About The Caleb Atwell House

Completely and authentically restored circa 1750 colonial home available year-round. Surrounded by thousands of uninhabited acres; property is secluded, yet easily accessible, located on quiet country road with the nearest neighbor 1/2 mile away, yet just a few miles from Rte. 110 and the typical Vermont small town of Washington.

This home is privately situated at the end of a well maintained tree lined town road at Nineteen Hundred foot + elevation with magnificent Northern views.


Situated in Central Vermont, old timers claim you can see Canada on a clear day from the field behind the house.

Constructed hundreds of years ago as an original Post & Beam Cape, the home is complete with original wide-plank floors (honey colored), beamed ceilings, and more, and includes two bedrooms (sleeps six comfortably), living room with fieldstone fireplace, den, and modern bath and kitchen, with large flagstone rear patio. All conveniences including color TV, DVD & VCR, piped in stereo, telephone, microwave, washer and dryer, and tastefully furnished in a very comfortable decor. With its efficient heating system and generator backup it is comfortable year round in all sorts of weather.

Property includes private spring-fed pond ideal for swimming. Maple hedgerows, picturesque meadows, and nearby woodlands create an impressive Fall foliage display with magnificent views to the North.
