Underhill Center house description

WELCOME!
Mansfield House, a lovely and spacious mountain home, sits on 100+ acres of classic Vermont property. Located at the base of Mt. Mansfield and nearby Smugglers Notch, a vacation here is filled with a wide range of seasonal activities for the active and the relaxed.

BEDROOM HIGHLIGHTS
There are two sleeping areas at opposite ends of the house. Two bedrooms (queen and king beds) are at the northern end of the house, with a shared bathroom featuring a field stone wall, tile, and walk-in shower. The southern end of the house features a bunkroom and queen bedroom with a shared bathroom featuring a Vermont slate floor, vessel sink, and tub/shower. Also at this end of the house is the Master bedroom with queen sleigh bed and a large en suite bathroom with walk-in shower and sweeping view of Mount Mansfield. There is also a twin bedroom, with an additional twin trundle, and a desk in the Airplane room at this end of the house. All the bedrooms have been recently renovated.


INTERIOR HIGHLIGHTS
The interior features cathedral ceilings, a large living room with field stone fireplace, and a field stone wall in the dining area, as well as wide oak and brick floors. Lovely views delight visitors from every window.

An open kitchen/dining area is at the center of the house. The 12-person birdseye maple dining room table has a sweeping view of Mt. Mansfield. This open area is wonderful for group cooking and socializing while enjoying the colors of a magnificent sunset.

There is a den off the kitchen with a second fireplace, sofa bed, and a second TV - nice for movies, cozy chats, or quiet reading. This space is also wonderful for children's movies, board games, or a quick escape from the bustle of the household.

We also take great pride in a very clean house - all the rooms are cleaned professionally using only all natural products.

OUTDOOR HIGHLIGHTS
The outdoor hot tub is available for soaking, while gazing up at Mt. Mansfield, or the stars.

A beautiful field above the pond is suitable for a large tent for hosting family reunions, small weddings, and other events.

The two acre swimming pond, sandy beach, beautifully landscaped lawns and gardens, and walking/XC skiing (or snowshoe) trails offer both activity and quiet, suitable for the energetic and the serene.

Looking for the country life and time with family or friends? You will love this setting.

Two very popular Vermont destinations are close:Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Factory is 30 minutes away, and the Shelburne Museum, a large and fascinating 'living' museum is 45 minutes away. Lake Champlain, UVM, and St. Michaels College are all within easy reach. Hunting is possible in the area but not on the property please. Space for badminton, croquet, and soccer behind house, visible from kitchen and living room. Large swimming pond in front field.

                  Year Purchased: 1965

                  About: Built in 1965, Mansfield House is owned by a large Vermont family that enjoys seasonal visits here for hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, and swimming. Our parents/grandparents designed and built the property, and as a result Mansfield House has the feel of a visit to a family home. Photos of the family decorate one long hallway, and the Airplane room hints of the adventurous aviation history of Granddad's days as a pilot. The gardens and clear view to the mountain still reflect the family's love of beautiful outdoor spaces.
