Vermont's Most Expensive Home Listed for $17.5M Resembles A Covered Bridge

A fascinating two-bedroom home resembling a covered bridge in Stowe is the most expensive home for sale in Vermont, priced at $17.5 million.

Sitting on nearly 240 acres of land, the 4,791-square-foot residence known as Deerwood was designed and constructed to resemble the vintage covered bridges found throughout New England. The striking design features a contemporary layout.

“The property is owned by a family from Toronto who compiled the property over the years during the ’70s and ’80s,” says listing agent Wade Weathers, of Landvest.

“They built a small home in the mid-’80s, and as the family grew, they wanted to take advantage of that land parcel. They always loved covered bridges and found them fascinating, so they hired an architect from Toronto who saw the stream and said, ‘The house needs to go here.'”

Following the architect’s sage advice, a 140-foot-long home was built over the stream in 1994.









On the main level, the open floor plan features an 18.5-foot cathedral ceiling with exposed trusses. Walls of glass frame the natural beauty.

An open kitchen flows into a spacious dining room and living area where the focal point is a commanding floor-to-ceiling slate fireplace.

A spectacular spiral staircase constructed of oak and maple reveals a glimpse of the creek, which runs directly under the house and comes with a waterfall.

“The staircase was built by local Vermont artisans who designed it as a work of art, along with other pieces of handcrafted furniture in the house,” Weathers says. “What’s amazing is you can hear the water running right under the house. It’s very relaxing to listen to.”

There are decks on each side of the house and an enclosed porch is located at the west end. The primary suite can be found on the ground level, along with a guest bedroom, an office/library, and the attached garage.

In addition to the main residence, there’s a four-bedroom guesthouse.

“The guesthouse also overlooks its own pond and the tennis court. There is also a workshop/two-car garage where you can store everything that goes along with owning a 240-acre property, and above that, there’s a one-bedroom apartment,” Weathers adds

“You can hike or go cross-country skiing or mountain biking here as well,” Weathers says of the property’s numerous trails. “There are also five ponds on property, including an old beaver pond that is still active.”
