There’s something special about a home that has lived for well over 100 years. With lots of TLC, many find a passion in restoring history to blend with today, to meld and keep the past alive. Living in New England, we’re fortunate to see some amazing restorations. A difficult task but The Week recently selected their top 6 picks of these super-centenarian homes, two of which are represented by LandVest.
Glenmorgan in South Woodstock, VT is like stepping into a bygone era. One can only imagine the grand gatherings of yesteryear….. As the current owner said, “I was trying to imagine the owners in the past. The place has a real presence. It’s not formal, but it does have a feeling of provenance. It is very much a Vermont property and a farm, and feels welcoming too.”
As for the Eastman Hill Stock Farm in Lovell, ME, this iconic Gentleman’s Farm was indeed once a “stock farm” raising award-winning cattle and horses. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and with conservations in place, the buildings and surroundings are meticulously kept and reflect the days of yore.
