A Mountain Home Where Nature Provides an Ever-Changing View
The Parrishes built their home near Stowe, Vermont, on a hill overlooking a meadow with Mt. Mansfield, the highest peak in Vermont, in the distance. All of the rooms are oriented to take full advantage of this magnificent view and the southwestern exposure. This custom home falls under the style of "Mountain Homes" having an Adirondack feel with craftsman influences. The main floor has everything Bob and Wendy need including the laundry, an office and the master suite. Upstairs are two bedrooms and a shared bath for the Parrish's grown daughters. The walk-out lower level contains a recreation room, fourth bedroom, Bob's office, a kitchenette, and a full bath.
The home is a perfect backdrop for the couple's extensive collection of vintage American pottery, artwork and hand-colored photos of scenes around Stowe where Wendy's family has lived for six generations.
