time in the potting shed. The turnkey, meticulously maintained property has at its hub a spacious, recently updated chef’s kitchen. From this central point, it connects to the mudroom, library, front hallway and living room/dining area, which features exposed beams and a fireplace. A first-floor primary bedroom and bath and a screened-in porch are off the South end of the house. Dutchie Perron has hand-painted a mural landscape, which includes the red saltbox and other local landmarks in the hallway leading to the primary suite. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms, a small office and a reading nook tucked under the eaves. This is a place that is comfortable, relaxing and makes you feel happy to be there. Attached is a 2 bay garage. 2 ¼ hours from Boston and 3 ½ hours from New York.
