Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I've been a full time artist for twenty two years. I try to give guests their privacy but am available for a studio tour if you would like. Prior to becoming an artist I worked on Wall Street and ran a small investment firm that concentrated on the securities of bankrupt and distressed companies. Before that I did a lot of things, including fight forest fires in northern Canada near Great Slave Lake. I'm very much into nature and paddling. I enjoy both whitewater kayaking and wilderness canoe trips. I divide my time between a cabin deep in an Adirondack nature preserve (The Split Rock Wildway) and my home in Monkton Vermont, about an hour away.

Why the Owner Chose Monkton, VT, USA:
This apartment is one of four in this large -- 4500 square foot house. Two are rented on a yearly basis, I live in one, and the other two are available for short term rental. The house is secluded from both the road and neighbors. The property is heavily treed -- I plant more trees each year with the thought that before too many more years go by I will no longer have to cut the lawn.
