Taken 12/20-1/10. Our custom built home is located in Killington on an acre of land, on a paved town road with other vacation homes. A second story has been added to make it bigger and even better.
The house now has a large kitchen-dining area on the first floor with a 24' cathedral ceiling, along with 3 BRs, 1 &1/2 baths, an indoor sauna, and a shower room for two. A 'sun burst' pattern of antique skis & bamboo poles is displayed on one wall, with more antique skis and snowshoes displayed on other walls.
The new second floor has a bedroom, full bath, a living area which extends the length of the house (40') and includes a sleeping alcove with a pull-out sofa. There are two other sofas (one a pull-out), several chairs & a recliner as well. The living area affords a winter view of the Green Mountains beyond the trees. A sliding glass door exits onto a large deck which descends to another deck facing the woods. The living area extends 17' into the house to a balcony overlooking the dining area.
I am a retired teacher, and my wife is a retired nurse/Lamaze instructor. We live in a small village in Rockland County, New York. We are both very active in our community, and continue to work part time.
We bought the land in 1968, and built our house in 1979, adding a second story in 2004 to accommodate our growing family. We have three grown children and six grandchildren, and our Vermont home acts as a gathering point several times a year when we all get together to ski and relax.
What sets our Killington home apart from most others is the incredible spaciousness of the living areas.
