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.
