Warren farmhouse description

Traditional Vermont farmhouse was completely renovated by architect-owner in 2007 to preserve the historic facade while creating a modern interior filled with light from floor-to-ceiling windows and ample open space. The house is can be divided into a main living space with living room, open kitchen, dining and family rooms, two second floor bedrooms with full bathroom + extra toilet and sinks, and a studio with first floor living room, kitchenette and full bathroom with jetted tub and a second floor bedroom. The house is situated directly on Kid Brook, a fast moving stream feeding the Mad River. Children under 14 are permitted to fish the brook; all ages can go wading.

Located in the historic village of Warren, VT, a short (1/3 mile) walk leads to the village center with its general store, antique and craft shops and the top rated (Relais and Chateaux) Pitcher Inn which offers fine dining or casual bar fare. We are located one mile from the access road to Sugarbush Ski Resort.

There is great shopping and dining in the Mad River Valley. Waitsfield (6 miles north on 100) has one of the best book stores we know about anywhere (not big - the owner seems to know every book in the place and they are well chosen). There is a well stocked natural foods store around the corner from the bookstore. There are 2 supermarkets. The wine shop on Route 100 in Waitsfield has some of the best selections and value that we have ever come across. Restaurants (The Common Man - up the access road - and Peasant on Bridge Street in Waitsfield ($$) or Local Folk and American Flatbread ($), both on Route 100.


Green Building Information: This house was designed to be highly energy efficient. The walls, ceiling and floors are super-insulated making it very cozy in winter; primary heating can be achieved by use of the 2 wood stoves with propane gas heating as a supplemental system. Multiple sliding glass doors and windows allow for pleasant air cooling in summer. Toilets are low water consumption. Local materials (Vermont slate floors and counters, barn-board wood) were used throughout.

Ski Information: There are 2 Downhill Ski resorts within 5 miles: Sugarbush/ Mt. Ellen access road is 1 mile up Route 100; Mad River Glen is 5 miles up Route 100. There are 2 Cross-country Ski parks at the top of Brook Road (less than 1 mile up Brook Road): Ole's and Blueberry Lake.

                      Historic Warren Village is located in the Mad River Valley. The village has its own covered bridge, general store, country inn with fine dining as well as a spa, antiques and craft stores. We are just outside the Green Mountain National Park and next to the Appalachian and Vermont Long Trails. In Summer there are many performing arts festivals (theatre, circus, movie, opera), arts and craft fairs, weekly farmers' market and horse riding competitions in addition to traditional outdoor activities. This is a thriving agricultural area with an active locavore restaurant scene. Surrounded by forests, Warren is famous for its Fall foliage display in late September-early October. Yestermorrow Design-Build School in Warren offers creative, educational workshops. In Winter there are two down-hill ski resorts (Sugarbush and Mad River Glen), two cross-country ski parks (Ole and Blueberry Lake), sledding (on a Mad River Rocket), ice-skating, snow-shoeing and winter hiking.

                      Other Activities: canoeing/kayaking

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: Architect practicing in Boston.

                      Why the Owner Chose Warren:
                      I bought the house in Warren because I think it is the best skiing in the northeast. It emphasizes intermediate to expert. Lots of moguls and glades if you like - and plenty of cruisers. Its trails, not bowl skiing. Sugarbush is 2 resorts (Sugarbush and Ellen) and there is a chair that goes back and forth or you can take the bus. Also Mad River Glen is the original in the area. Mad River Glen is famous for not making snow so in March the natural base actually skis better. We normally get the biggest snow dumps in late February through March. The Mad River valley is also not overdeveloped like Stowe and Killington.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                      Our house is in the town of Warren so everyone can walk (5 minutes) to the Warren Store for whatever. Across the street from the store is the Pitcher Inn for drinks, or dinner (pub $ fare downstairs, full $$$ fare upstairs). There are 2 cross country facilities with dozens of trails within a mile of the house and plenty of snowshoeing right outside the door.
