Constructed in 1823, this four story, 10,000 square foot building, occupies a prominent location atop the Middlebury green, adjacent to the historic courthouse. Built originally as a commercial block, the building has served many purposes, including housing the Town’s offices and later, the Masonic Hall.  Jeff was selected to work with the Vermont Community Foundation and the Vermont Folklife Center to structure a joint venture among the two non-profit organizations to acquire and fully rehabilitate the building. The project’s finishes and furnishings feature the work of Vermont craftspeople.

We were real estate rookies and Jeff pulled it all together. He proved to be a tremendous resource for us. I especially appreciated his discipline and seriousness of purpose.
