On the Market: A Vermont Estate That’s Basically a Vacation Resort
How does 115 acres complete with a golf course and views of the Green Mountains sound?
1699-1743 Spring Hill Road, Londonderry, VT

When your home is a 115-acre compound on the edge of the Green Mountain National Forest, you likely won’t ever want to leave the property. But with everything this sprawling 19th-century dwelling and its surrounding landscape has to offer, there’s really no reason to.
While, yes, you could venture over to Bromley Mountain or Stratton Mountain (both located a short drive away) for some outdoor fun, you could also simply enjoy views of them in the distance while taking advantage of everything your own backyard bestows. For starters, there’s the outdoor swimming pool and heated patio appointed with a 12-person hot tub and cozy outdoor fireplace. The property also boasts a shooting range, motocross track, three-hole golf course, and a shooting barn with a clay pigeon thrower, as well as several hills and trails perfect for sledding, biking, hiking, or four-wheeling.
The inside of the home, meanwhile, offers everything you’d expect of a cozy Vermont manse—and more. Rich wood planks and beams adorn the floors and ceilings of most rooms throughout the home, including the kitchen, which features painted cabinets, abundant counter space, a massive refrigerator, and an equally enormous double-doored wine fridge. Nearby, the living room exudes warmth with a stone fireplace (one of several throughout the home) as well as gold-leaf-adorned ceilings that add an ultra-luxe touch.
With a home like this one, there’s no doubt guests will come knocking, but thanks to its nine bedrooms, there should be no problem finding adequate space for everyone who comes to stay. That includes the kids, who will delight in the joint game and bunk room, which comes outfitted with eight beds.
Should you feel the need for a little extra privacy, however, the property’s sleeping cabin provides solitude in spades. Nestled in the trees beside a tranquil brook, the wood bungalow is the ideal hideaway, complete with a charming front porch and a waterfront fire pit. All that’s left to do is find the perfect stick for s’more roasting.
