Step into this 3-story farmhouse that features a remarkable gourmet kitchen

With numerous bedrooms and a very generous open-concept living and dining area, there is more than enough room for large gatherings in this three-story remodeled farmhouse. The listing agent, Kirsten Dwyer, describes how the "home has kept much of its historic character and charm from the molding on the windows to the exposed hand hewn beams throughout."
Built in 1790, the home sits on the Maeck farm, still in operation today. Keeping the style of the old farm, the newly built three-car garage looks as much a barn from yesterday as it does its modern function.
A chef's dream kitchen, with abundant storage and various cabinet designs, including open shelving plate holders and four-pane upper cabinets that reach the tall ceiling. A combination of vertical beadboard and granite makes an elegant backsplash.
The white and charcoal granite counters reach all corners of this extra-large country kitchen. A porcelain farm sink is deep enough to wash fresh vegetables from the garden. With windows gracing both sides of the kitchen, natural light hits every surface, lighting work stations and nourishing potted herbs that grace the window ledges.
Exposed original beams dominate the dining and living areas. Rustic touches like roughed leather dining chairs and antique wheels on a coffee table make for comfortable, casual entertaining.
Viewing the living area from another angle, a wood-burning stove is positioned to warm winter guests. A French door opens to another area of home, its turn-of-the-century white painted trim matching the windows of the kitchen.
Extra-wide-cut wooden planks are roughly hewn to bring a textured, almost ranch vibe to the bathroom. An old window has been repurposed into a shabby chic mirror.
Corrugated metal frames the upper portion of this one-of-a-kind shower, accessed by a swinging saloon door.
A subtle baby blue softens the walls of this restful bedroom. Soft-white ruffled curtains add a romantic touch.
The bedrooms and bathroom on the upper floor were created under the slope of the attic's roof. French double doors open out to a balcony that overlooks the pristine countryside.
Milk-cream walls are the perfect contrast to dark wood furniture. The paneled sleigh bed is a staple of Vermont farmhouse style.
Fashioned after a rustic barn look, this bathroom is styled with a combination of white painted boards that separate the shower and freestanding tub and the vanity that is created of roughly stained hardwoods under a marble countertop.
Tucked behind another half wall, the toilet provides privacy in this overlarge bathroom.
A farmhouse within views of mountains provides the ease of country with the grandeur of a sunset over the summits.
