From the Zillow listing:


157 acres with spellbinding views westerly to the VT mountains and ski areas, and southerly over the CT River and the Massachusetts Mtn ranges, with miles of trails – this is the private estate known as Crestwood, home of the famous Scofield Chapel. The original main house was built in 1895 and has seen many renovations and changes throughout the 45 years of this owner’s tenure, with the addition of a greenhouse and grand salon, lounge/bar, service kitchen for large parties, and sleeping quarters for extra guests. Once the setting for large weddings and intimate parties, this property has seen and done it all – even providing a place for helicopters to land! A charming separate guest house was added in 1982 w/full kitchen, bath, living area and bedroom. Today, a new owner will need to bring the buildings back to their former glory. Much of the value is in the land and stunning views.
