Built in 1850, Forest Hall was completely restored by the current owners and is in pristine condition. No detail was left untouched. The result is a rich blend of land, structure, location, and history that brings together all the best that Woodstock has to offer.
The estate includes a 3-story residence with 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, a 3-story carriage barn, a “coachman’s cottage” serving as a guesthouse with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and a bunk house/cabin, all on 32+/- acres.
The land is located on both sides of Old River Road with approximately 20.6 +/- acres on the house side and 11.41+/- to the south with 1,200+ feet of Ottauquechee river frontage. Bridle paths and carriage roads pass throughout. From the high point, known as “Rockledge,” you can look south across the village to Mt. Tom and the National Park and see the forested hillsides that Frederick Billings planted as part of his reforestation conservation efforts. Several neighboring properties are conserved.
As a village farm, Forest Hall is ideally located in walking distance to the center of Woodstock, yet it is situated on a rise with enough acreage to be completely private and peaceful. Never before on the open market, Forest Hall is a distinguished opportunity to own one of the finest properties in New England.
Celebrate the lifestyle and location of this one-of-a kind offering that was never before on the open market. Surrounded by “natural beauty, environmental quality, heritage, culture, recreation, and civic vitality,” these are the virtues that Laurence S. Rockefeller said “have the power to lift the human spirit.” These are the qualities that define and distinguish Forest Hall as one of the finest properties in New England.
