Little Dorset Vermont Gem! This landmark cottage aptly named and long known as "Small House" is conveniently located on Route 30 between Dorset and Manchester. It is nestled in the trees boasting back yard frontage on the famed Battenkill River. With historical roots, local lore has it that it was once a cider mill. The tri- level floor plan accommodates 1300+ sq. ft. of charming yet efficient living with unique details that include space saving built-in cubbies, hidden closets, round windows and interesting stained glass accents. A bright mudroom, laundry area and den/library will be found on the main floor. The lower level has a kitchen opening to a dining /living area complete with a cozy woodstove. Also on the lower level is an attractive bedroom with nicely done bath. The stunning primary bedroom with 1/2 bath on the top floor enchants with it's own private balcony overlooking the back yard. There is an additional bath midway for a total of 2 1/2 baths. In addition, a recently completed separate heated studio/office is a perfect workspace for artists, writers or telecommuters. 2 decks, fenced back yard and woodland paths over the lovely grounds including recently planted fruit trees and established perennial gardens to the river complete the setting. This special listing is being sold "as is" although there have been some recent improvements including a new oil tank and pumping of the cesspool which is in good working condition . Come see it to make it yours!
