Albany house description

If you’re interested in exploring the “green” side of the Green Mountain State, this solar-powered geodesic dome is a completely different Vermont experience. Of course, you’ll still have privacy and the quiet serenity of nature surrounding you. Four downhill ski areas will still be within a forty-minute drive, and the Craftsbury Nordic Center will be ten minutes away with its miles of cross-country skiing.

In the summer, you’ll be a short distance from lakes, rivers, the Canadian border, seven golf courses, the Long Trail for hiking, road biking, mountain biking, fishing, boating, and any outdoor sport you can imagine. Stowe, St. Johnsbury, and Newport, Vermont are all just a short drive away.

Inside the house, you’ll experience living “off the grid” in a space filled with tropical plants and banks of south-facing windows that overlook a magnificent view. You’ll discover that living green still means having access to phone, high speed Internet, Directv, and a 46-inch flat screen television.

The dome is highly insulated and heated beautifully with radiant floors, but also has a parlor stove in the living room for ambiance during long winter nights. There’s a baby grand piano in the living room.

A wraparound deck outside overlooks a beautifully landscaped perennial garden, a pond, a second sundeck, and hundreds of acres of forest and trails. The property is bordered on two sides by year-round brooks and waterfalls.
