Welcome to Sleepy Hollow: a custom crafted, energy efficient gem on 10+ private acres in Essex. Located close to amenities, this seemingly remote setting is a nature loverâs and outdoor enthusiastâs dream location. Tucked into the landscape up a shared driveway, enjoy the neighborhood trail network right out the front door where you can hike or ski among the wildlife, with spectacular views of Mt Mansfield in the distance. Built following airtight energy efficient standards, this home has a heat recovery ventilator for fresh air year round. Natural surfaces dominate, including native hardwood floors and custom hardwood trim. As you step in the front door, the eye is drawn to the Great Room, featuring large windows and a fireplace surrounded by fieldstone. In the family room, a wood stove provides winter warmth to cozy up while keeping the chef company in the kitchen, with its granite-topped custom red birch island. Upstairs, youâll find the sun-filled primary suite, along with three additional bedrooms. The best kept secret, though, may just be the third floor, with office space, a yoga area, and a bunk room that makes you feel like youâre in a tree house. Property includes a partially finished basement, a detached two car garage with custom woodwork, and a storage barn. The old sugar house will charm as-is, or would make a fabulous workshop or guesthouse. Groceries, restaurants, schools, and superior Mountain Bike Trails all within a 4 mile radius; 11 miles to BTV Airport.
