Dorset house description

Our house is beautifully situated on top of a hill in a clearing. Large covered porch faces east across a meadow towards the Green Mountain National Forest and the notch carved by the Mad Tom Brook. The other side of the house has peaceful views into the forest and beautiful rock outcroppings. The property has been in the family since the 1940's, however this house is new, built in 2011 with modern comforts.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1944

                      About the owner: My family has owned the 11 acre property since 1944. We spent every summer here growing up, hiking in the mountains and swimming in the local quarries, picking apples up the road in the fall, perusing the local antique stores. Several generations have enjoyed the beauty of the stunning autumn foliage, vigorous spring and lazy summers. Last year we decided to build a new year-round house with the modern conveniences to continue our tradition.

                      Why the Owner Chose Dorset:
                      This location is a perfect combination of meadow, lawn and forest. The house is set back from the road to offer privacy and serenity. It is less than a mile from the Summer Festival Horse Show and within 30 minutes of 5 Golf Courses and 2 miles from Emerald Lake State Park. It is close to VT Rte 7 providing easy access to Manchester, 6 miles away, or Bennington or Rutland, both about 22 miles away.
