Some of the reasons life is good in rural Underhill, Vermont, revolve around the beauty of nearby Mount Mansfield and the surrounding area and all it has to offer. The outdoor recreational opportunities are endless. Other reasons include Underhill’s tight-knit community and nurturing schools that have small classroom sizes and high parental involvement. Rural communities offer more privacy than city living, houses usually sit on an acre or more, and views of Vermont’s landscape are everywhere. Life is good in rural Underhill Vermont, and for some it can be even better if they reside closer to the village center, where conveniences are more accessible.
Living near a village center has many advantages. Everything is within walking distance — local stores, community churches, town recreation areas, the library, and school play grounds. If you run out of milk, it’s just a quick walk to the store for replenishments. On Halloween, parents can walk their kids door-to-door in town for trick-or-treating instead of driving them around in the car. When you live close to the village center you become a part of that center’s spirit.
Life is good in rural Underhill Vermont at 29 Pleasant Valley Road
A property I have listed for sale in Underhill is 29 Pleasant Valley Road, a beautifully remodeled colonial farmhouse located right in the heart of Underhill Center. It sits on five remarkably private acres on the edge of the village and is listed for $588,000.
As you turn into the driveway the house sits atop a small hill overlooking the property. A barn near the bottom of the driveway is a great building for all your yard equipment and other storage needs. The yard is predominately flat, allowing for a great field of play for kids, including a black-top basketball court. A converted horse barn can be used for horses, a handyman’s workspace, or an artist’s studio. It has power and its own well.
The five-acre lot borders the Brown’s River and there are trails running around the property. Schools and a playground are nearby. If you lived in this home you will never have to worry about your kids getting a ride home from activities or school.
Inside, the house has four bedrooms and two full baths, including a newly remodeled master bath, plus a half-bath on the main floor. The entire first floor was recently remodeled – the space was opened up, the kitchen was completely redesigned, and a new mud room was added, with radiant heat in the floors. Over the new two-car garage is a large family room and office space. In all, over 1,000-square-feet were added to this lovely colonial, for a total of 3,158 square feet of living area.
The master suite has stunning views of Mount Mansfield, and there are many other viewpoints of Mansfield from the property.
The property’s location and the beautifully landscaped grounds will steal your heart. This is a turnkey property, with no need for any improvements. The transformation this house has undergone and the rural location close to Underhill’s village center will please any potential buyer.
