465 Pollard Hill Canaan, VT

Nestled in mature woods at the end of a long driveway, this gorgeous home with attached large workshop was lovingly built using logs from the 40-acre property. Sitting at the edge of a meadow of apple trees and perennials with ample garden space, this secluded home has many special features including a 12’ x 24’ guest cabin, fire pit, small pond, small barn for animals and tool storage, maple sugarhouse, and walking trails through the diverse woods that surround the meadow.

Enter the house from a covered porch into the entryway complete with slate floors, large closet, and stained-glass window. This entry includes a ¾ bathroom, laundry area and walk-in pantry with freezer. Turn left into the main house that features a free-standing stone chimney and 19’ cathedral ceiling gracing the open plan dining and living room. The soapstone stove adds to the cozy warmth of radiant heat fueled by either gas or pellet furnace. The convenient wood elevator (wood waiter) conveys firewood from the large walk-in basement.

Handcrafted cherry and curly maple cabinets complement the granite counter tops in the kitchen. The center island includes a stainless gas range with griddle. Decorative tin tiles cover the walls and island backsplash. The stainless-steel dishwasher and refrigerator complete the kitchen. Tile floors in the kitchen gracefully give way to maple flooring in the living and dining area. Sliding glass doors open to a spacious deck off the living room. The master suite includes a full bath and private deck on the main floor. The second bedroom is convenient to the main living space. A bright sunroom with a large arched window faces south. Circular stairs lead to a spacious loft with a library area above the kitchen, a private sleeping area for guests, and a roomy craft or study area. Reliable high-speed internet, solar panels and plentiful clean spring water are a tremendous plus!

To the right of the entryway is the spacious 24’x 40’ workshop on the first floor with convenient added living space on the second floor. The workshop has both 110 and 220 voltages, a large wood stove, and can be used as a garage. Upstairs has plenty of room for family and guests. Two more bedrooms, a full bath (including a claw foot tub), a common area, and two lofts make it perfect for family members to have private living space or for guests when hosting large family gatherings.

Just minutes from NH and Canada and up a well-maintained gravel road, this unique home is one that must be seen to truly appreciate its beauty. Potential buyers may visit in person or through virtual communication. This property is in the heart of the beautiful four-season recreational area in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom!
