Stowe house description

A quintessential ski house. This place has it all: a great location-smack in between the mountain and the town, a hot tub, lots of bedrooms (6) so everyone has their own room and no one is on pullouts, a huge great room that can accomodate your whole group, a 2nd family room with a computer, video games, pool table, ipod ready stereo, DVD player, internet TV via Roku.

If the younger generation needs their own space there is a separate family room on the lower floor. But most importantly the house is warm, cozy yet spacious feeling.

We keep improving the house. This year we totally renovated the kitchen with new appliances, granite counters and new cabinetry. Last year we put in hardwood floors on the main living areas and the year before we added a 50 jet 6 person hot tub, a huge leather comfy sectional and a master bedroom set with a king sized tempurpedic type mattress. This is our second home and we improve it every year with the proceeds form the prior year's rentals.

Our house is located about half way between the Mt. Mansfield and the town. Just 5 minutes from the first slopes and 8 to the main mountain. It is below most of the commercial activity on Mountain road but just a walk to our favorite pub, Gracies. You can also walk to Stowes award winning rec path.In the summer it is Stowe's Grand boulevard swinging by nature, farm land, swimming holes and cafes where you can catch a libation. Last season the town groomed it for X-country and you can take it all the way to town. In warmer weather it is a great walking or running path. We have a 3 mile loop using the path for our morning jogs.

Our 3250 square foot Deck House features post and beam construction, exposed Douglas fir beams, wooded tongue and groove cathedral ceilings and expansive glass panel windows created to frame views and invite the outdoors in. This midcentury modernist chalet takes advantage of the natural hillside by merging it into the existing land contours for minimal disruption of the site's natural beauty. Its architecture was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright incorporating his design concepts by blending its spaces together creating a great feeling of openness while at the same time feeling warm and intimate. There is a preservationist movement afoot recognizing this brand of architecture.

The house features expansive upper and lower family living areas each with a fireplace. Two bedrooms are big enough to be considered master bedrooms. One has its own bathroom. An additional bedroom has a queen bed, two bedrooms each have a pair of twins and there is one single. The pool room also has a day bed.

The windows are situated to connect to the natural environment to make people feel they are living in the outdoors. Interior spaces flow freely, accented by a rich combination of natural wood. A fully equipped galley kitchen compliments a dining area suitable for 12. Its two car garage keeps snow off your car and there is plenty of additional parking. A mud room is just off the parking area to reboot and store skis indoors. It is has wonderful gathering spaces and can comfortably accommodate a fun loving crowd with its pool room and piano.

The upper living room has a huge screened fireplace, HD TV, surround sound home theater system with cd/dvd, ipod dock and cable. This year we added a ROKU connection where you can access up to 700 channels fro streaming programming. If you have your netflix account or other similar service you can stream movies. If you wanted to set one up yourself netflix charges you just $7.99. It comes equipped with high speed wireless connection and a computer. It is located in a private wooded setting on an acre of land - convenient to everything in Stowe. If you are checking out lots of house it is important to be on the mountain side of town because traffic can get pretty backed up in the center of town both getting to the mountain and leaving. The shuttle stops at the end of the road and is a 5 minute walk should one want to come home from skiing early.

We are also a short walk (10 Minutes) from a hiking trial system preserved by the Stowe Land Trust, the Weissman Woods. This system links up with the famous Catamount trial which runs the length of Vermont and can take you to the top of Spruce Peak. These trails are great fro both hiking and cross country skiing. We even keep a few sets of snow shoes in the garaage to use on the trails. Feel the warmth this wonderful home has to offer.

                  We are less than 10 minutes to Mt. Mansfield. The shuttle stops at the end of our road, just a 5 minute walk. The hiking and swimming holes in the summer are spectacular and close by.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: We are a ski and outdoor loving family. Our three kids are prodigious alpine racers with one racing D 1 and his younger brother and sister are trying to get there. We love skiing which you can by admiring our collection of antique skis and the 1st T-Bar in North America. This house is just perfect if you want to get to slopes quickly and snag a powder day when everyone else is hung up being too far away.

                  Why the Owner Chose Stowe:
                  Stowe has the best skiing and is best mountain town, bar none, in the east. The house is set on an acre of land into a hillside just off Mountain Road less than 4 miles away from Mt. Mansfield. If a group need to split up (someone want to stop skiing early or go shopping) the town's shuttle service can drop you off at the end of our street and it's a short walk to the house. The house is located in the one of America's first ski communities built when the golden age of skiing dawned in the sixties. It is a 'deck house' design and the are several others in Stowe of the same vintage. There are several retro features that have luckily been preserved. A 'deck house' is an architectural design where the roof and ceiling system is wholly supported by the exterior walls. The upper level ceiling is natural wood and exposed structural wood beams give it a warm and open feeling. The house also has 2 generously sized family rooms. The upper level is off the eating area and the lower level is just underneath it adjacent to the pool/game room. Fire wood is provided. If part of your brood is exuberant and late nighters the expansiveness of the house lets everyone do their thing without disturbing someone who wants a more peaceful experience. It is very close to the mountain, under a 10 minute drive.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We love being right in the middle of all Stowe has to offer but on a private secluded hill. We have teeneagers and it is nothing to drop them off or pick them up at the Mountain or the movies.
