Monticello house description

Very charming three story house in a beautiful valley on a dirt road .6 miles from a major road leading to a simple but sophisticated town 2 miles away. There you will find really good restaurants, a movie theater, a bowling alley and an excellent wine and cheese shop.

There is almost no car traffic on this road. Foundation and feeling is 100 years old but renovated 20 and then 12 years ago. Outside has fruit trees, a large back patio with flower garden, vegetable garden, some shade, and of course a large barbecue.

The front of the house facing the street has a large covered porch: wonderful on rainy days. There are 3 full bathrooms on each floor. Bottom floor has 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, and opens with a private entrance to the road.

The middle level has the kitchen, another bathroom, and open living-room/dining-room. The kitchen opens onto the patio at the back of the house and from the living-room onto the covered porch at the front of the house.

The wood-burning stove, because of its position in the living room functions as a fire-place. The master bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a bedroom with bunk-beds, and a bedroom with a trundle-bed are on the 3rd floor.

The bathroom here is particularly lovely with a large antique footed bathtub. Decor is antiques but not precious ones. It is cozy, casual and people find it very relaxing. In winter there is downhill skiing 40 minutes away at a nice mountain with a excellent ski school for both children and adults. Horseback riding is 2 minutes away

This property is perfect for both couples and families.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1997

          About the owner: My husband and myself realized as we were living in Manhattan that we missed the peace, quiet and beauty of the country.

          Why the Owner Chose Monticello:
          We rented several vacation properties in the usual places for New Yorkers before choosing this area. We chose this area because there was much less traffic than going to Long Island or to the Berkshires and it is for us much more laid back and much less crowded.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Naturally beautiful, beautiful, and beautiful without being too far from civilization and amenities. And we do have 20 acres and a forest..
