A historic Federal meets modern design with this impeccably resurrected home, now lovingly referred to as “Hubble Shire Farm." Featured in numerous publications, Hubble Shire Farm, originally the Davis House, was built in 1832 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior. The home showcases true-to-era antiques, furnishings, hand-hewn wide plank floors and perfectly placed lighting.
The property is situated on 23 acres in the center of the quintessential small Vermont town of Chelsea, just steps from the village Greens. A lovely foot bridge covers the first branch of the White River which runs through the property, an ideal spot for dinner parties and weddings in the warmer months, or for simply enjoying the sights and sounds of nature. Take advantage of over 23 acres of manicured lawn, woodlands and breathtaking hills for hiking, apple picking, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, and snow mobiling. The property connects to the snow mobile and cross country skiing (VAST) trail to East Randolph and beyond. Perennial flowers frame the exquisite federal gardens, and generous porches provide ample outdoor living opportunities. Only 40 minutes to Hanover/Dartmouth, 35 minutes to Woodstock, 15 minutes to Vermont Law School, 2.5 hours to Boston, 1 hour to Burlington, 35 minutes to Montpelier and 45 minutes to Stowe, a year-round recreation destination.
Amanda purchased Hubble Shire Farm in 2019 with the objective of opening the property as a bed & breakfast for fine dining, accommodations and exquisite events. Raised in a family where creative expression was paramount, Amanda has an eye for interior design, a passion for cooking and entertaining, and is a collector of European artwork, furnishings and Continental silver.
Hubble Shire Farm is Amanda's vision of historical elegance, free of the stresses and constraints of urban living. Amanda lives on the main property with her Australian shepherd named Tristan.
