530 Chapin Road, East Wallingford, Vermont
This very special and unique property is located off Sugar Hill Road in East Wallingford, Vermont. It is surrounded by over 400,000 acres of Green Mountain National Forest (GMNF).
Consisting of 47.2 acres, the house is at an elevation of 1895 feet. Being the only house on this 0.9 mile town-maintained road, the property commands complete privacy with spectacular views of Okemo Mountain in Ludlow, Vermont and Ascutney Mountain on the Vermont/New Hampshire border over 45 miles away. Power, phone service, high-speed internet, and HD TV are supplied from the rear of the property so as not to obstruct any of the panoramic views.
Perennial gardens, open meadows, stone walls, and a swimming/fishing/ice-skating pond are just a few features of this property. In addition, a 100-vine vineyard with four different varieties of grapes has been producing fine wine for friends and family for the last several years.
The property has been in a land-use management program under the direction of a forester for the last 30 years, ensuring the most beneficial result for the forest and natural resources. This program offers a generous tax reduction to the enrolled property owner, and the town is repaid by the federal land-use program.
The original house is circa 1790 with documentation to the original owner and builder, Asa Anderson, a Revolutionary War soldier and provost marshal appointed by George Washington, whose final resting place is in the cemetery located on Sugar Hill Road. Additional historical artifacts and correspondences will be transferred with the sale of the property.
In the last few years the house and property have had the following upgrades and improvements: installation of a 90%+ high-efficient heating system; electrical, heating, and plumbing upgrades; a septic system (tanks/lines); an on-demand, high-efficiency propane hot water system; installation of a security, fire, and cold temperature alarm system; a drilled well; a standing-seam metal roof; a buried 500-gallon propane tank; new windows; a gourmet kitchen (appliances, cabinets, countertops); interior/exterior paint; a dock at the swimming pond; a farmer's porch; and an observation deck.
The Rutland Southern Regional Airport offers three daily flights to Boston's Logan Airport and is located 15 minutes from the property. In addition, Okemo Ski Resort is located 20 minutes from the property, and Pico/Killington, Bromley, and Stratton Ski Resorts are all located within a 30-mile radius.
