With the high energy of a five-children household in mind, this home was robustly built on a plot greater than seven acres to capture all possible lost space with dormers over the garage. Built with hardwood floors of birch, and barrel rolled tongue and groove ceilings made of Douglas fir, this home will withstand elevated levels of activity from this energetic family. Hidden LED lighting above the crown molding in the barrel rolled ceiling entryway makes an elegant highlight to the decorative archway. Located alongside the kitchen’s built-in breakfast nook are eight-foot-tall sliding barn doors to complement the first floor nine-foot ceilings, offering warm and rustic charm in the entire home. All tile in the home is heated, making the long Vermont winters bearable. This home’s contemporary gas fireplace of stone adds to the comfortable feel of the home.
