Designed by Architects Henry Otis Chapman & Son, The Collins House was built in 1940 for Frederic Collins. Frederic was a Wall Street lawyer residing on Manhattan's Upper East Side. His U.S. Naval experience led him to be increasingly certain that the U.S. would be drawn into WW II. He chose Shaftsbury, VT for its remoteness yet still relatively accessible to New York. The Chapmans were highly regarded for their work during the period 1900-1940, particularly country houses on Long Island. The Collins House fits well into the Vermont landscape. It exhibits some restrained but classic late Art Deco details , including lighting fixtures , fireplace surrounds and entrance porch . Situated on a knoll in the foothills of the Green Mountains, the house affords remarkable views deep into the Adirondacks to the West, and South to the Berkshires. The 162 +/- acre property includes about 100 acres of mature mixed hardwoods and 40 acres of open meadows producing high-quality hay annually. Most of the acreage is enrolled in the Vermont Active Use Program. Development rights to 146 acres are held by the Vermont Land Trust, thus ensuring the continued pastoral nature of the property. Two separate sites for future homes have been reserved within this acreage. The orchard comprises about 82 fruit trees producing pears and four varieties of apples. Option to purchase with less acreage available.
