Listed by T Story Jenks and Dia Jenks of LandVest, Inc/Woodstock
Grenfell is part of the daily pulse of the river with its 884' of river frontage, falls, swimming hole and sinuous curves by the house--a historic Meetinghouse--which was moved upriver and is now a 4-bedroom home after extensive, careful renovation and expansion in 2013. The best views of the New Haven River and its wildlife are from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the great room, the deck as you cook in the wood-fired pizza oven, the screened porch, or the riverside firepit. Even the well-appointed kitchen takes in the river life. The property comes with a rich history: Sir Wilfred Grenfell, a lifelong mission doctor to isolated villagers on the Newfoundland and Labrador coasts 100 years ago, built the Dog Team Tavern with his wife Lady Anne Grenfell as an outlet for native handicrafts. Unfortunately, it burned down, leaving only the mid-19th century historic Meetinghouse, which was painstakingly restored and preserved. Today, it is a house of high craftmanship, thoughtfulness and love. It is close to Middlebury College, Middlebury Coop and outdoor recreation (tubing and fly fishing included). There is a two-bay garage with guest quarters above. A second lot within the 5.2 acres could be a building site for another residence on the river.
