A wonderful large tiny house that we built new in 2011. It's Ideal for those interested in tiny (but not too-tiny) living. 16' by 22' and 19' high (abt. 450 sq ft of floor space) with full stairs to a loft that holds a queen bed with room for a dresser, shelves, and a full widow. Normal bathroom and shower with stacked washer/dryer. Fully-equipped kitchen with regular-sized gas cook stove/oven with hood and vent. Vaulted ceiling in main area creates a sense of spaciousness. House is super-insulated so it holds nighttime cool all day in the summer, and heats very easily with quiet Rinnai heater in winter. Shed outside with chest freezer and space for bikes and gear out of rain and snow. Small yard/garden space, crawl space storage available.
You have use of everything within the house's fence (house, yard, shed). There's even a canoe one could take to the rivers or Lake Spofford. You have one parking space in our driveway off the street (two spaces during some times of the year). You can also use our lawn if we talk about it.

We'll be there. Laura is home with the kids a lot of the day.
We are 200 miles north of NYC and 5 minutes from Exit 1 off I-91. 10 minutes from Exits 2 and 3 as well, if coming from the north on I-91.
Drive to hikes, lakes, skiing, and charming towns in Vermont and New Hampshire. There are kayaks to rent on the local rivers, and Spofford Lake is 20 minutes away with more water sports. There are covered bridges, cheese factories, cross country skiing, etc. in the area.
We're also very close to Western Mass, (even have its mild weather), with lots to do nearby in Greenfield and Northampton, MA.
Walk to town: Left out of driveway, left onto South Main St. Past lovely old cemetery. When you arrive at the much-improved five-way intersection nicknamed "Malfunction Junction," you're at the southern end of downtown.
Closest nature walk in woods is in another cemetery: Left out of driveway. Cross South Main St. Turn right for 500 ft. Left down paved driveway to cemetery. You can walk around the perimeter on a shady dirt road.
Walk 30 minutes (or drive one mile) to a 90-minute hike up Mount Wantastiquet for a great view of Brattleboro and landscape north, south, and west. From downtown Brattleboro (again, at Malfunction Junction), cross the Connecticut River via the green bridge to Chesterfield NH. Once you're all the way across (but before the traffic lights on the NH side) take your first left on a dirt road. Walk to trail head on right about 1/4 mile. Hike up!
The Food Coop is the new building at the southern end of downtown. It's like a small Whole Foods, with a cafe, buffet, deli, coffee, etc. A bit expensive, but good.
Quiet and clean pets OK if we talk about it first. No smoking indoors; in the yard is fine. Normally we're quiet after 9pm, as are the town and neighborhood. In any case, the amount of insulation makes the house quite soundproof. No big parties, please; there's not enough room in the house, or parking, and we sleep close by.
