Quietly waiting in our National Historic District of Old Bennington is a true Grand Dame of Shingle Cottage Architecture. This venerable c.1905 Lady has lost none of her grandeur and has stood patiently waiting to be saved and cherished. The Shingle style is an American style of architecture. English influence was combined with the renewed interest in Colonial American architecture which followed the 1876 celebration of the Centennial and numerous estates throughout New England were created in this style. The previous owner honored the original house by retaining both the original exterior and interior appointments and design. Built in 1905 by the owners of the Holden-Leonard Woolen Mills, its elegance and refinement are displayed on every one of its 3 levels and no expectation will be disappointed. Overgrown gardens still hint at their beauty and were designed by Rose Greely, nationally known landscape architect. An L shaped stable borders the rear of the property. The home has retained all of its remarkable features (albeit with a brand new roof added this past year), and her infrastructure remains as sturdy and intact as the day it was built. However, the rest of the house-such as heating, electrical and plumbing-will need to be brought up to modern standards. Not for the faint of heart or limited budget. This will be a once in a lifetime project for the serious Preservationist. Historical information and actual statistics immediately available.
