About the Property

3 Building, 7 bedroom Family Farm Compound, Sleeps 20, 280 degree Mountain Views

Pristine Lilac Hill includes 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms in three separate dwellings set high up on an 11 acre hilltop, surrounded by an 800 acre working farm. The property is centrally positioned within 1 mile of downtown Stowe and about 7 minutes from Stowe Mountain Resort. Each of the 7 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 2 kitchens and both family rooms have recently been decorated and renovated. The living room is spacious with seating for 15 in front of a large central fireplace. The dining room features a wood cooking hearth/fireplace and corner cabinets. All first floor rooms are adorned with original hand hewed beams and the unique architecture of this 1827 farmhouse. Lilac Hill is perfect for family reunions or groups of 2-3 families to share. During the winter months there are hills for sledding, X-country and Snowmobiling trails, including the VAS (Vermont Association of Snowmobiles) trail system which passes about 100 yards from Lilac Hill and extends for hundreds of miles. The rolling terrain of our ridge top property features two ponds, tennis court and swimming pool spotted with apple trees and numerous gardens and 17 different species of Lilacs. 8 months of the year your mornings begin with cows grazing in the meadows, fish jumping and often large birds seen around the ponds. Many guests have suggested our house and property reminds them of an old Connecticut Country Estate. Stone wall lined gardens, terraced landscapes, cows and mountain landscapes make Lilac Hill the perfect family retreat in all four seasons. All aspects of Lilac Hill are fully restored and maintained. Lilac Hill was designed to provide the incredible outdoor life offered by the surrounding mountains of Stowe VT. No matter the season, we love our property and appreciate what it does to bring our large family closer together each time we make the journey. We hope it does the same for you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We raised 6 children to embrace the outdoor life we were exposed to growing up. Now, with the addition of 9 grandchildren our family often comes together at Lilac Hill to enjoy the beautiful surrounding mountains, waterfalls and ever changing weather found all around our property. Stowe provides our family with incredible 'Farm to Table' foods, competitive and challenging out door activities, many 'top rated' restaurants, diverse natural surroundings, and a world renowned Cultural Arts Center, In addition to the natural beauty of Stowe, we now believe Stowe has been completely restored to one of the most respected and complete resort offerings in the world. Stowe is back and we are thrilled to have chosen Stowe as our family retreat.

Why the Owner Chose Stowe, VT, USA:
We were exposed to this property by accident. We were on a one week vacation in Stowe and during a 'bad' snow day we decided to look at some houses for fun. When we came across Lilac Hill, we immediately knew the ice encased property was hiding something special from most 'viewers.' We picked up the resident family photo album and sat down to view the pictures for 1 hour. As designers we quickly realized that someone living at Lilac Hill had a master plan. One of them was a well know designer from Montreal, and we saw the results of her taste and care as she beautifully adorned interior rooms as well as how carefully landscaped and planted her numerous gardens had been.. Actually, I think once we saw the pictures of the cows grazing in all surrounding fields within view of most of the rooms in the main house we know that Lilac Hill was the farm we wanted to own without having to do all the heavy lifting of the actual farm work.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Unique views, incredible landscape, close proximity to the center of Stowe and Mountain Road. One of the older, very well maintained properties in Northern Vermont. It continues to be our family's personal, 4 season resort, while being located only minutes from the heart of Stowe. Restaurants, shops, special events, hiking, climbing, swimming, and of course some of the best skiing in the world. Lilac Hill and Stowe provides us with the best living, playing, and quality of life amenities most people only dream about. We are living our dreams and we feel blessed own it and to be able to share it with others.
