PROPERTY ADDRESS

6 Fox Lane Underhill, VT

Post and Beam, vintage New England elegance, stunning postcard views of Mt Mansfield and the western foothills from every room, spectacular timber-frame sleeping and dining porch, end-of-the-road privacy.

Facing the sunrise summit of Mt Mansfield, Vermont’s highest peak, this architecturally unique home floods with light offering a stunning window on Vermont.

Perfectly situated on 10.1 acres at the end of a country road, surrounded by the privacy of woods, owners enjoy the rare ability to control the view into perpetuity. Perennial gardens, remnants of a century-old apple orchard, stone walls, hiking and snowshoeing trails, landscaping boulders. Don’t just live in Vermont, move to 6 Fox Lane and experience it’s breath-taking beauty and serenity every single day!

This amazing Vermont home is adorned with cozy vintage details, including cedar paneled bathroom with an antique iron soaking tub and sink. Master carpentry including cherry, pine, and birch built-ins. Architecturally salvaged doors from the Winooski woolen mill.

Efficient chef’s kitchen with green granite counters, custom arts and crafts cherry and birch butcher block counters and cabinetry, brass pump faucet. Open floor plan on the first floor with oak floors in the kitchen, vaulted ceiling den, library and cedar bath. Variegated Vermont slate entry, mudroom.

Huge master bedroom with home office en suite, or use as a nursery or 4th bedroom. Master features a large walk-in closet, master bath with dual showers, sinks, and toilets connected by pocket doors. The upstairs features two additional bedrooms, one with a whimsical half-bath, and one with access to a full bath. Skylight in the guest bath allows for all seasons star-gazing.

Walk-out your finished basement office (or billiards or rec room) to enjoy lunch with family and friends on your bespoke, two-tier blue stone patio. A grilling deck off the sleeping porch and expansive professionally landscaped yard support outdoor BBQs and family events of up to 50 people.

Propane stoves on sleeping porch, billiards room, and the den warm your guests while they shed their snowshoes. (Main heat is forced air, but 3 efficiency Jotul gas stoves provide practical back-up heat as well as romantic winter ambiance.)

Adjoining the dining room is a classic 3-season timber frame mountain sleeping porch graced by a 12-foot bespoke pine and cherry window bed, and a vaulted outdoor dining room where your guests can dine, entertain, create, or just nap while surrounded by songbirds, mountain views, and the wonders of nature.

The home is encircled in outdoor viewing lights for security as well as night time wildlife viewing. Sit and sip coffee by the fire as you watch fawns play in the apple orchard, hummingbirds flit by, and grouse perform their spring mating dances under the larch trees.

For the health conscious, the home enjoys a high flow, mountain spring well, with a UV bacteria zapping system—new in 2020--and a perfectly balanced PHP osmosis tank. This 10.1 acre estate could easily accommodate more gardens or a backyard guest cottage or rental cabin (allowed under the Town of Westford’s accessory dwelling regulations). Taxes are paid to the town of Westford. (The property has an Underhill mailing address for postal convenience.)

This 3-4 bedroom, tri-level , 3 ½ bath home is a one-of-a-kind, must-see property in a convenient commuter location off Route 15, Vermont’s main road on the western side of the state. 20 minutes to skiing, year-round fun at Smugg’s. Equally fast commute into the Burlington area via Route 15. Perfect nest for artists, writers, entrepreneurs, nature lovers or weary urban telecommuters. Equally suited as a primary home or as a country retreat for those seeking a stunningly unique, yet modestly priced, nature oasis tucked into the foothills. Attached 2-car garage means you never have to rake snow off your cars. Outdoor storage shed for lawn tractor and garden equipment or use as a playhouse, she-shed, tiny house.
