On the Market: The Ski Chalet of Your Wildest Dreams
This almost $11 million estate in Stowe is steeped in luxury.
506 N Hill Road, Stowe
Size: 9,866 square feet
If you’re the type to drop almost $11 million on a home in the country, this one in Stowe, Vt., is worth a look. Nestled among ski resorts and the Ben & Jerry’s factory, the extremely luxurious chalet blends rustic comfort with sleek, modern design.
It exudes a spa-like ambiance, thanks to finishes of cedar, fir, glass, stone, and steel. Inside, glimpse views of surrounding mountains from almost every light-filled room, including several of the home’s eight bedrooms. A red tower in the center of the mansion is home to its own suite with separate baths, a lounge, and an exercise area.
Outside, there’s a guest house, a barn with a car wash, staff quarters, a mini golf course, tennis courts, a series of connected ponds, a copper-clad studio with a waterfall in its basement gallery, and a sunken hot tub with a glass-enclosed “warming hut.” Plus, with a 12-car heated garage, the home’s new owners can host a wintertime soirée without guests having to wipe snow off their windshields afterward.
Even the chalet’s real estate listing is poetic.”Softness of bush-hammered stone, thud/click of massive metal door, solid ring of steel framed steps,” it reads, adding, “Friends & family euphoric; discovery & intrigue endless.” The kicker? “Live this fantasy. Captivate family & guests with this magical experience. A lifetime of memories awaits.”
