18 Maple Run Lane Stowe, VT

Location, location, location…really. RARE OPPORTUNITY to buy a Stowe family home or vacation getaway in this established, sought-after area (RR-5 zoning)—a classic Vermont hilltop country farmhouse with lovely views, in a picturesque park-like setting of ancient oaks and towering pines. Many updates over the years—READY FOR YOU TO MOVE RIGHT IN. Three bedrooms upstairs, full bath, plus office/library/nursery/playroom. The main level has an open living-dining-kitchen (brick fireplace w/wood stove) plus den or first floor bedroom, bath (w/shower), and a sizable entry area w/slate floor. ALSO: hardwood and ceramic floors throughout, covered porch for outdoor dining, full basement, and 10 closets! THREE ADDITIONAL BUILDINGS, ALL WITH NEW ROOFS: post&beam 3-stall horse barn w/tack area and hay loft, sugar house, garage. Two circular driveways for EASY ACCESS and lots of parking. PERENNIAL GARDENS and plantings surround the house, and don’t forget the apple trees and grape vines. The remainder of the 2.4 ACRE PROPERTY is a wildflower/bee & butterfly habitat. This unique property is located close to Stowe Village, Mt. Mansfield skiing, and Sterling Valley—and just down the road there’s easy access to the VAST & Catamount trail networks for some of Vermont’s best mountain biking, hiking, back-country and cross-country skiing. All that and Stowe’s EXCELLENT SCHOOLS, too. Move right in, then enjoy the fruits of my labor—blueberries and grapes! WHAT'S WONDERFUL ABOUT THIS PROPERTY AND NEIGHBORHOOD: I write poetry. Some of my favorite poems were written in fireside comfort, gazing out my picture window at a silent frozen landscape where icicles cling to flame-red rose hips, deer tracks navigate the hollows, and evergreens sprawl drenched in snow. But when most traces of winter have withdrawn and spring is palpable, perennial stalks reappear—old friends missed. In the gathering warmth and lengthening daylight, you, too, will love sitting on the porch, maybe a drink in hand, watching the evening sun lowering over the meadow as bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds swerve or hover. Or chat with a busy chipmunk nibbling a late-summer mushroom close-by on the freshly cut lawn. From the porch, marvel at the big dipper that hangs just over the tree line all summer amid trillions of stars. Drift off at the end of each day breathing perfume from perennial blooms, as the night silence envelops all in peace and tranquility. On more energetic days you can step out the door to explore foot paths and trails, walk to the barn to saddle-up your horse—or walk your dog, bike to Sterling Valley and Mud City Loop, or ski all the way to Edson Hill and back. Along the way you may meet neighbors, with kids or dogs, each immersed in total enjoyment of these exceptional surroundings. If you yearn to live in full harmony with nature, there may be no better place on earth.
