About Joseph Duddy

Owners grew up and presently reside in New Jersey. Spent 12 years in New England going to high school, college and Grad school, and consider Vermont our second home. My parents purchased the house in 1979 when I was a student at Middlebury College, and we have spent almost every winter coming up to go skiing and just get away.

Joseph Duddy purchased this house in 1979

Why Joseph Duddy chose Vermont

Property was originally purchased by my parents who restored it back in the early 80's. We then purchased the home in the late 90's and have completed extensive cosmetic upgrades to the property. We love the area and spend as much time as possible there, but with very active high schoolers, just don't get up as much as possible.

What makes this house unique

From the moment we saw the house, we fell in love the vast expanse of woodwork through out the house and its great location with surrounding views of the mountains.

Beautiful house. Ample room.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house in a quaint little town. We enjoy our stay. The kids love the third floor bunk. Could use a third full bath though.

Great Family Ski Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for the perfect get-away, to spend a ski weekend weekend in the mountains with our family. This wonderful house worked out perfectly for our adult children and grandchildren. There is plenty of room to spread out and enjoy together time and the five bedrooms were fantastic. The sauna was a real treat after a long day on the slopes. We will be BACK!!
