My mom and dad loved Burke and the Northeast Kingdom. My dad was an Aeronautical Engineer at Pratt and Whitney—(A United Technologies (UTX) company). They searched for about two years for “a view”. In 1995 they located the prize property. He designed the home and construction began two years later. He designed and oversaw the construction of the house you are considering renting.
Matt purchased this house in 1990
Why Matt chose Burke
The house was built with 360 degree views. Northern winters and western winds necessitated the planting of 250 trees on the west side for a windbreak. The trees are now about 40’ tall and protect the house. The house is about one mile off Rt 5, five miles from Burke Mountain and seven miles from Exit 22 on Rt. 91. At the top of the paved (yes that’s how the locals knew my parents were “flatlanders”) 100 yard driveway there is parking for about 10 cars including two indoors under the house.
What makes this house unique
Should power go out, a full-house generator was installed in December 2012.
