Arlington house description

380 ft of private BattenKill river frontage: This is a dream location for fly-fishers, kayakers, canoers, bikers, hikers, golfers, equestrians. But painters, photographers, writers will enjoy Norman Rockwell's village. The MASS MOCA, Dorset Horse Show, the outlets in Manchester, the Race track in Saratoga, Lake George.... are all with a short drive. Stratton and Bromley ski resorts are ca.12 -16 miles away.
Vermont with Charm, close to the NY and MA borders, 7 miles to Manchester and its outlets, restaurants. Close to Bromley and Stratton ski resorts, in a recreational area. This nicely furnished home is not 'just a rental.' It has a lot of character and style. There is not a better location on the Battenkill: watch the river, fish, and kayak or canoe from your own backyard, cook, enjoy life on the river.
The Home
The Kitchen was an 18th century one room house, the main core was built ca. 1840; the living room and Master bedroom are a 20th century addition.
UNIQUE: ca.100 feet from the water! And packed with a lot of fun, character, and light!
Older, refinished golden wooden floors in older construction, new woods (cherry and oak) in Addition. Brand new oil heat furnace (March 2010) and water baseboard radiators, two zones. Woodstove in Living-Room.
Upstairs: 2 Bedrooms, possibly 3 (using the Artist Studio 13ft/13ft). The Master Bedroom is ca. 13ft/21ft and boasts a new cherry floor, 3 large closets and a deck overlooking the river. Downstairs: Office (9ft/9ft), Dining-Room (12+ft/19ft) opening onto the River, onto the Kitchen through a Bar, onto the Office through French doors; Large and bright Living-room(13ft/21ft) opening onto the River through a deck…. A Bath and a Laundry/utility room are en suite of the Kitchen. Two porches and a deck face the river, the cows and horses, and the Village…
Also: House: ca. 1,700sq.feet, Land only: 0.48 acre but 380 feet of waterfront and the open lawn looks huge and great. Across from the Rec. Park: Public tennis, golf, ice rink, basketball court, health trail, swimming pool…
