Best known for his Hollywood portrayals of gun-slingers, policemen and
the all-around "tough-guy," Charles Bronson was beloved by Tinseltown
for his famous roles in westerns and crime-fighting
movies. He starred in classics such as "Once Upon a Time in the West,"
"The Magnificent Seven" and "The Dirty Dozen." Even though Bronson's
roles were rough-and-tumble, his real life was fulfilled by owning and
running an astoundingly peaceful 300-acre Vermont farm for more than 30
years. The Bronson Farm was designed for horse lovers, with both indoor
and outdoor arenas as well as 22 stalls for the horses. The brick main
house, built in the Federal style, was constructed in 1796 and updated
with a solarium garden room, elevator and a large, second-level guest
suite. Original features of the home, such as a grand living room with
marble-surround fireplace, kitchen with butler's pantry and a master
suite with two period fireplaces have all been restored to their
original beauty for the modern homeowner.
