Property Description for 257 Lake, Benson, VT 05731

Come enjoy the serenity of Shale Hill Farm. Passing through the private gate and up the winding landscaped driveway you will discover what the eye cannot see from the road. This luxurious white oak timber framed home stands prominently above the other structures giving you the unobstructed Vermont mountain and valley views visitors come to see. It offers an oversized timber framed formal entrance that opens directly into the main living space. Your eyes will be immediately drawn to the stone foyer and 13.5" wide plank pine floors that cover the remainder of the flooring. On the main level you will find a formal dining space with exposed timbers that could easily seat 20, an oversized living room with cathedral ceilings and a chef's kitchen. This dream kitchen has a center island with casual seating, a 6 burner gas stove, a serving buffet and custom copper farm sink. Also on this level, though slightly hidden behind a pocket door, you will find the home office that is equipped with a private entry. The second floor houses the master suite, which includes a walk in closet and custom bathroom with multi-person walk in shower, two additional bedrooms, all of which have vaulted ceilings, a guest bathroom and laundry room. The finished lower level has a 30' x 30' family room and an in-law suite (or 2nd master). This home and foundation were also designed and constructed to accommodate multiple fireplaces so the hard work is done. Time to make those Vermont memories. Welcome home!
