  • Price: $1.6 million

Built in 1845, this home -- known as "Glimmerstone" -- sits on 2.4 acres in Cavendish, about 25 miles south of Woodstock, Vt.

Why it's on the register: Boasting 14 gables, it's an incredible example of Gothic Revival architecture. It was built for Henry Fullerton, who ran a local cloth mill, says Debra Staniscia, broker with Vermont Country Properties -- Sotheby's International Realty.

What makes it memorable: "People are blown away by the quality, the architecture and the features," she says. "And the name comes from the mica stone from which it was built -- sparkling local stone."

The home, which has gone through a two-year restoration, has its original wide-plank flooring, eight working fireplaces and "beautiful arched hallways," Staniscia says.

Currently a bed-and-breakfast, it can be sold with the commercial-grade kitchen appliances and period furnishings for $1.6 million, or without for $1.2 million, she says.

The lower level also boasts an English pub. And a flagstone patio with fire pit and hot tub is a popular site for weddings, Staniscia says.

The property also has "a huge barn" that is used for events, she says.
