Night Pasture Farm's hilltop 120.1 acres offers complete privacy with expansive views of a First Branch River Valley and surrounding hills. The craftsman style contemporary three-bedroom timber frame home, designed by AIA award-winning architect Jeremy Bonin, is sited in a high meadow, the ​"Night Pasture"​, where cows grazed for generations of farmers.

Night Pasture Farm is an energy-efficient 5 star + level "Efficiency Vermont" rated home. The 2,986 square foot house has a unique architectural design that was a featured cover story in ​Timber Home Living ​magazine. Inspired by a stately maple on the property, the timber frame lines appear to grow as they would in the forest, angling the natural light to fill the home from the myriad of windows surrounding it. Adding to the modern elements is the dry-laid stone fireplace which turns 45 degrees as it nears the ceiling and exposes a sculptural steel connection to the timber frame. Taking nineteen months to complete, this feature is a true work of art.

Other amenities include a chef-designed cherry wood and soapstone kitchen, large pantry, ample first-floor primary suite and bath, open air loft with leather flooring, paneled wine cellar, exercise room, cedar lined Finlandia sauna room, radiant heated oversized two-bay attached garage and high-speed internet for working or learning from home.

Extensions of the indoor living areas are functional gathering places outdoors designed to complement the open feeling while embracing the beautiful locale. Just steps from the bluestone wrap around porch is a massive stone table for dining, a "cowboy style" fire pit, a Big Green Egg smoking oven, a Kalamazoo stainless steel propane fired pizza oven and a built in DCS grill, all facing the amazing view and stunning sunsets.

There is an operational three story bank barn for equipment, workspace, and storage. The bucolic approach to the main home is a half-mile drive that wends along hayfields passing a 3 bay garage with a storage loft.

The home is located in the quaint shire town village of Chelsea, which is on the national register of historic places. The peaceful privacy of Night Pasture Farm is just 35 minutes from the state capital of Montpelier, which offers the best of Vermont culture. The city of Boston and Boston Logan International Airport is an easy 2 1⁄2 hours via major Interstates and it’s 5 hours from New York City via train, bus, or Interstate. Lake Champlain and the Burlington International Airport are just over an hour's drive.
