Property Description

Discover a home with a captivating history that offers a distinctive lifestyle at the southern gateway of the nation's smallest capital city. Originally designed and built in the late 19th century by the renowned artist Thomas Waterman Wood as his studio, this rural gothic cottage is nestled in a picturesque, wooded hillside just on the outskirts of downtown. Take a break from the hustle and bustle of Montpelier while relishing the breathtaking view from above the city. The exterior staircase, draped in cover, provides a grand entrance and is a signature feature of this historic abode. As you step in, a charming deck and covered entry porch warmly welcome you. Inside, an expansive dining room seamlessly connects to an updated kitchen, leading to a spacious living room adorned with high ceilings, a hearth, woodstove, and windows on three sides. The living room opens to a delightful covered porch, offering a perfect spot to unwind. The primary bedroom, with its large windows overlooking Montpelier, showcases the decorative exterior motifs that define the unique construction of this home. A second bedroom and a full bath, along with a convenient stackable washer/dryer, complete this level. The landing also leads to a private balcony and ladder/stairs to a third-floor loft. Whether you're drawn to city living or seeking a tranquil sanctuary with ample space, the sloping wooded site features stepped terraces and intriguing ledge formations, providing the perfect retreat.
