A beautiful, large colonial style home with
5 beds, 4 baths*, dining room, kitchen with walk-in beadboard pantry, entry mudroom, living room, office, extra room we used as a"library"with atrium doors out to a screened-in porch. A spacious back deck (composite decking) facing south and overlooking the back yard and field.
The floors are hardwood throughout, 6 panel wood doors, custom made wall panels line the wide stairway. The dining room, upstairs hall and stairway & part of the kitchen have new plaster walls and beadboard is used in the mudroom and kitchen. Benjamin Moore Historical colors used throughout the house. Double oven in the kitchen, gas 5 burner stove top (new, still to put in). Full, dry basement with laundry hook up, a central vac with access on all floors, even into the garage. And a large, house-length attic with a pull-down attic door. The septic is a brand new Presby system that was put in late summer 2016.
2,775 square feet of living area.
The house has a two-car garage and a circular driveway.
Outside there is a 3-stall horse barn, riding ring, and large shed/chicken coop.
The 7 acre property has old-time heirloom apple trees (they do need reclaiming/pruning) a small but prolific blueberry patch in a stone walled spot, raspberry patch, sunny vegetable garden site, established rhubarb, a wild flower garden, lovely old lilacs by the house besides other beautiful established shrubs,
a large sweeping yard and a great children's swing area with fort/slide/swings
all on safety rubber mulch and highlighted with lovely landscaping!
Located just north of Montpelier (15 minutes of mostly paved driving), in the quaint hamlet of Maple Corner, barely 3/10ths of a mile on dirt road
—surrounded by rolling hills, a vibrant community, a walk-to local swimming pond, small country store, and historical community center! Our little hamlet boasts of quite a social community and there are countless opportunities to participate if desired—classes in yoga, a new pub off the country store hosts local musicians, a large barn that generously hosts multiple community gatherings during the summer (https://www.facebook.com/bigbluebarn/), and fun community events for various holidays. The swimming pond becomes a local hockey rink in the winter for whoever is up for it.
Truly community and life the way Vermonters have always desired it to be.
Local, friendly, fun...and this beautiful home is right in the midst of it!
Maple Corner is in the U-32 school district and the house is on the bus route!
The original house was built about 1970 and the second floor was added in 2000 with new siding and roof. The various improvements have been made since 2000, and happily only a few are not quite finished—the price reflects this.
Inside is like-new and beautiful!
(* there are two 3/4 baths, one half bath and one partially done full bath.)
