Tucked away on 54 acres, this 4,500-square-foot post-and-beam home is the essence of a majestic mountain paradise, new to the market and priced to sell at $1,080,000. This jewel-in-the-mountains has a 5-star energy rating, with geothermal radiant heat and a solar array to power it through.
The impressively stunning great room has cathedral ceilings. The focal point is a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and chimney, hand built by a local Vermont mason. It is just one of the many outstanding features of this majestic mountain paradise.
The great room floor plan is designed for entertaining, and cooking can take place in the kitchen, while interacting with guests and family. The kitchen has granite counter tops and high-end appliances, including a Sub Zero Wolf refrigerator, DCS Fischer Paykel gas range top, and Miele wall oven. The cabinets are gorgeous tiger maple. The floor plan is situated so that the kitchen faces across a work station to the south-facing windows, with view fall foliage, snowy winter wonderland, or sultry summer evenings.
The floors are throughout the house are predominately hardwood. The wood floors were carefully researched and selected for their ability to transfer the radiant heat. The entry and mudroom have slate tile, with radiant heat below.
Just off of the kitchen is solarium. This owner was very fond of orchids, and they bloomed year-round in this special room. It has tile floors, a center floor drain, and a water source.
Two bedrooms are also located on the first floor, at each end of the house.
The second floor includes a library and master bedroom. The library is adorned with red maple cabinets, multiple built-in book cases, and two magnificent stained-glass front panels. Adjacent to the library is a room that was used as an office.
The master bedroom has a large en suite bath, with glass block shower walls, a soaking tub, tiled floors, and double sinks with granite countertops. The master bedroom opens up to a private deck, where you can enjoy morning coffee and evening sunsets. A large walk-in closet completes the ensemble.
The pièce de résistance, however, is the hidden wine cellar. Off of the kitchen and opposite the solarium is a pantry with a hidden door, which is opened with a remote control. Once opened a spiral staircase takes you down to the most amazing wine cellar you will ever see outside of France. It is temperature controlled and a dehumidifier runs to maintain the appropriate atmosphere for keeping wine safe and comfortable until ready for consumption.
Also included in this amazing majestic mountain paradise is a post-and-beam two-bedroom guest house at the lower part of the property. The 1,400-square-foot cottage is for use as a guest house or caretaker’ house, whatever suits your needs.
