Enjoy this beautiful, split-level family home, perfect for multi-family enjoyment as it comfortably sleeps 12 and can sleep 14. Located directly on the water's edge of Lake Memphremagog, it provides the best of all worlds. It is a 25 -minute drive to the newly developed Jay Peak Ski Resort, which offers the best skiing in the Northeast Kingdom as well as a water park and great restaurants. It is also only 40 minutes drive to Owl's Head Ski Area in Canada, and 55 minutes to Burke Mountain Ski Area. Additionally, because it is on the lake, it has direct access to groomed snowmobile trails, ice skating, sledding and cross country skiing. Better yet, it offers privacy since it sits on 4 acres of property.
Besides the great location, the house itself is a gem. With 5 bedrooms it is perfect for multi-family use or big family get-togethers. Located on the top level of the house are the master bedroom suite and one guestroom. The master bedroom suite (includes a freshly painted full bath) contains a king size bed, has vaulted ceilings and a sliding glass door which leads to its own private balcony. The guest room also contains a king size bed and is en suite to a full newly renovated bathroom. This same bathroom has an additional door that provides access to it from the rest of the house.
Located on the next level down are the great room, kitchen, dining area and TV room. The great room has an open concept floor plan. It includes vaulted ceilings, a cozy fieldstone fireplace accented by a beautifully designed redwood wall, a bar with handmade stained glass panels, beautiful art work and walls of windows which offer exquisite views of the lake no matter where you turn. The great room blends into a gourmet kitchen that is fully fitted with every kitchen tool imaginable, including those pesky spices one doesn't want to bring with them on vacation. Center of the kitchen is an island that is perfect for workspace and visiting while preparing food as it seats 5. The dining area holds a kitchen table which seats 12. The table is surrounded on three sides by windows looking onto the lake. Finally on this level is a TV room, which sits just off the great rooms. The large TV can be easily viewed from any room on this level. Direct TV is available on all TVs in the house; however, if movies are your passion then while here there is no need for Redbox or Netflix as there is an extensive library of DVD's from which to choose. If reading is your desire, there is also a library of books available for your use.
The next level down houses two additional guest rooms, one with a king size bed and one with a queen size bed. There is an additional newly renovated full bath as well as a beautiful indoor hot tub to ease those muscles after skiing. The hot tub room again has beautiful stained glass as well has handmade walls of redwood. A full laundry room with a full size washer and dryer is also on this level.
The final level offers an additional family room (with a large flat screen TV) which allows for separation of generations if need be. Once again, beautiful views of the lake can be seen through the wall of windows. Additionally, there is a bedroom with two sets of bunk beds and a twin trundle bed. We use this whole level for the younger generation so they have their own space. The final space on this level is a room fitted to hold skis, ski bags, coats, boots, etc.
A detached 2 car garage is a few step away from the house -perfect for either parking your car or driving you snowmobile directly in after a day on the trails.
The city of Newport is nearby. It has several good restaurants, grocery stores, gas and pharmacies . Canada is down the street so bring your passport if you want some international flavor.
Enjoy all the comforts of home in this beautiful oasis. Not only is it economical, but you can easily make your own meals and packed lunches, enjoy a hot tub for 6-8 people, enjoy tons of recent movies and wifi internet access, cozy up next to an easy to turn on gas fireplace and indulge in space galore.
