Serene, secluded, private, yet proximate to Lake Shaftsbury State Park, Historic Route 7A, and shopping in Arlington, this 1790 cottage retreat boasts high speed Internet, built in wooden desks and bookcases, and easy maintenance. While retaining its 18c authenticity with wide board wooden floors and two working Rumford fireplaces, this home features 21st century upgrades of a cathedral ceiling, efficient eat-in-kitchen, skylights, mini-art gallery, transformed dormer, and multi-season covered terrace. Large picture windows look out at the Taconic or Green Mountain range and a peaceful pasture framed by forest. Easy access to snow shoeing and cross country skiing on one's own land with the benefit of town maintenance of dirt road access. Short drive to Bromley and Stratton mountains. Ideal for the at home working vacationer, transitioning retiree, or the experimenting down-sizer. Plenty of buildable land ready for expansion. A very special place.
