Another section of the house has a lower roof, but is still two story.
This other section is 30'x20', with a laundry room, mudroom, bathroom
with shower, and a private
bedroom off the kitchen downstairs, and one bedroom upstairs attached
to the Master bedroom, separated by a curtain.

The house has maple floors and tile throughout. The traditional woodwork and windows, and the exposed timbers give the house an old-time feel.
The house is furnished with a mix of antiques, traditional and funky/cozy. Couches, comfy chairs, extra beds, etc., are in the living room, as well as an upright piano.
Outside, the house looks like a traditional Vermont barn farmhouse. Clapboard siding, divided light windows, tall pitched roof. The house is well off the road, nestled against Mt. Ascutney. When you are at the house, you can't see anyone else. The property is twenty four (24) acres, comprising woods, fields, creeks, walking trails, and a rushing, year-round brook. The immediate yard is two acres landscaped with a lawn, old apple trees -- a rolling, park-like feel. In Winter, there are two excellent sled runs -- one down the lower lawn, and one in one of the upper pastures.
The views from the house are short range, but beautiful. You can see out across the large yard into the woods, with a small view across the valley. Walking around the property affords better views across the valley, which has a few large farms and a few residences. From down the yard, you can see up Mount Ascutney.
The woods are mixed hardwood and softwood, so "leaf season" is beautiful, and Spring is thrilling and verdant. The Hemlock, Spruce, Fir, and Pine trees retain their greenery in Winter, so the woods are both open and green, and retain the privacy of the other seasons.
During some months, usually July, August, and October, your hosts are next door at the caretaker's cabin, should you need assistance. The caretaker's cabin is up the knoll out of sight of the main house.
