A chance to own a piece of American history – the Remember Baker House c1733 is remarkable in so many ways. Preserved and adapted thru time, gently cared for by the current family for over 53 years. Rolling land with large lawn, pond, brook and frontage on the Shepaug River. The house maintains many original features and has very high ceilings for its time – close to 9′ on the main level. Original paneling in living room, flooring which has been left unstained or altered in many parts of the house. Very tasteful den/great room addition off the kitchen with vaulted wood ceiling, fireplace, built in shelving with TV cabinet and windows overlooking the gardens. Many recent upgrades to mechanical systems and kitchen appliances. Full bath off the living room allows for overflow guests if needed. 5 bedrooms in total, 3 on the second floor, 1 on the third floor, and 1 in the entertaining-guest barn. Guest barn has spacious screened porch overlooking pond and hot tub. Tennis court discretely tucked in rear gardens, meandering pathways around the pond and to the Shepaug River. With a small sand beach, current owners spent generations swimming in the dredged pond. Multiple sheds and a 30KW generator. Also includes 1 acre parcel across road not in acreage calculation. Fun fact – Ethan Allen’s parents married in the house, and Remember Baker Jr was one of 3 Roxbury connected Green Mountain Boys along with Allen and Seth Warner.
