Imagine owning one of the premier historic Victorian homes Circa 1890 on the west end of Bennington, set back behind handsome stonewalls and posts at the entry. There is a paved circular driveway set on 2.93 acres of privacy, lawns and brook, all located at the base of Mount Anthony. This gracious home has only two former owners and was the original home of Charles Cresson Jones, farm manager of Fillmore Farms who perished on the Titanic after completing his journey to purchase sheep for his employer, James Colby Colgate. J.C. Colgate had provided this home for his farm manager and was part of the family's estate until 1967, when it was sold for the first time outside of the Colgate/Fillmore holdings. Cherished, loved and respected for its structural quality and custom millwork, the current owners have retained all of the original homes features such as a full-length entry hall, front and rear staircases, maple flooring, two fireplaces, sunroom and sun porch and have thoroughly updated the interior with a gleaming new kitchen and updated two baths. They have also added a beamed, cathedral ceiling family room to compliment the formal areas of the dining and living room. All four bedrooms on the second floor have deep closets. There is a full attic with an actual staircase and room, plus a full basement. Numerous built-ins, great laundry room, and pantries will delight any homemaker. All of this with over 3,000 sq. ft. of brightly lit windows overlooking a pastoral setting.
