Spacious 2 Bedroom Apartment, Sleeps 6
My parents moved to Strafford in 1969 and I lived in South Strafford in the 1970s while I was in law school. I have good friends who still live here and fond memories of wonderful walks and scenic drives in this beautiful part of the world.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Owner chose Strafford
My mother bought the Strafford Brick Store building in 2001 and renovated it. the building, putting in two residential apartments. I inherited the building. My family uses one of the apartments whenever we come to Vermont.
What makes this Apartment unique
The Brick Store is a beautiful building, with wide plank floors, high ceilings and large windows, but what I like best about the building is its location on the Green in Strafford. The lobby of Post Office, located on the first floor, has rocking chairs where a group of ladies gather once a week to knit, and a revolving art exhibit. The Strafford Historical Society is located in the Annex. Two doors up the street is a fabulous restaurant. just beyond the next house is the entrance to one of the many fine walking trails in town. Two doors in the opposite direction is Town Library and next door to the library is the Justin Morrill Homestead. Though tiny in population, Strafford is rich in activities. At one point Strafford claimed three Olympic equestrians and one Olympic nordic skier.

The Strafford Brick Store sits at the base of the Green. The magnificent Strafford Town House sits on a hill at the other end of the Green.
