About William Brokhof
Red Acre Cottage is a dream come true. I have been visiting Vermont for a long time. I was introduced to Vermont on a road trip with my parents while I was in my teens. Vermont seemed magical compared to the Ozark region of southern Missouri, where I grew up. I had never seen mountains, let alone ski slopes and the sparkly winters of storybooks. I had never experienced historic architecture, and I knew little of the East Coast or the role it had played in the founding of our nation. I fell in love with New England then, not knowing I would someday be back and call it my home. I moved to Boston when I was about 20, I think. I absorbed the city for about 4 years and then followed my wanderlust to Europe for a spell, working for a bicycle tour company. I got homesick and came back to Boston knowing I needed to "get on with it", although I hadn't a clue what that meant. I worked for a summer on the commuter ferrys in Boston Harbor and studied for my real estate exam. I passed my test, and created, The Boston Home Team and a 20+ year career in real estate. As a young adult, I spent my summers camping along Vermont's rivers and climbing its mountains. I dreamed of owning my own home here someday. Now I do. A new adventure has begun. In our young adulthood, while Emily spent many winters skiing with friends and family on the slopes of Killington, Stowe, Jay Peak, and Okemo, I spent my summers camping along Vermont's rivers and climbing its mountains. I dreamed of owning my own home here someday.

Why William Brokhof chose Rochester
Red Acre Cottage is one of a kind. It's what I call a "Goldilocks" home. It's just right. It has the look and feel of Olde New England, with all the comfort of a modern home. It is also environmentally sustainable. It is powered by electric, propane and wood that was harvested locally. The propane heat is under lock and key and kept at about 58 degrees. This is to insure the pipes don't freeze in the winter, and that a fossil fuel isn't wasted if someone were to leave the heat on when they leave. There is a catalytic wood stove that could easily heat a space twice as large. In addition, I have several electric heat options that are mobile if you prefer. Red Acre Cottage is solar powered and has a Tesla battery. In addition, I have taken several water saving and filtration measures to make sure I am conserving the Earth's precious resources and providing a pleasant experience at the same time.
