Manchester Center house description

For your Vermont get-away, a wonderful home away from home, welcoming, cozy, comfortable, with luxury details, and sited on the most impressive location in Manchester Village. The house abuts and overlooks the protected 40 acre Hildene Meadow, with mountain views, and gorgeous sunsets.

Our home is completely outfitted with the finest handmade furniture, the best of beds and linens, flat screen TV, game room, ping pong table, wood burning stove, central air, patio and a screened porch. Barbeque out back, watch the sun set over the mountains, enjoy an evening around the fire pit or gather together in the screened cottage.

We are three minutes from the Equinox Resort & Spa, the Hildene Estate, the Gleneagles Golf Course, and 15 minutes to Bromley, 25 minutes to Stratton Mountain, and 20 minutes to the Vermont Summer Festival Horse Show. A perfect location as we are 5 minutes to the center of Manchester offering shopping, restaurants, galleries, and antiquing, yet you will feel as though you are is the heart of the Vermont countryside.

With all the comforts of home this is the perfect location for a family gathering, or time spent with friends.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: This house was originally purchased to be part of the inventory for a high end vacation home club. It was furnished, outfitted, and detailed with this purpose in mind. The business was ultimately sold, but we retained the property. Our family has enjoyed many gatherings at this wonderful home, as have numerous guests. We welcome you to also enjoy a special experience in a home away from home.

              Why the Owner Chose Manchester Center:
              We sought a house in a location that had the feel of being among the mountains and meadows of Vermont, but not isolated. We are minutes away from everything, great restaurants, shopping, art galleries, antiquing, spas, and all the sports associated with the Vermont seasons.
