About Melissa Leach
We are only the 5th owner of this beautiful home built in 1869. We operated our business and raised our family here for 20 years. With our family grown, we now live elsewhere but wanted to share the lovely character of the home with visitors and give a base for experiencing the local recreation, activities, and community.
Melissa Leach purchased this House in 1995
Why Melissa Leach chose Lyndon
This home has been lovingly cared for by each family that resided here. It been evaluated to the equal of a 12 year old home. The antique classic character of the foil wallpaper, wooden staircases, plaster ceiling medallions and moldings is meshed with comforts of modern living. It is spacious but cozy. It has hosted weddings and memorials, and countless spectacular holidays. The 11 foot ceilings make room for an enormous Christmas tree. The Carriage house was a playhouse, a wood working shop after is served its purpose as a barn for horses and carriage storage. The vintage garden plantings still flourish. It is a center for wonderful living in a region that is beautiful and unique.
