Rest, relax, and get away from it all at this three-bedroom South Hero home, a beautifully maintained Vermont farmhouse with a large grassy lawn, a classic front porch and covered back deck, and a lovely location in the Lake Champlain Islands.
This three-level home sits within steps of central South Hero, just a short stroll north of the restaurants and shops on Highway 2. It's also only three miles from White's Beach and the Snow Farm Vineyard & Winery, four miles west of Sand Bar State Park, and five miles south of Grand Isle State Park.
The interior living space retains much of the home's original character, from the rich wood trim to the intricately patterned hardwood floors. On crisp autumn evenings, you can grab a log from the porch for the antique wood stove, or simply curl up in an armchair with the WiFi and your Kindle.
Move into the great room to find a plush sectional sofa and sunlight streaming in through the large picture windows. Bring along a board game to play at the coffee table or settle in for a night in front of the wall-mounted flatscreen cable TV and DVD player.
The full kitchen has been artfully refinished with granite countertops, subway tiles, and plentiful cabinet space, but it still radiates pastoral charm. Use the blender to whip up fresh fruit smoothies each morning, sit down for breakfast in the spacious dining room, and simply load the dishwasher to take care of the cleanup.
When the summer sun is shining over the Lake Champlain Islands, you'll have a covered back deck with a ceiling fan, a gas grill for afternoon barbecues, and a grassy lawn for spirited games of frisbee and tag.
With three bedrooms, one full bathroom, and one half-bath, Farmhouse Haven can accommodate as many as four guests. Head upstairs to find two bedrooms with a queen-size bed apiece, as well as a charming third bedroom with a crib and a rocking chair. The full bathroom offers a clawfoot tub and a glass stall shower.
And whether you choose to spend your days at the beach or on the lake, you'll always come home to a private washer/dryer for your clothes.
Thanks to its tranquil and secluded position in the Lake Champlain Islands, South Hero is an ideal place to escape the pressures of the outside world. This all-American town is surrounded by apple orchards, quiet country roads, and scenic beaches, including White's Beach with its lovely view of the Adirondacks.
Head north for the day to the 226-acre Grand Isle State Park, where you'll find 4,150 feet of Lake Champlain shoreline, a small boat launch, a sand volleyball court, horseshoe pits, and a family-friendly nature trail.
