I am a children's therapist in Silver Spring, MD and Washington, DC. I spend part of July and August at the Vermont property.
I have been staying at the property upon which the new home is located since it was purchased by family in the 1950's. I have enjoyed summers in the area since childhood. The new house is located on a hilltop with ideal vistas of the Green Mountains of Vermont, with views from Jay Peak to Mount Mansfield.
I enjoy access to local markets for fruits and vegetables, for dinners and preserves. In addition, shopping at very unique local country stores always has surprises. There are a variety of outdoor activities offered by the setting and nearby communities. With my hobbies of gardening, reading and knitting, I value my summer retreats in this home. I enjoy the walking and hiking trails in the area, and also have many friendships in the community. We like to host family reunions with spectacular sunsets and mountain views.
