The construction of this property began in 1981 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 3,210 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 camper 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. Soon it will be offered on the market firmly at $875,000.00. At the ages of 87 and 89, the owners are ready to to pass this lovely property onto another caring family who will be stewards for the next generation.
Located at the end of a 750 foot driveway, high above Cody Road, the privacy is exceptional…as is the view. Stratton mountain is framed by lofty old maples, and both Bromley Mountain and Stiles 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 15 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. If you are interested in purchasing this property, e-mail Doug Friant.

Welcome to 101 Cody Road
Please take some time to browse, click on the images and explore the home and property. Building started in 1981 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.The front door is surrounded by perenn
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.
Friends and family can warm themselves upstairs by a pretty little antique pot bellied stove while taking the view and playing games.
The kitchen is another great place to gather for cooking, eating and enjoying a refreshment while simply looking out the the window.
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.
Down Stairs Bath
The down stairs bathroom has maple countertops and a shower. There are four bathrooms in all - a half bath upstairs, the downstairs bath, master bath and the bathroom above the garage.
Places to Sleep
Plenty of Room for Guests
Permitted for five bedrooms, there are plenty of choices for guests. The main house can accommodate eight people comfortably (three couples and two singles). There is room for two singles and a couple in the rooms above the garage and four singles down at the camper cabin. The first upstairs bedroom has a twin and a queen bed.
The master bedroom is on the first floor with a private bath and a window overlooking a wild flower garden.
Bunks in the Shouting Room
The shouting room has two head to toe bunk beds, and a bathroom with a shower off to the side.
Above the garage, there are three rooms; the shouting room, a cozy den with room for a queen sized bed or a pull-out couch, and a bathroom with a shower.
The cabin, located down by the pond, has room for four hearty adults or adventurous children.
The Main House
Designed to blend into its mountain environment, the home is surrounded by lawn and rock gardens.
Garage and Driveway

Explore the Property
Down by the pond there is a lovely screen 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 children who throws a hook in. There is also a sandy swimming area and a floating dock.
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. Notice the natural rock bench for viewers and players.
The Equipment Barn
A large two story equipment barn houses the owner's tractor, 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.
