Find True Serenity on the Grounds of This Vermont Estate

Away from the noise of neighboring cities Hubbardton and Castleton, this retreat-style home is pure magic. Located on a sprawling estate, the grounds include acres of forest area, a private lake with a dock, babbling brooks with bridges, waterfalls, and nature galore.

When you first spy the home, you may marvel at the stark contrast between the serene natural backdrop and the shipping container-style architecture of the home. But before you make any snap judgments, you’ll have to step inside and discover all that this home has to offer.

Enjoy Solace in This Asian-Influenced Retreat Home

The architect behind this retreat-style home was inspired by Asian influences, which shows in this home’s design. As you leave the home’s unassuming exterior and venture inside, you’ll discover a light, airy, and thoughtfully designed interior. Immediately, any tension you’re carrying in your shoulders will start to give way as you begin your Zen-like experience, wandering through this home.

Each space in this 5-bedroom, 3-bath home exudes peacefulness and serenity. On the ground floor, you’ll find the master bedroom suite that features bamboo style-French doors and an Onsen tub — borrowed straight from Japanese design.

Other spaces on the main level are equally calming. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows grant visitors peaceful views of surrounding nature while they relax in front of one of three handcrafted fireplaces in the home. Likewise, the open kitchen space includes a vintage “cantina” that invites guests to gather and share reflections over shared eats.

Room for Guests?

Should you choose to invite others to join you in your Vermont paradise, the upper level of the home does offer two additional bedrooms with walls of glass that let the natural light and serenity pour in.

But the home’s real draw? A retreat wouldn’t be complete without a spa-like bath, and this home’s spa complex is certainly jealousy-inducing. The Japanese style spa complex includes an interior current pool, an exercise area, and a cafe ready to churn out the best elixirs and smoothies you could ever dream of.

Additional reasons to love this home include a separate guest wing with 2-3 additional bedrooms, a kitchen, a bathroom and a living area. And don’t forget about all the nooks and crannies for private journaling, a wood sauna, and studio spaces!
