When I first met Brian and Freddie – homeowners in Jericho – several years ago, we talked about various options to sell their home and undeveloped 10 acres on Steeplebush Road in Jericho. Their home sat on top of the hill, and commanded a 270 degree plus view from Lake Champlain’s Islands around to the south and over to Mount Mansfield to the east. Spectacular doesn’t convey the setting completely – add serene, sublime, awe inspiring, and more.
Well, the home sold of course, along with about 7 of those hilltop acres, leaving us with a 3 acre parcel coming up the hill. Brian and I had walked that land, and I knew that with the right new build package sited well, someone with a little vision would be smart enough to go for it – and lucky to be there when complete. Western views through a thin tree line bring fantastic sunsets, and in the winter, the view east brings the top of Mansfield into view.
So I visited the site today, as we get closer to final construction to get a peak at how the vision is shaping up. Thanks to our builder and his crews, they should get the new owner in before the New Year. And on a day like today, when the snow covered ridgeline of Mansfield dominates the view on the drive out Route 15, it gives me a warm feeling to have been involved in the project on Steeplebush – and have met such outstanding folks along the way.
