This cozy off-grid mountainside deck house, built in 2004 on serene 8.3 acres of woodlands with a beautiful spring-fed pond is waiting for you! It has attractive post and beam construction, a large second floor deck with mountain views, an insulated full-sized basement, and an attached over-sized one car garage, which has perfect bonus space for a small workshop area. The main level is an open floor plan with a recently added bathroom waiting for your final touches, a simple kitchen offering great space for your vision, and lots of natural light. Up the stairs on the second floor are two bedrooms, a comfy open den with an oversized window looking out to the large deck and an expansive view. Up above this, is a 3rd floor loft space which could easily become a 3rd bedroom, home office or rec room. This home has a conventional septic designed to suit a 3 bedroom home, so adding a 3rd bedroom would be simple. This off-grid home is well-insulated, has a solar rack with lithium-ion battery storage, a large Elm Woodstove in the basement, and propane hook-ups throughout the home for additional gas stoves or Rinnai if needed. This hillside retreat is off a well-maintained public road in a beautiful area of Central Vermont, just 4 minutes outside of Cabot village, 20 minutes from Danville and Plainfield, and about 35 minutes from Montpelier and Morrisville.
