Michael J. Fox's Former Country Estate

Actor Michael J. Fox got his big break on the big screen when he landed the role of Marty McFly in the 1985 film Back to the Future, which tells the story of a teenager who inadvertently travels back in time. In 1988, Fox took another excursion into the past, this time purchasing an early 19th-century farm in the heart of Vermont horse country.

Formerly Owned By: Emmy-winning actor Michael J. Fox
Listed By: Lang McLaughry Spera
Price: $2,750,000

Encompassing 121 acres, the centerpiece of the pastoral property is a 16-room Federal-style brick house, built in 1817 by Salmon Hoisington (supposedly from his winnings in the Louisiana lottery). The impeccably maintained residence still boasts period details in every room, from the elegant crown molding in the living room to the brick fireplace with beehive oven in the dining room. But the home isn't totally devoid of modern luxuries: An elevator provides access to the second floor, and four of the home's six bedrooms come with private bathrooms.

In 1990, Fox built a Cape Cod-style guesthouse on the farm, taking care to complement the historic nature of the property. Other features of the estate include a fenced pasture, a riding ring, an in-ground pool and a large barn with a one-bedroom apartment.

While Fox hasn't owned the property for many years, the sellers are still hoping his celebrity will help lure in a buyer: The listing description proudly declares him as a previous owner.
