This is Vermonters Vermont: the wildest, most pristine part of the state. The land time forgot-- and thats the way we like it. It has more lakes per square mile than anywhere else in the state, and that means more fish, animals, birds, and all kinds of wildlife, moose included. It's the cheese capital of the state--more cheese made per capita that anywhere else. It's a place of dazzling sunsets, sweet-smelling air, and astonishing beauty. The farm-to-table revolution there never needed to happen- people have been treating the earth gently for generations and the local produce and food is delicious and honest. It is a place to leave the cares of the world far, far behind, to dream, to be calm and at peace. It's got a magic that comes dropping slow, and does a body good.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: My husband and I built this house just before the birth of our first child. (Her brother came along two years later.) We built it well, with the finest materials, to last for our lifetime and theirs. It was big to start with but, well, the exhilaration of our friends who came to stay and thought it so fantastic got my husband a little excited and he 'added on' in true Vermont fashion with a 1000-foot master suite a few years later. We spend every Thanksgiving and Christmas there and a chunk of summer, and during ski season vacations, and also try to get up for sugaring late March, or the opening of fishing season in April and for garden weekend in June, when we plant and weed our vegetables. In other words, any time we can! Every part of the year is special and beautiful and maybe, someday soon, we will just be there forever. The dream of Vermont keeps us happy in our urban life on the waterfront of Brooklyn!

Why the Owner Chose Barton, VT, USA:
The house has a special relation with the outdoors- the many large windows make you feel like you are walking into nature at all times, connected to the landscape. It has the MOST spectacular vista, 180 degree views out 80 miles over 3 ranges, and to watch a summer electric storm coming towards you from the west is one of God's great cinematic creations. It doesn't get any more beautiful than this. The inside is both comfy and elegant, filled with rather gorgeous or just cool things collected in our travels, and plenty of books and music. The sauna after a day in the snow is so healing (makes your muscles feel so pampered and relaxed) and the summer walks on all our miles of trails and swimming, kayaking or fishing in the ponds, a huge trampoline and tightrope line for the kids etc, make for endless fun.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
It's large but cosy; it is opulent but comfortable; it has all you need but a beautifully edited selection of it. It's a very nice house, created to be livable, not stuffy. Can be combined with our farmhouse (sleeps 8 but rented through AUGUST 2017) , or coming in Fall 2016, my brother and sister-in-law's sweet one-room schoolhouse (sleeps 4), also down the road.
