              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: During the week, I live in NYC, but try to spend as many weekends up in Vermont as possible. I bought the house in 2008 when I returned to the NY area in order to give myself a retreat away from all the stress of NYC. I'm always making improvements to the house (new pictures coming soon!), and it just keeps getting better and better. It's a wonderful unique house that lends itself perfectly to spending time with friends and family. I've truly enjoyed every minute spent there and I am sure you will too!

              Why the Owner Chose Manchester Center:
              I have wonderful memories of spending time in Vermont with my family as a child. When I was looking for a weekend house, Manchester just seemed like the perfect fit. It's a year round community that offers the best outdoor activities during any season. Additionally, the people are so welcoming and I always feel relaxed in these suroundings. When you get to the house, the stress of every day life just seems to melt away.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The house is just minutes away from many activities. We are located at the base of Equinox Mountain, with the trail-head literally a 5 minutes walk from our front door. In addition, we are within walking distance to shopping, Hildene, Equinox Resort, golf, tennis, and so much more. With that said, the house is so inviting and enjoyable that it can sometimes be difficult to leave for any reason.
