Sunrise over Champlain Step back in time in this historic waterfront home, built in 1829 by Jonas Platt, the son of Plattsburgh's founder. This grand, stone home has been expanded over the years, although the timeless architectural details have been carefully preserved. The home's original kitchen has been converted to a dining room, but still features the original brick fireplace that served as the home's main cooking fixture. In fact, the home has a grand total of 8 fireplaces throughout, which originally served as the primary source of heat. The original or main section of the house has 5 large bedrooms and 3.5 baths, complete with mix of period and upgraded fixtures. The addition, which served as servant's quarters at one time, has 3 additional bedrooms and a full bath, and is in a separate wing. The Home has wood floors throughout, with many original architectural details. The waterfront offers 590 feet of shoreline on Lake Champlain with eastern views toward Valcour Island, Burlington, Vermont and the Green Mountains. The extensive frontage offers easy, wade- in access via a pebbled beach for swimming. With Lake Champlain's rocky coastline, this type of easy access is not typical. The shoreline also includes an existing boathouse, the footprint of which provides for an opportunity to upgrade. Surrounding grounds total 27.7 acres of mostly wooded property, includes a 4 bedroom unfinished guest house, a 2 bedroom rental cottage, storage buildings for equipment as well as an orchard.
