Stowe’s “Dream House” has found new owners! The 2011 HGTV Dream House at Spruce Peak in Vermont’s Stowe Mountain Resort was sold with the help of New England Landmark Realty (NELR) super agent Susi Benoit in April of this year. The original winners of the home in 2011, Eric and Catherine Makstenieks, sold the house for 2.7 million to an active family of seven. The Boston family purchased this second home in hopes of making new and lasting memories. They have five children between the ages of 10 months and 9 years and they all ski except the youngest, making this mountain location a perfect fit. They already have some modifications in mind, the most prominent being the addition of a fourth bedroom over the garage to fit their family needs. In addition to the mountain location, they love the existing open floor plan, which will allow for plenty of family interaction, bonding, comfort, and growth.
New England Landmark Realty’s Susi Benoit will tell you that the house practically sold itself, being a home that anyone would dream to own. As Fox News said, “From the jaw dropping custom designed home to the out of this world views, it truly is a dream home” Stowe's HGTV Dream House. The Dream House architect, Paul Rousselle, said that the main floor of the house has, “this feeling of being in the tree limbs”. This magical tree-house hideaway has two master bedrooms and a bunk room that sleeps eight, a gourmet kitchen and wonderfully creative living spaces (www.hgtv.com), making it the perfect gathering place with easy access to all that Stowe Mountain Resort has to offer. The recent buyers will certainly have plenty of opportunities to experience the mountain and create many memories in and around their new home and are excited to become a part of the Stowe community.
New England Landmark Realty was thrilled to be the real estate company chosen for the sale of the “Dream Home”, selected by the sellers and amidst such fierce competition in the Stowe real estate market. The sellers and buyers appreciated the intimate home buying experience that Benoit of NELR was able to provide them, driven by the company’s mission to provide uncompromising honesty and unparalleled integrity while realizing client’s goals and dreams.
