About the Property

One-of-a-kind Home Perfect For 2 Families Or 1 Large Family, retreats or reunion

My home seamlessly blends the conveniences of modern life with the grand fit and finish of a by-gone era. Conveniently located in the Village walking distance to all the restaurants and shopping, yet only a short drive to the best swimming holes, golf, hiking and bike paths.

My home is currently for sale at Four Seasons and may have a showing. The rental income pays for itself!

This turn of the century masterpiece has it all! Enter off the driveway into a huge mudroom that accommodates all your equipment and gear. Round the corner and there's the bar and a cozy sitting room with a gas fireplace away from it all! Walk out to the back oasis patio and you feel as though your in Italy…beautiful perennials, back lit pavilion and green wall, piped music, a stone fountain and flowering vines create an atmosphere of pure tranquility. Alternatively, you can sit on the front or side porch and watch the action of Depot Street!

The main floor has a family room with a super comfy sectional couch, 40" HD TV and is open to the living room featuring a baby grand piano and overstuffed Ethan Allen classic sofa. Enjoy watching a fire in the foyer sitting in two swivel rocker chairs, perfect for an intimate conversation or just reading a book peacefully after taking a hot tub.

The gourmet kitchen is fitted with a 48' double Decor oven with six burners and sub-zero refrigerator/freezer and the 'real-deal' walk-in pantry. Enjoy your dinner in our dining room that seats 10 comfortably with a fully stocked built-in china cabinet, all surrounded by custom Birdseye maple wainscoting.

The second floor has a master suite, two bathrooms (washer/dryer) and three more beautifully appointed bedrooms. Access can be from both front stairs or butler stairs.

The third floor is where the action is; pool table, foosball and video game canter. Kids play and the parents chill. There is also a master bedroom with a King, a double bedroom and a twin bedroom. Plenty of floor space for overflow air mattresses as well. You can rent the house without these 2 bedrooms as well for a reduced fee.

This owner occupied home is lovingly maintained and filled with antiques and all the amenities and warm touches to make your vacation truly memorable!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: We are the Crowley family. Moved (escaped) to Vermont in 1999 from CT. We bought the house as a ski place and as soon as we closed on the property a conversation took place that went something like this: 'Honey, if we have this big beautiful home in Vermont that is twice the size and 1/4 the price of our place in CT. why can't we just move?' So after this not-so carefully well thought out plan was hatched, I of course said: 'You don't have to ask me twice'. We sold our properties in CT and re-invented ourselves (several times, it's a Vermont thing) We own an environmental remediation company that services most of Vermont and parts of New Hampshire. We have an 13 year old that skis most of the time, even when she is supposed to be at school. You would do it too. Our 25 year old is in Alaska and heading for Hawaii in a couple of months.

Why the Owner Chose Ludlow, VT, USA:
This home has a unique place in the history of Ludlow. It was built by Eli Ford in 1903. Old Eli was the owner of the general store here in town. As his fortunes grew Eli decided to build a showcase home. He pulled out all the stops and five years later this custom home was complete.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Shuttle to and from the mountain every 20 minutes. If you don't feel like getting the first chair, go back to sleep and you can catch up later! The best restaurant in Vermont is approx. 200 feet away (really). Walk through town, visit the shops and galleries. Send the kids to the pizza place around the corner. We can also offer personalized catering services. Lastly, we will offer a complimentary ride in the groomer with a seasonal rental!
