John Curtis, a veteran of the American Revolution, received a land grant to establish a homestead in the new State of Vermont circa 1780. The fields & pastures carved out of a wilderness sustained his family for 5 generations. Stonewalls & tumbled dams remain as evidence of the industry & effort of early pioneers. The Hollow Farm consists of the striking 6 bedroom/4 bath Homestead House & the 3 Bedroom/2 bath Brook House sited in the middle of the 91-acre property. The new Homestead created in 1988 around the stone fireplace & native timber framed original home. The southwesterly exposure illuminates the spacious gathering rooms & private spaces through the enormous round windows. The interior layout reflects casual country lifestyle with an open floor plan spiraling around the central kitchen complex, which opens out on to a wide, elevated terrace, decks & balcony's on each level. Common rooms & quiet corners are visually connected & access by open stairways. The architectural form expresses the Vermont farmhouse on a grand scale with a cupola & splendid views of the surrounding fields & mountains. The property adjoins Coolidge State Forest at a place where a magical waterfall & sweet swimming hole are formed over exposed bedrock. The maintained road ends a mile or so beyond the old farmstead & continues on with miles of trails leading to South Woodstock, Plymouth & Reading townships. Nearby are Woodstock Village, the ski resorts of Killington & Okemo & public waters.
