Property description

Find a peaceful and private retreat 10 miles south of Wilmington at this beautiful post and beam home located high on a hill with a stunning, panoramic view of the surrounding Green Mountains of Vermont.

Come here to enjoy a genuine and rustic Vermont experience. Whether you are skiing Mount Snow, leaf peeping, exploring Brattleboro or writing or painting, we invite you to experience this special and unique setting.

This twenty-five acre property includes brooks, stone walls, woodlands, wildlife and open vistas. A wrap-around deck, screened porch and windows galore all allow you to enjoy the view. Seasonal furniture and a gas grill are provided on the deck. A wood-burning stove, which is inserted into a floor to ceiling brick chimney, will offer warmth and cheer.

Plenty of comfortable space to spread out and relax with your family. House sleeps five adults in the three bedrooms. Up to 4 children may be accommodated in the basement. Roll away bed and crib available. Master suite has a queen, 2nd bedroom a queen, and 3rd bedroom a twin.

Master suite is upstairs, off the loft, and includes a skylight over the queen size bed, a private balcony for star gazing, and a master bath with a large whirlpool tub and separate step-in shower.

Keep in touch, if need be, with fast WIFI, land line with unlimited domestic long distance, and fax machine. Unlike many remote retreats your cell phone will most likely have reception here on top of the hills. Satellite TV, free streaming Netflix video w/unlimited movies, and quality stereo system are all for your pleasure.

This is as close to perfect seclusion as you can find, and still be conveniently located. Accessible to Brattleboro, a cultural center; historic Bennington; the artists’ village of Shelburne Falls, MA and three miles from quaint Jacksonville, VT. Jacksonville is the home of the Jacksonville General Store where you will find local produce, a custom butcher shop, Vermont cheeses and a selection of wines. Lake Whitingham (Harriman Reservoir) which offers beautiful beaches, boating ( including canoeing and kayaking) is only five miles north of Jacksonville.

It all adds up to a perfect combination of peace and quiet and accessibility in a comfortable home in a spectacular setting. Bring your kids and your dog and have a family adventure, or make it your romantic hideaway, a secluded spot for artistic pursuits or a launching pad for your athletic interests. Welcome and enjoy!
