Tucked back from the road, surrounded by woodland and bordering conserved land, is this Japan-influenced, passive-solar home, designed with clean, simple lines, a close connection to nature, and light-filled rooms from plentiful windows and carefully placed skylights. The main floor open-concept living/dining/kitchen area has large open spaces, lovely birch flooring warmed by radiant heat, walls of windows, and a three-sided central fireplace. There is a master bedroom, a bath with clawfoot tub and a 12x25 screened porch overlooking the woods--perfect for warm weather meals, yoga, and bird watching. The lower level has 2 bedrooms, bath, laundry and a huge family room or studio with a woodstove hookup and radiant heat. All the lower level rooms are walk-out and bright, with sliders overlooking the conserved woodlands with miles of hiking and groomed x-c ski trails. Excellent downhill skiing is only 30 minutes away. The house design provides passive solar and passive cooling which is supplemented by a new photovoltaic--solar panel--system. This is a remarkable, inviting home in a desirable location that is both private and convenient. The Hillwinds area, on the edge of Brattleboro, offers a strong community, and is a wonderful place to raise children, walk your dog, and get to know your friendly neighbors.
