Every once and awhile a property will come on the market that embodies most all of the criteria that buyers of #Vermont real estate ask for. The list can be long and varied but inevitably it includes such criteria as acreage, views, privacy, convenient location, quiet setting, active local community, a quintessential general store, close by cultural activities, nearby hospital, multiple recreational activities within a short distance AND a newer vernacular residence that integrates into the landscape with a feel like its always been there. A tall order no doubt, but Summerfield in Benson, Vermont has all of these criteria and way more. The 100 acre parcel is mix of open pasture, hay fields, dells and woodland. There are two newer barns for hay and equipment storage. The land use lends itself to all manner of self sustainability in a community known for its participation in the #Vermont localvore movement. The residence has been ideally sited close to the center of the 100 acres which gives ideal exposure for alternative energy sources and affords great privacy while having expansive vistas in all directions. The three en suite bedrooms offer wonderful privacy with direct access to covered porches and the outside. The gourmet kitchen with it's granite counters, high end appliances and a great walkin pantry has direct access to the rear deck for informal dining. The three fireplaces offer great ambiance in two of the bedrooms and the expansive living room for entertaining. Summerfield offers all of the requested amenities but most importantly it reflects what we all come to #Vermont for, Quality of Life.
