Stowe VT Real Estate Featured in Wall Street Journal

Stowe VT real estate has seen steady growth in homes sold over the past two years.  The Smith Macdonald Group was contacted by Nancy Keates of the Wall Street Journal for an article she wrote regarding a shared house in Stowe Vermont.  As a part of the article Nancy featured a home listed for sale by the Smith Macdonald Group.

The home, 496 Manelick Drive is an 82 acre estate property located in Stowe Hollow, one of the premier Stowe VT real estate locations.  Top of the world location with panoramic views from Camel's Hump to Mt. Mansfield, including Trapp Family Lodge, sits this luxury six bedroom home tucked into a backdrop of exposed rock. This high-end home opens to the living room with cathedral ceilings, over sized hearth and wall of western facing windows. There is excellent flow through to the dining room and into the kitchen, with reclaimed posts and beams throughout. The chef's kitchen has hand crafted cabinets and a custom antique island. Main floor master suite with hearth, home office with hearth all afford unobstructed western views. Three spacious bedrooms upstairs. The lower level has a hand crafted wine cellar, two bedrooms, state of the art theater room and game room. The spectacular views from home, pool and hot tub will inspire you every minute of the day. Enjoy sunsets on the wrap around deck. Two car garage, extensive gardens, stone work and Jai Lai court complete this 82 acre private estate.

The property can also be sold as land and the house separately.  Here are some photos of this stunning home.

      My favorite picture is by far the Crafted Wine Cellar. The wooden wine box shelving in the center island is remarkable! It gives the space an old world style accent. If your looking for original wine boxes or crates for your own wine cellar shelving visit Winepine -

          Skiing at Stowe Mt. Resort

          Stowe Mt. Resort Skiing is Just Around the Corner

          Update to our Blog: Stowe Mt. Resort will open to all seasons pass holders for one day only on November 10th.

          Skiing at Stowe Mt. Resort is coming in less than two weeks, Nov 17th is opening day.  We've had several days this past weekend with snow in the higher elevations, especially at Stowe!  This morning while I was feeding my twins breakfast there were large snow flakes coming down.  It was just a reminder that it's time to get my gear out of the shed, start to tune up the boards and prepare for the season.  Although my girls are only 14 months old, I'm getting excited to get them out in the snow and to start to teach them to ski in the coming years.

          But I wasn't the only one thinking of skiing this morning, the fine snow makers at Stowe Mt. Resort where already hard a work laying the base for the 2012-2013 season.  Here's some footage of the new snow making equipment in effect this morning.  They are blowing snow at the base of the 4-runner quad, but have been bringing in new equipment since last season, so the coverage this year should be very good.

          There's still time to get some dry land training in, get those legs ready, get the skis tuned up and to add duct tape to last year's gear.  I hope to see you on the mountain this year!

          If you are looking for a rental for the winter season we have several options left and if you are in need of a vacation rental, we have plenty of options, but they are getting booked as many people are planning to visit Stowe this year.  Email me today or visit Stowe VT Rentals to see what options we have available.

          Stowe is scheduled to open on Nov 17th, click here for more info.
