Vermont Farm Previously Owned by Michael J. Fox (House of the Day)

Before you go, we thought you'd like these...


Michael J. Fox didn't have to travel back in time to buy this farm in South Woodstock, Vt., built in 1817. But he did own it briefly starting in the late 1980s. Now, it can be yours for $2.75 million.

The Lottery Hill Farm spans 121 acres and features a six-bedroom brick Federal Style main house and a newer three-bedroom Cape-style guesthouse, which was added by Fox. The farm also includes a large barn complete with a one-bedroom apartment, numerous outbuildings, a riding ring and an in-ground pool.

The typical form of original federal, or Adam, houses is a simple box shape, usually two to three rooms deep, with a symmetrical arrangement of doors and windows, especially on the front. Additions to the sides and rear are common.

The most common embellishment to the simple box form is the addition of a projecting gable, centered on the house's entry. Sometimes the facade beneath the gable, or pediment, remains on the same plane as the rest of the facade, while sometimes it projects slightly forward.

Federal houses in the Northern U.S. tend to be built with clapboard siding, often painted white,  with details like doors and shutters painted black.

In the Southern U.S., or in urban row house variations, these homes tend to be built with brick.

Federal-style homes typically emphasize the cornice (horizontal trim that marks the crown of a building element, like a wall or a window) with decorative molding, most typically toothlike dentils or blocklike projections.
