Pawlet house description

Up a winding private driveway, flanked by maple trees lies this beautiful quiet and secluded mountainside post-and-beam home. Surrounded by 30 acres of forest, with views through the trees, the house sits high above the valley floor. The trees, birds and wildlife serenade you by day, while the quiet solitude lulls you to sleep at night. Large deck, living room and separate family room, plus private office with computer. Extensive private hiking/snowshoeing trails from just outside the back yard. All amenities, casually but tastefully furnished.


More Details: The house is located about 1/3 of the way up and into a 30 acre property, which means you are deep in the woods with no one else around. The land slopes up reasonably steeply to where the house is, and then flattens out above it. You could walk out of the house, and hike for 10 miles without seeing another person or house (I've done this).

The house itself is a post and beam three level house. The first level has two bedrooms, laundry room, and a playroom that includes a couch, TV and DVD player, and a video game player as well.

The playroom opens up and out onto the hillside, and the driveway as it snakes down to the town road. A slate patio sits outside, along with a grassy hillside.

The second level has a bathroom with shower, an office (where the crib is). The rest of the second floor is wide open, the living room soars up 2 stories, the dining area is encased in glass above and on 2 sides, and the open kitchen is well equipped.

More Details (cont..): In the living room are a large couch, a second smaller couch, a 24' TV, and a DirecTV video system.

On the second floor, a large deck wraps around the house. The deck overlooks the hills, the trees, and really makes you feel like you are living in a tree house. A table and chairs are there for outdoor dining, along with two other chairs and a gas weber grill.

On the third level - a master bedroom with king size bed, a full bathroom with tub, and another bedroom with a loft bed - queen size, and underneath a smaller couch, and room for either an inflatable bed, or the crib.

The house itself is all built in wood. Huge hand-hewn pine timbers are exposed in post and beam style. The floors are wide pine planks, while the walls and ceiling/sloping roof is painted white sheetrock.

Wildlife abounds. Birds chirp and flit about. Owls hoot and hunt at night. Turkey, deer, chipmunks and many other animals are all around. A nice hiking trail loops around from outside the back door

Testimonials: Jim, thanks for a wonderful time in Vermont. The house was lovely. The snow was beautiful. Peace and solitude. .............and those alpacas were the best (there is a one week old baby now too!)

Randall and the Thanksgiving gang.
---------------------

Sue and I just spent 5 wonderful, cool and relaxing weeks in this beautiful house. We were surrounded by woods and greeted daily by the songs of birds.

The house felt like home and our two sons could visit with their families and find spacious bedrooms - even toys for the grandchildren. Our young grandchildren loved the deck because they were able to go in and out of the house at will and play without getting into trouble or falling. Our sons want us to do this again next year.

                          Beautiful post and beam house sits high above the valley floor. The expansive porch and windows make it seem like you're in a tree fort in the summer, and on top of the world in the winter. Then step out of the front door and onto your very own private hiking/snowshoe trail that snakes through our 30 wooded acres. In the middle of rural southern Vermont, but close to great restaurants, outlet shopping and even Lake George. 35 minutes to Bromley, Killington and Stratton; 20 minutes to Manchester. 10 minutes to Lake St. Catherine and the shops and restaurants of historic Dorset. A perfect place for family and friends to get away and enjoy beautiful Vermont!
