115 Bethel Mountain Rd. Rochester, VT


Located in the Heart of the Green Mountains, you will fall in love with this charming town and want to move into this rare timeless gem.

So many original details including two 1920s bathrooms with subway tile, pedestal sinks and oversized tubs. Two Batchelder tile floors, pressed tin ceilings, original light fixtures, double wide French Doors, wide room entrances, four panel hardwood doors with octagonal glass cut face door handles throughout, huge pantry, windows and closets in abundance.

The original owner of this home was an accomplished local businessman, who rose to become Major-General in the military. So prominent and dedicated to the green mountains, nearby Mount Cushman was named in his honor.

In spite of his many successes, one of his finest accomplishments is unarguably this house. Everything about it so is well thought out, construction quality and finishes virtually unparalleled.

In the 1970s an interior designer with high standards and a great eye became the new owner. She recognized the homes beauty, figured out how to buy it when it wasn’t on the market (a story for another day) and was smart enough to understand there was no need to mess with perfection. A fine and rare example of an unspoiled well preserved late 19th century colonial. This was, is and will always be a great home!
