Springfield, VT (PRWEB) November 26, 2014
The General Lewis R. Morris homestead in Springfield, VT, a truly historic 1793 Federal style home, is on the market for the first time in over 30 years. General Morris served in the Continental Army during the American Revolution. He later became one of the Commissioners who arranged for Vermont’s admission to the Union. He served two terms in Congress and in 1801 his abstention from voting resulted in the election of Thomas Jefferson. The house is on the National Register of Historic Places and is a fine example of a hip-roofed Federal style home. The rooms are of a scale and size rarely found in many historic homes which retains much of its original features and character.
Chris Lang of Four Seasons Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to be representing this property… “In addition to the historical value of the home, it is also recognized as one of the prettiest farms in Vermont. The property includes 72+/- acres of rich tillable farmland, an iconic red barn, two guest homes, a dock with access to 20+ miles of boat-friendly Connecticut River and over 30,000 Fraser Fir Christmas trees. The current owners have been operating a Christmas Tree Farm on the property for nearly 30 years.” Chris goes on to say “The property has been well managed and lovingly cared for by the current owners who are hopeful will find the right steward for this important historic home.”
