Vermont Escape

Wilmington, Vermont

2016

This contemporary cape style timber frame home in Wilmington, Vermont offers restrained and relaxed luxury. Dramatic arched douglas fir glulam timbers accent this home’s expansive picture window which offers views of the surrounding Green Mountains. Sliding glass doors on the walkout basement level connect the property with a transition room for outdoor activities and gear. An angled connector joins the living bays with the attached 2-car garage. The home’s exterior has both shingle and vertical board siding with a standing seam roof. Second floor bedrooms have custom Bensonwood millwork consisting of built-in shelving, desks and cubbies. A sled shed was built to protect the snow machines and keep them out of the way of the naturalized outdoor living spaces.v
