Property Description

At Valley Watch, it's all about the views. This custom-built contemporary home is situated on a ridgeline atop Fairfield hill allowing one of Northwest Vermont's most incredible views. To the west, you have unobstructed Lake Champlain & mountain views from the Canadian border thru the New York Adirondacks to south of Burlington; as well as the easterly ski mountains of Smugglers Notch all the way south of Sugarbush, including Mount Mansfield & Camels Hump. The twinkling evening lights are incredible & can be enjoyed from a 667 square foot deck with Vermont slate flooring- all overlooking both St. Albans and Plattsburgh, NY. 5.46 acres of tree-cutting easements protect your view. This home is an engineering marvel with over 300 cubic yards of concrete, steel re-bar, solid copper roof & local stone facade. The interior features locally harvested cherry flooring, doors & cabinetry, along with polished coral quartz & serpentine stone also harvested from the property. Great room with vaulted 15 foot ceilings & gas fireplace. Spectacular kitchen/dining room with wall of windows & access to a wraparound deck plus sunroom to take in the views. 1st floor master suite with walk-in closet. Lower level features additional en-suite bedrooms, family room & exercise rooms. You'll never run out of space for your toys with 9 garage bays, including one with a mechanics pit for the avid car collector! This is a truly a unique property with incomparable views!
