What We Love

  • This is the hub of the universe for getting outside: access to hundreds of miles of gravel, GMHA, VAST and other trails starting right out the door.
  • The light, the airiness and the simplicity of the house.
  • Work from home with high-speed internet then step into the beautiful countryside.
  • The privacy. It’s so quiet here.
  • A really well thought through farm setup.

Right sized, right location. In the spirit of a hunt box, a simple, breezy, light house with an efficient set up for horses in the middle of some of the best trails and gravel roads in Vermont. Densmore Brook Farm’s 36 acres is in the heart of horse country, less than 4 miles from the hamlet of South Woodstock. The three-bedroom, two-bath, 2,256 square foot house was built in the 1980s in the spirit of a classic farmhouse, with renovations as recently as 2019. The light, airiness and open layout of the first floor make for both easy daily living and for entertaining crowds (including for years, the local hunt breakfasts).

The property is the source of Densmore Brook, which rises in a spring part way up the height of the land. Land clearing took place in two major phases to create pastures for horses. Outbuildings were added over the years, including a 4-stall barn and chicken coop. The mud room and 2-bay attached garage were built in 2014. The original wooden clapboard was replaced with Hardie board-type siding in 2019. The house opens to a deck and stone patio into established perennial gardens filled with bleeding heart, peonies, and lilies.

The location is convenient to Woodstock, Dartmouth College and Hanover, NH . It connects on to the expansive Hartland, South Woodstock, West Windsor network of trails hacking distance to GHMA. The property is in the heart of beautiful gravel bike riding, VAST snowmobile trails and close to  Mt. Ascutney’s mountain bike trail system and near Suicide Six, Killington, Okemo, Dartmouth Ski Way and Mt. Sunapee. 2:15 hours to Boston.
