"Eaglebrook" is the 'Queen of Main St.' in one of the most beautiful and quintessential villages of Vermont. The Georgian/Federal style house, built circa 1826, was expanded circa 1840, adding 4 rooms & 2 Greek Revival exterior porches, including an arched ceiling in the upper porch. About 1960, a 'great' family room was added to the rear & in 1987, further expanded to include a glassed-in sun porch which overlooks the back lawn & the North Fork of the Saxtons River. 12 over 12 old glass windows, 7 fireplaces, wide pine floors, original moldings, balustrades and more--all preserved. The even more recent upgrades and refinements give a touch of the contemporary for a delightful blend of old and new. On the 2nd level of the barn, attached by breezeway, is a lovely 2 bedroom apt., suitable for guests, tenants or additional family, and, it too overlooks the river! This historic village and its surrounds, in addition to its ambience, offer an abundance of four season activities, such as at the Grafton Ponds recreation center and pristine Lowell Lake State Park, as well as numerous downhill ski areas, all within a short drive. A quiet stroll away are the Grafton library, the general store and the historic Grafton Inn and Phelps Barn & Pub, tennis courts and town gardens. "Eaglebrook" could be a wonderful primary or vacation home for a large family, or maybe even a B&B (as it once was for many years); or rent the apt. for a little extra income! Such endless possibilities!
