Just under 25 minutes from Montpelier and exit 8, this custom-built off-grid home on 21 wooded acres welcomes those looking for a retreat from city life. Nestled on two separate lots and surrounded by beautifully curated and professionally designed landscaping one can enjoy the wrap around porch with stone floor. The house and porch were constructed from trees milled on site. Come on in to this eco-friendly solar-powered home where you can see that no detail was overlooked or expense spared. You’ll be impressed by how this home was designed to optimize all of its space with its curved plaster walls, fluid floor plan and light-filled rooms. You’ll be sure to stay warm in winter as the house is foam insulated and heats with two woodstoves which use only two cords of wood a year or heat with Rinnai, direct vent heaters if you choose. Outside, there’s plenty of room to work your craft with a 14X24 shed/workshop, a 18X24 barn, and a 10X18 woodshed. A 2-acre clearing on the south lot facing Hunger Mountain could be the site of a second home. Shepard Hill Trail is a usable hiking, cross-country skiing and VAST trail that opens up into miles of trail systems. The serenity of living surrounded by pristine woods and mountain views offers a life of peace and simple pleasures. The trail is maintained by a neighborhood agreement for winter access. So whether you are coming from a distant city or from the next town over, this slice of Vermont is ready and waiting for its new owner.
