Set along a meandering country road with a scenic Vermont backdrop of Mt. Mansfield and the Lamoille River, this spacious ranch style home is in impeccable condition. Country setting yet just a short .4 mile walk to downtown Fairfax and 15 minutes to I-89.

This well maintained 3 bedroom 2 bath home built in 2004 sits on a peaceful one acre lot with no neighbors on three sides. In addition to the 1,904 square foot home – there is a massive 1,296 square foot heated garage with metal roof and 200 amp electrical service. Plenty of room for expansion with a loft that could easily be converted to an apartment, Air Bnb, office space, or simply used as storage. The garage is perfect for a workshop, small business owner, or a car enthusiast. There is also a 20 x 12 shed that is ideal for a garden shed or for outdoor toys.

The open concept 21 x 13 kitchen includes a very spacious dining area providing ample space for the whole family. Highlighted by a vaulted beamed ceiling and a custom handmade island with lighted rock inlay, this room is a true showpiece. There is copious cabinet and counter space plus a 7’ pantry in the adjoining mudroom. Appliances include a flat top electric range, dishwasher, and fridge. A window over the sink provides a pretty view of the side yard. The 9 x 8 mudroom serves as the back entry into the house which is serviced by a handicap accessible ramp.

The 21 x 13 family room is open to the kitchen and also has a vaulted beamed ceiling. This brightly lit room has large windows and is drenched with natural lighting. It has beautiful built-ins for media. The front entranceway (11 x 6) separates the family and living rooms and has a large double closet. The formal living room is 18 x 13 and connects to the bedroom area and main bath. This cheerful room also has large windows and is flooded with natural light.

The 15 x 13 master bedroom has a large 13 x 9 en suite bath with double vanity, extensive cabinetry and spacious shower. A 6 x 5 laundry area with full size washer and dryer along with two shelves is located in a nook off the bath. A 60 square foot walk in closet rounds out the master suite. Two additional bedrooms are very amply sized at 13 x 12 with a 6’ closet and 13 x 10 with a 5 x 4 walk in closet. Both have pleasant country views. The main bathroom is 10 x 5.

Outside you will find a 12 x 8 deck overlooking beautiful scenery. The deck has a bump out that is perfect for storing the trash cans and easily bringing them down to the driveway via the ramp. There is also a 16 x 8 patio which is partial slate and partial red cinder block.

Other attributes include nice six panel doors and custom window trimmings in all of the rooms. The kitchen, living room, mudroom, and entryway all have new laminate flooring. The house and garage are heated by oil forced hot air and the house has central air conditioning and ceiling fans. Low maintenance vinyl siding is a nice plus.

Enjoy fishing or canoeing from the Lamoille River which is located just across the street from this home. There is even a babbling brook bordering the property. Excellent lighting for a garden and plenty of room for picnics and all kinds of sports, or just relax while taking in the bucolic setting.

Desirable location close to village amenities including local dining, grocery store, bakery, banking, post office, hardware store, and town rec path. The highly sought after Bellows Free Academy Schools (BFA) are less than a mile away. A quick jaunt to major work centers such as Burlington, St. Albans, and Essex make this an affordable alternative. Just 20 minutes to Smuggler’s Notch Ski Area and summer water park. An abundance of hiking trails are located nearby. Affordable living with an excellent quality of life!
