Property description

The Timber Frame Home is a tall posted cape traditionally constructed with mortise & tendon joinery. The TF Home features an oiled hemlock frame, and is trimmed in cedar inside & out. Ammenities include: large/deep hot tub on deck, custom slate pool table, Home Theatre, 2 beautiful gas fireplaces, gourmet kitchen, and lots of leather furniture. An outside Bent Stave Cedar Barrel Sauna is mounted on a convenient custom deck extension.

Yesterday's craftsmanship is blended with today's technology to provide large open living spaces with soaring cathedral ceilings amid beautiful woodwork & lots of windows.

We are high atop Blush Hill in Waterbury just south of Stowe centrally located to Stowe, Sugarbush, Mad River Glenn & Bolton Valley. The best skiing, boarding, X-C skiing, snow shoeing and snowmobiling in Vermont! The rest of the year there is great hiking, boating, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, golf, craft beer pubs & breweries, fine dinning, and fall leaf peeping. Beautiful Waterbury Reservoir is at the bottom of the Hill. The 'Reservoir' is unique in offering zoned Quiet Use & Motorboat areas for great fishing, canoeing, and water skiing (2 slalom courses) all surrounded by the scenic Mt. Mansfield Forest.
NOTE: The Timber Frame Home is a SMOKE FREE environment
