Property Information

This magnificent and secluded post & beam home sits on 26.7 acres in Vermont’s  iconic Mad River Valley and offers privacy, meadows, and exquisite views. We are in an unparalleled central location in Waitsfield, Vermont — in close proximity to I-89 and the Burlington airport while only a short drive to three of Vermont’s best ski areas.  In the winter, enjoy skiing at Sugarbush and Mad River ski areas, 20 minutes away, or travel to Stowe just 30 minutes to the north — estate quality privacy with the amenities of resort life! We are 20 minutes to Montpelier, 40 minutes to Burlington, and 15 minutes to Norwich University.

It really is all about the views — breathtaking panoramas of Camels Hump and the Green Mountains from the Appalachian Gap to Mount Mansfield and beyond.  With over 15 acres of open horse pasture, and access to cross-country skiing, hiking and bicycling trails throughout the area, this custom home is a one-of-a-kind treasure for outdoor enthusiasts and a discerning buyer who appreciates a private sanctuary, exceptional construction, and incomparable artistic finishes.

Our estate quality home is over 3,950 sq. ft. (excluding the full, unfinished basement) with 4 bedrooms, breakfast room, dining room, living room, three (3) full bathrooms, mud room, and laundry area. With over 600 sq. ft. of wrap-around covered porches and a 5,360 sq. ft. barn that can be finished for a variety of uses – including guest or caretaker quarters, music studio, or home occupation – the property supports a family compound, retreat, or premier horse training facility.  ​We also have a run-in shed for horses and a riding area.  

The heart of this incredible home is its unique timber frame of over-sized beams and fully pocketed mortise and tenon joinery, incorporating techniques reserved for the most artfully crafted frames – timber framed dormers, dovetails, scarf joints, and a timber framed basement. 

We have stone fireplaces in both the living and dining rooms. Radiant heat throughout the entire house warms the cherry, wide board pine and slate floors.  The kitchen includes a commercial Wolf range and large 48” Dacor refrigerator. The bathrooms are custom marble/slate tiled with a handmade sandstone soaking tub in the master bathroom. The house features handmade solid cherry doors with forged iron, copper/brass lighting with mica shades, and wrap-around porches.  And, did we mention fiber optic wireless internet throughout the house?

Our Vermont home is fully furnished with antiques, custom furnishings, fine art from around the world and Turkish/Persian carpets. The unfinished basement has a radiant heat floor and timber frame that could be a large finished space with a walk-out on one end. 

There remains to complete the kitchen to new owner’s customization, outdoor landscaping, barn facade, and handmade banisters with third floor stairs (next on Seller’s list to finish). Seller is willing to discuss completion and/or plans to complete.
