Warren house description

Beautiful home and view-filled property, private end of the road location yet 5 minutes to town and 15 minutes to Sugarbush and Mad River Glen. Perfect for family reunions or a gathering of friends, sleeps 12-14. Filled with natural light, this gorgeous 5 BR home features oak pegged timber frame architecture, cherry hardwood floors inlaid with ash and maple, and spectacular mountain views. It is sited on a private 27 acre farm, with no other house in sight, in the heart of the Valley’s pastoral farm country. The home is tastefully decorated and boasts a layout ideally suited for families traveling together: a private bedroom level featuring two luxurious master bedrooms with cathedral ceilings and a glass and tile bath; a living level with an open floor plan comprised of two separate sitting/entertainment areas, dining room, chef’s kitchen and marble-topped woodstove; and a lower family level with three bedrooms, mosaic-tiled bath, fully equipped kitchen, and common room. HUGE innovative multi-level treehouse pavilion with entertainment deck and sleeping loft.

There are numerous amenities including a large mudroom, several flat screen TVs with DVD players, and an office with printer, fax, wireless high speed internet, and five-bar cell service (AT&T). The beautiful property, located at the end of a private road, features a large deck with panoramic views, expansive lawns, stone walls, perennial gardens and flowering trees, an organic vegetable and herb garden, firepit, blackberry patches, an A++ sledding hill and a sparkling stream. Also on the property is a fully-equipped equestrian facility with a run-in post and beam barn, several acres of grass fields, 60’ round pen, and outdoor kennel. Well behaved dogs considered on a case by case basis, with additional deposit. Can be easily equipped for babies (crib, changing table, high chair) with advance notice.

More about the house: This home is a perfect Vermont escape –you could enjoy your entire vacation simply relaxing on the deck, in the gardens, hiking around the property and surrounding landscape, or starwatching around the fire, listening to owls, moose calls and watching fireflies. It is also the perfect “home base” for those who want to explore all that the Mad River Valley has to offer. While extremely private, at the end of a private road with woods and farmland around, it is also only 5 minutes to downtown Waitsfield and 15 minutes to the Valley’s ski areas. The house is very spacious and intelligently laid out, equally comfortable for a couple or a large group of up to 14. Not in any way a sardine can “ski house”, there are ample bedroom and common spaces for everyone. For families traveling together, there are many possible configurations – each family can take a level and share the middle entertainment level, or the kids can have a “kid zone”, allowing the adults some quiet on the upper floors.

More about the Mad River Valley: On 27 picturesque acres surrounded by farmland, woods and trails, this property offers the ultimate in privacy and yet is only minutes from skiing, historic villages and other Mad River Valley activities. The Valley is known as a 'haven' for its 'scenic rural landscape and peaceful way of life' (The New York Times). While its legendary skiing on three mountains and extensive network of VAST snowmobiling and cross country trails attracts winter sports enthusiasts, unlike many other ski resorts the Valley is surprisingly free of crowds. Its pristine countryside and progressive community makes it a wonderful destination for everyone who after their first visit falls in love with its fresh air, natural beauty, and organic spirit. Summers offer arts festivals, farmers markets and a legendary 4th of July parade; kayaking, fishing and swimming in the beautiful Mad River; antiquing, shopping and dining on exquisite locally-grown fare as well as a myriad of activities from golfing to gliding.

Lots to Do in Summer: Set along historic scenic Route 100, the Mad River Valley is among the most beautiful places in the world. Driving tours are always full of beautiful scenery, as well as wonderfully unique and fun stops along the way. Hike the Long Trail, or the beautiful Mad River Path. Take a biking tour around the Valley roads or mountain bike its challenging mountain trails. See the views from horseback (Vermont Icelandic Horse Farm), a glider (glider rides at Sugarbush airport), or from an 800 foot zipline (Sugarbush Summer Recreation Center). In the summer, come for an afternoon dip in the Mad River's many swimming holes or a relaxing floats downriver in tubes. In the spring, kayakers take on the river, and year round fishermen enjoy the brook, rainbow and brown trout fishing it provides. The kids will enjoy trips to the many attractions in the surrounding area such as Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory, Shelburne Farms, Morse Maple Sugar Farm, or the Echo Museum.

                                  Other Activities: Miles of beautiful mountain bike and walking trails out the back door; enjoy tubing, kayaking, swimming in the Mad River; three ski areas minutes away

                                  Golf: A wonderful way to experience the natural beauty of the Vermont landscape is to play golf on one of its top-rated courses. With breathtaking views at every hole, you will be treated to a truly unforgettable golf experience. Choose from Sugarbush’s own Robert Trent Jones Jr. golf course, or any of a number of nationally renowned courses in the surrounding area.

                                  Ski: Called 'the Aspen of the East' (The New York Times,) the Mad River Valley claims 'the most widely varied ski terrain east of the Rockies”. Miles of legendary ski and ride terrain spill from its three interconnected mountain areas; over 150 trails, 2,600 feet of vertical and over 2,500 acres of wilderness terrain translate into adventure for all abilities. With a new 45,000 square-foot lodge bringing 'Western-style luxury' (The Boston Globe) to Sugarbush Resort, the area is at once luxurious and down-to-earth, offering every type of Vermont skiing experience. Mad River Glen (“Ski it if you can!”), with the last surviving diesel-powered single chair in North America, is famed for its outstanding back woods terrain, and is a mecca for telemark skiers. Cross country skiers and snowmobilers will enjoy the extensive VAST trails; try the Mad River Rocket for a truly unique sledding experience.
