In the heart of Quechee - in the heart of Vermont - this incredibly stylish and elegantly presented woodland cottage home delivers on the often sought but rarely achieved architectural harmony between cozy and spacious at the same time. Using the time-honored technique of a south-facing main façade, adding volume to an efficient footprint and taking a particular focus on oversize window throughout results in an interior that glows with natural light throughout the day. Once inside, the space unfolds with an open design and complimentary architectural choices like a step-down living area with a dramatic stone chimney and hearth as the great room’s main visual anchor, vaulted ceilings in the master suite and dining room area, and an ingenious second-floor bridge to the third bedroom that provides for a distinct sense of privacy between all of the bedrooms. You'll quickly realize that this design is an exceptional use of the available space and one of our favorite designs. The tucked-away covered entry creates the feeling of a quiet retreat in the woods, hides a convenient ski locker in and presents a design with a single main door people actually use. The one acre lot, with expanded clearing, is level and private and set back from the already quiet country road. Other highlights include a second-floor loft space that makes for a great home office or sitting area and room for all seasons both inside and out with a screened porch and a patio.
