WHAT: A house with five bedrooms and seven bathrooms, with a one-bedroom guest apartment

HOW MUCH: $1,300,000

SIZE: 6,134 square feet

SETTING: Stowe is a ski town in northern Vermont, just east of the Green Mountains. This house is in a local historic district near the center of town, about two blocks from restaurants and shops and seven miles from the slopes, which are surrounded by state forest and trails. The listing agent notes that while mountain and resort properties have long been popular in the area, buyers have more recently started to modernize and preserve older houses in the town’s historic core, like this one, which dates to 1850. A town walking path winds through a lightly wooded area just past the lawn.

INDOORS: The house has two wings, the street-side 19th-century section, and a newer addition behind that. These are bridged by a heated three-car garage. Both have full kitchens and living rooms, with broad mountain views throughout.

The older wing retains some of its original architectural detail, including exposed ceiling beams and some wide-board pine floors. The living and dining areas are part of a bright open-plan space with windows on three sides and a brick fireplace in the living area. Many of the windowpanes are the original wavy glass. Kitchen updates include granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances and custom cabinets. The older wing has three bedrooms.

Common areas in the newer wing are on an open floor plan with brick floors and a large wood-burning fireplace. The fireplace has a brick surround and a simple wood mantel with some decorative paneling.

French doors built into a wall of glass open to a stone patio, while a bay window in a dining nook takes advantage of mountain views. An island separates the living and dining areas from the kitchen, which has granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances, as well as wood cabinets in the same blue-gray as the mantel in the living area.

The newer wing has two bedrooms upstairs, including a large suite with a fireplace and a pitched beamed ceiling, as well as a small sitting area. A hallway leads into a bright family room over the garage with windows on opposing walls. The lower-level apartment is an open-plan space with a kitchen, a wood stove and glass doors opening up to a patio.

OUTDOOR SPACE: The house is on 0.57 acre, with stone walls and a lawn edged by trees.
