Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I'm a Consultant for Non Profits, who loves nature, am always ready for the adventure of travel, I deeply enjoy the peacefulness of Yoga and am always hungry for the great food my husband cooks. He is Spanish and boy can he cook!

Why the Owner Chose Shaftsbury, VT, USA:
The property was passed down to me from family and has been mutual project for my husband and I. We have worked on and cared for every detail of our house. It's a great place to disconnect and enjoy your surroundings. And though most people go for the peace and quiet, there is also so much to offer in the area and in Vermont in general. From the adrenaline seekers that want to ski, hike or paraglide, the layer back type that just want to read a Robert Frost's compilation in front of the huge fireplace at the house (and we are really near where he once lived, so we were technically neighbours.)

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have 40 Acres of land that give you endless possibilities to walk around a wonderful nature filled area. Every season is different, but all incredibly beautiful. We love to relax in the Hot Tub, get cozy in front of the fire pit with friends or go to many of the local restaurants that offer great quality food. Or maybe you want to stay in, everything in the house is designed for confort. We totally remodeled the house in 2013, so everything is new, clean and updated. Like I said my husband loves to cook, so the kitchen is fully stocked with anything you may need. For the Tv lovers we have a large 65'' TV, with cable and good internet thru out the house. All the linens are soft cotton and goose down so you get that well needed sleep to carry out your adventures the next day. We also have some of the loveliest farms around that offer great local season products from strawberries, amazing Vermont cheese, prime angus steaks or maybe some real free range chicken eggs bought from one of our nearby neighbours. We are here to help you have the experience you want, just let us know and we will make it happen.
