Located at the end of a private road in Woodstock, Vermont on a hilltop with long range views of the Green Mountains, is a stunning six-bedroom eight-bathroom residence that is exceptional in every detail. First is the land itself, 30.39 +/- acres that fold over the ridge on either side with fields, woodlands and miles of John Morton trails for fitness and recreation. At the height of the land is the home. Private and secluded, all you hear are the sounds of nature, and as you look out over the landscaped yard and swimming pool to the cascading ridges and mountains beyond, Feng Shui is omnipresent. It was the land - its views, privacy and serenity - that drew the owners to the property eight years ago and for good reason. Parcels like this are exceptionally hard to find let alone buy.

Which explains why after using the property for several years the owners decided to completely remodel and expand the circa 2008 home. Finished in 2016, the transformation is extraordinary. Chimneys were taken down and built elsewhere, rooms were moved, like the kitchen and a new wing was added with a family room, three-season porch and upstairs master suite – all to improve the views, and the flow and enjoyment within. Everything is top of the line creating an elegant and sophisticated atmosphere that is comfortable and relaxing. The floors are fumed white oak and French limestone. The kitchen counters and bathroom vanities are Danby imperial marble. The Kitchen island is premium black walnut. Each staircase has custom wood railings with all-wool runners by Elizabeth Eakins. Most of the fixtures are from trade-only collections such as Holly Hunt, Rose Tarlow and Christian Liaigre. The hand-hewn beams in the living room and several walls are stenciled. Three of the wood-burning fireplaces are finished with field-stone granite and the fourth is faced with slate.

The entire house is fully automated. Using an iPad, you can control the temperature, lights, speakers, shades, alarms and security cameras, onsite or remotely over the Internet. The house also has Comcast high-speed Internet, and great cell phone reception with several different carriers.

Outside, the setting is equally beautiful. Everything has been re-landscaped and re-planted with irrigation, lighting, fieldstone walls, steps and walkways, perennial gardens, and dozens of white birch trees. There is even a granite firepit. The swimming pool was rebuilt and now has a full-length underwater bench to take in the view, and a textured pebble surface. Next to the pool, they added a slate patio with a post & beam Port Orford Cedar pergola, perennials, ferns and tall grasses.

Simply put, this is one of the nicest offerings in Northern New England; a perfect house on a perfect parcel in a perfect location.
