About the Property

3500 Sq.Ft, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7

The Red Studio House is a 3500 square-feet industrial modern home with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. It was designed as an artist studio by a renowned VT architect and was the winner of the 2002 AIA Vermont Excellence in Architecture Award/Red Studios--Adler House.

The 25 acres of picturesque Land Trust acreage include open space, woods, a river, and a clean, deep, spring-fed pond (18 feet at it deepest point). This is a quiet & incredibly beautiful place where you can xc ski/hike/bike right from the front door, roam hundreds of contiguous acres, or just sit on the porch and enjoy the magnificent view of the Adirondack Mountains.

Our quaint Town of Waltham is 45 minutes from Mad River and Sugarbush ski areas; 1 hour from Stowe or Killington; 45 minutes to Adirondacks; 35 minutes to Burlington; 15 minutes to Middlebury and 2 miles from Vergennes. All of these locations offer excellent restaurants and interesting shops.

The driveway is plowed during the winter, and firewood is provided. The house has propane gas heat (forced hot air) and a gas commercial cook stove. (AC available in master bedroom, only).

NOTE: June-August we usually do NOT rent for more than one week at a time--'tis gardening season.

The Green Room has a queen bed and is attached to a large room that offers an extensive library, an exercise area and private TV. A full bath is one floor up.
