Owner info

About the owner: We, Joe and Claudia, have lived in this area for most of our lives. Claudia grew up sailing on Lake Champlain, and moved back here after living abroad. Joe moved here from western New York State in the mid 90s.

Why the Owner Chose Colchester, VT, USA:
The land here was an undiscovered gem. Joe learned about it, and he came out to climb trees to find the perfect spot for our home. We built our home with the help of Joe's best friend and best man at our wedding, John, who is an architect. Here you get the best of all worlds - a sense of peace and beauty, with views that still stop us in our tracks in awe - a feeling of being secluded while also knowing there are good neighbors and lots of amenities, especially Burlington, close by.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We LOVE our home and have taken care of it over the years, adding special touches and unique pieces from our travels. We chose to live and act with quality, integrity, and responsibility. Our home reflect this. We our enjoy taking care of our property so it appreciates with time. Claudia also feels that our home is founded on the special bond of friendship between Joe and John, one that began when they were 10 years old and is filled with deep trust and generosity.
