The Hill is a modest name for an exceptionally private 82+/- acre hill top meadow at a 1,780 foot elevation with breathtaking 270-degree views of the Green Mountains and White Mountain ranges, and located within 4.8 miles of the Woodstock village. This is a property designed to enjoy country living and the outdoors. The c2002 custom cedar shingle 3-bedroom residence (2,688 square feet) was designed by AIA award winning Truexcullins, a firm known for high craftsmanship and sustainable, enduring architecture.
Created to integrate with the natural surroundings, the spacious living areas take advantage of the stunning unobstructed views with large windows and high ceilings, and is finished with cedar plank walls and trim, antique pine floors, soapstone counters, fir trusses, exposed beams, and a 2-story fieldstone fireplace. Tucked away with its own views, privacy and rustic comfort is a 2-bedroom classic cabin (1,013 square feet) constructed from an antique barn with hand hewn beams, barn board walls and a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. The grounds offer a balance of meadows and woodlands laced with reconstructed stonewalls.
There is a 1.5-mile maintained trail for walking and skiing, a 1/3-acre swimming pond with a fishing shack, a Hobbit House built into the side of a hill, and a lean-to with a fire pit sited on a prominent overlook. Adjacent properties includes a 300-acre town-owned land with reservoir and an extensive trail network, and a 186-acre conserved property. The property is the subject of Thunder-Struck Fiddle, the true story of Charles Morris Cobb and his family farm on The Hill in the 1850s. The Hill overlooks Mt. Tom and the protected Marsh Billings Rockefeller National Park.
