Adirondack Estate, Estate of the Day
This charming Adirondack style home is a newer home but with rough-hewn touches that give it a rustic feel. The post and beam home in Bridgewater, Vermont sits on 247 acres with a pond, gardens, stone walls, meadows and mountain views. The 12,000-square-foot residence has wide pine and stone floors, five fieldstone fireplaces and open living spaces with French doors. The home combines country charm with modern amenities. A good example is the tiled kitchen with the antiqued details and the easily accessible television monitor. The home is listed at $7.9 million and includes a wine cellar and two hot tubs. After the jump, country modern goes too far with a glass shower enclosure in a fieldstone bathroom.
