Luxury Home - Stowe, Vermont

            "Built by renowned Middlebury Builder, Connor Homes, this home harkens back to a former age when fine architecture was revered and quality building was the order of the day. The classic homes of yesteryear hold a charm and grace captured in their classical architectural roots that are easily distinguishable from their contemporary counterparts that lack the scale and proportion inherent to good design. This home is a modern day reproduction of the 1840 Josephine Baldwin House in Ferrisburg, Vermont. This home offers the best of all worlds. It captures the essence of historic architecture in a new home. You can have the charm and warmth embodied in that architecture, but take advantage of all the technologies and amenities of a new home.

         The views from this home are tremendous panoramic vistas of Mount Mansfield and Spruce Peak Golf Course. While the forward facing pediment gable, wide frieze and supporting pilasters make the front of this house easily recognizable as a classic Greek Revival, the rear of the house has been designed with ample glass doors and transoms to impart more openness and light to the house than might be found in original Greek Revival homes. The placement of all doors and windows are carefully designed so that the effect of the original architectural style is not diminished.Notch Brook Estates is one of the most desirable addresses in Stowe. Quiet and peaceful yet minutes to world class amenities. This home makes a wonderful year round residence or an ideal vacation retreat for the active lifestyle."


"Stone Patio: you'll enjoy entertaining or just relaxing with your favorite beverage watching the sunset over Mount Mansfield.

Wide Board Pine Floors: a new "old" home. Authentic Vermont pine, wide board floors give this newer home the look and feel of the 1840 original.
Two Fireplaces: there is nothing more romantic than curling up on the couch with a loved one in front of fire and looking out into the star filled Vermont sky.

Two Master Suites: you'll have a hard time deciding which one you want to use. Walk-in closets, breathtaking views, timeless details and appointments.
Panoramic Views: nothing in front of you but Nature. This home sports some of the best views in all of Stowe. This is the essence of Vermont living."
