Inside A $450K Vermont Farmhouse That's Right Out Of A Hallmark Movie

If you've ever dreamt of being transported into one of the small towns in a Hallmark movie, wandering the picturesque Main Street with a hot apple cider or cocoa in hand as you enjoy the season, you won't want to miss taking a peek at a recently listed Vermont farmhouse. This property in Topsham, Vermont, captures all the charm you love from your favorite Hallmark flicks — in fact, you may just get inspired to pen your own script after spending some time relaxing on the porch of this home or curled up in one of the cozy rooms inside.

The property has been on the market for 11 days, as per the Realtor listing. It was built all the way back in 1840, so it has some serious history and antique touches. The home has 2,756 square feet of total living space, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

And, you're not just getting the main residence — there's also a large barn that comes with the property, so you can bring to life all your Hallmark-inspired dream side hustles. Perhaps you'll decide to start a small hobby farm, transforming your goats' milk into artisanal bath products, or whip up countless batches of your County Fair prize-winning pumpkin pies for every Thanksgiving season. The current owner appeared to have been an equine enthusiast, but the space could easily be transformed into whatever fits your needs.

Read on to learn more about this idyllic Vermont property packed with charm.

Peaceful rural paradise

As the Realtor listing specifies, the home is located on a 9-acre lot, so you have plenty of space to enjoy the beauty of the Vermont countryside. The house itself is cheery and bright, with a sloped green roof, sunshine yellow trim along the windows and sides of the home, as well as brick red accents on the windows and a brick red front door — complete with a seasonal wreath, of course. The back is just as stunning and features a sizable porch area where you can sit and enjoy the outdoors — the grounds are bordered by rivers on either side, making for a peaceful ambiance.

If you have four-legged friends to contain, there's a quaint picket fence surrounding one portion of the yard, as well as space for gardens, flower beds, or whatever else your green thumb can envision. However, if you prefer other activities, the property is set up for just about anything you could imagine. The barn features a heated workshop for any crafting or creating, an insulated tack room to keep your gear protected, and four stalls for horses. There's also a sand riding ring behind the barn, so you can take your equine companions for a little jaunt, as well as three fenced paddocks.

Finally, as the listing specifies, there are miles of dirt roads on which you can set out on horseback or take your favorite outdoor adventure vehicles for a ride.

A kitchen made for meal time — and a loft with a view

Once you look inside the home, you're greeted with exactly what you might expect of a charmingly updated yet still cozy farmhouse, as the Realtor listing photos highlight. The kitchen and a portion of the main living area feature wood planks along the walls and ceilings as well as thick wood beams, adding to the farmhouse feel, although some of the other rooms have been splashed with pops of farmhouse color.

The cozy, sunny kitchen has several large windows nearby that fill the room with natural light, as well as a soaring ceiling that makes the space feel incredibly open. The cabinets are a mixture of pale gray and white with black hardware, with a navy blue rolling island that can be moved wherever it's needed. The colors contrast beautifully with the warm wood tones.

There's a dining table set up to make the space a dine-in kitchen, although, for special occasions, you may want to set the table in the dining room nearby, which features built-in shelving for displaying all your favorite vintage serving ware. Overlooking the kitchen area is a lofted space, the perfect spot for gathering. A row of windows at the same level allows you to gaze out at the grounds, watching as they turn from green grass to red and orange leaves to a blanket of snow as the seasons pass.

Farmhouse-inspired bedrooms for cozy nights

A flight of stairs near the front door leads up to the second story of the home, which features a cozy little reading spot near a window tucked away on one side of the hallway, while the other side leads to the home's three bedrooms. As the Realtor listing photos demonstrate, the current homeowner has brought their creativity to the upstairs hallway, painting murals that bring a bit of nature indoors.

All the upstairs bedrooms feature the same aged wide-plank wood flooring spotted on the main floor, accentuated by tall baseboards painted a creamy white hue and vintage-inspired doors that add a farmhouse touch. The rooms all have unique light fixtures, with several of the spaces also boasting built-in shelving, another element that adds an antique touch and isn't as commonly spotted in homes today in that particular style. Large windows allow the natural light to flow into the bedrooms, making even the most compact one seem spacious and also provide a gorgeous view of the countryside surrounding the property. The structure of the home also means several of the rooms have sloped ceilings on certain portions, adding another interesting detail to the spaces.

Finally, while none of the spaces have an ensuite bathroom, the shared upstairs bathroom is a cozy space with a claw-foot bathtub, farmhouse decor accents, and simple fixtures.
