This property has everything you could possibly imagine for a true Vermont vacation experience: charming, carefully restored farmhouse with every modern comfort and convenience. Located just off the main road minutes north of Stowe village, this home has incredible 360 degree views of Mt. Mansfield and surrounding mountain ranges and is situated on a prime 10 acre parcel of land with private pond for swimming or boating and beautifully maintained pathways for taking in the mountain views.
A brand new custom kitchen with granite countertops is at the heart of the open floor plan that perfectly integrates old and new: from the farmhouse porch in front to the original hand hewn beams and restored fireplace in the living room to the brand new deck in rear with private - and picturesque - views of the pond, horse pastures and sunsets over Mt. Mansfield – the highest peak in Vermont.
The house features six bedrooms and three bathrooms - including a private two bedroom suite that is perfect for families with small children who need extra space. The bedrooms are all bright, sunny and loaded with charm, from original wide plank floors and antique farmhouse doors to tastefully decorated furnishings. Every room affords breathtaking open views of the beautiful surrounding meadows, pasture lands and mountainscapes.
