    Dream Home

    This is a half hour from my job and looks so nice.

    But I think it is designed for people who can work from home. Not only is the driveway gravel but so is the road. I'm also leery of private water and sewer. If something goes wrong it can be a big expense.

    I love houses that look or feel like vacation digs--plus the wild landscaping makes me feel right at home. The inside is charming, as well. And the price makes me fairly dizzy.

    It does look cute but a heck of a lot of maintenance now and forever.

    Very cute house! I am somewhat familiar with that part of Southern VT, having vacationed in the area for 20 years. Wilmington seems to be close by and as you probably know, it's a very cute typical Vermont town. Bennington looks close by, as does 91--not sure if that's helpful for you getting to work. If you commute, it's true that it may be a challenge in the winter. But, it seems to be well-maintained.

    Both Wilmington and Bennington are such lovely towns. I have been terrified in winter going across 7 to get between them, but I am a chicken when it comes to winter driving. Is there a large well maintained road between this house and your work?

    I'd not be a fan of the three level living spaces, but the open maim floor is really nice. I'd predict high maintenance as well. In my brief travels through southern Vermont it seems like gravel roads and driveways are common outside of towns and main highways It doesn't appear to be a big issue.

    No. And I'm not real good at cleaning glass

    But it does go to show there are nice homes that are still affordable despite the current housing craze, which is encouraging to me. I just wish houses in the bigger towns and cities had more style.

    I recently sprained my ankle and realized that we need to find a single level house before we get any older. Hobbling up and down the stairs for daily life has been a real eye-opener. Nevertheless, I also appreciate looking at eclectic houses.

    That fourth photo---yikes what a lot of work! I'm wondering about mosquitoes and what it would be like under snow.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!
