167 Spear Street
The popular Cape Cod-style house originated in New England during the 17th century. It was designed with a steep roof to prevent buildup of snow and ice. This Cape, set back from Spear St. and anchored on a knoll, meets all the traditional Cape criteria, and is a great choice for enjoying Vermont winters in comfort. The owners originally built this home in 1987. The main floor has a side entry that doubles as a mud room/laundry room. From there you enter the kitchen, which has sliding glass doors that open out to a deck overlooking the 12.7 acre lot and LaPlatte River. Hardwood floors are under foot in the formal dining room and sunny, west-facing living room. A wood-burning fireplace, den/office space, and a powder room complete the first floor. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms, each with its own personality. A large, unfinished basement is ready to be turned into extra living space. Outside, a 2-car garage and covered breezeway contribute to the comfortable country setting. A new roof was installed in 2019. Conveniently located on the Shelburne/Charlotte town line, it is just minutes to Shelburne Village and short ride into Burlington. If you’re looking for a traditional New England home, this one could be it!
