Timber Frame Retreat & Ski House

Landgrove, Vermont

Vermont Retreat for sale with gathering room with wood posts and beams and stove and brick hearth

The construction of this property began in 1982 by one of Vermont Timber Works’ owners for his parents and continued over the years by Friant and Kelleher Builders (now Vermont Timber Works). 101 Cody Road is a recreational destination-home in the quiet, small-town of Landgrove, Vermont, which is centrally located near the quaint villages of Peru, Weston, and Londonderry…and only 20 minutes from Manchester, VT.  It features a 3,376 sq ft. timber frame home constructed from native maple and pine cut from the property, additional living spaces above a two car garage, a cozy cabin with beds for four people, a large pond, million-dollar views, hiking trails and a two story equipment barn. It is situated on 31 spectacular acres close to ski areas of Stratton, Bromley, and Magic Mountain.  At the ages of 87 and 89, the owners just passed this lovely property onto another caring family who will be stewards for the next generation. It was offered by Mary Mitchell Miller Real Estate in Weston Vermont.

The privacy is exceptional…as is the view.  Stratton Mountain is framed by lofty old maples, and both Bromley Mountain and Styles Peak complete the panorama.  Walking the mile and half of private trails on the property will wash cares away.  For the more ambitious, the Long Trail and Appalachian Trail are within easy reach.

The fifteen foot deep one acre pond attracts wildlife as well as swimmers and rafters bent on lazing away a summer afternoon, or ice skating in the winter. Next to the pond is a furnished cabin that can sleep four with its own wood-stove and a large screened porch for summer parties.

The Main Entry

Building started in 1982 by the owner and his son. Today, this property has evolved into a wonderful mountain retreat with lots of space and places to enjoy, warm wood stoves to gather around and walking trails to escape to.

Gathering Areas

As a mountain retreat, this home is designed to have multiple areas where people can meet and congregate as well as find privacy from others.

Upstairs

Friends and family can warm themselves upstairs by a pretty little antique pot bellied stove while taking the view and playing games.

The Kitchen

The kitchen is another great place to gather for cooking, eating and enjoying a refreshment while simply looking out the window.

Dining Area

Imagine your family and friends enjoying a meal looking at the view and being warmed by the stove.

Billiards Room

Called the "Shouting Room" by children, parents and grandparents alike, this space above the garage is where children and adults can game and play while their parents and quieter folk can relax far away in other parts of the house.

Hearths & Mantels

Antique brick and maple beams cut from the property are featured upstairs and down.

Custom Cabinets

Custom cabinets make a great space to display odds, ends and memories.

The Main House

A View from Behind

The Entry Hall

Screened Porch

Down by the pond, the cabin features there is a lovely screened porch which is a perfect place to relax, read a book, watch the kids swim and play or just gather for appetizers and cocktails in the afternoon.

The Fishing Pond

The tranquil pond below the cabin is stocked with bass - promising fish to any grand child who throws a hook in. There is also a sandy swimming area and a floating dock.

Walking Trails

Walking trails surround the 31 acre property. In the 1990's as the owners' sure-footedness became less sure, they called in David Chaves Excavating to bulldoze and add gravel to three loops of trails. Nature hikes in the woods include evidence of moose and bear, pileated wood peckers and barred owls. Notice the enormous white pine tree on the left.

Regulation Bocce Court

Covered by leaves, this regulation size bocce court is installed on a gravel foundation with a stone dust surface for competitive, and not so competitive play. A stunningly long natural rock bench is the perfect perch for viewers and players.

The Equipment Barn

A large two story equipment barn houses the owner's tools and other equipment with room for storage on the second floor. An antique Tucker Snow Cat stands at the ready to groom the trails for cross country skiing.

The trail network around the house is extensive and easily walk-able. The owners had the trails leveled with a bulldozer and brought gravel into the soft spots so their jeep and snowcat could drive around for fun and maintenance.
