http://www.WoodstockProperties.com - This is a rare opportunity to acquire one of Woodstock Vermonts most prestigious historic estates.

Wyman Hill is one of the largest private tracts of land in close proximity, 5 minutes, to the quintessential Village of Woodstock, with its myriad of art galleries, fine shops, dining options, and performing and cultural arts activities.

At the height of the wooded portion of the land, 360 degree views of the Vermont countryside are enjoyed.

The numerous exterior improvements include substantial land enhancement projects to clear for views and habitat.
