Murs Woods, a 160 acre mountain estate listed by Vermont Country Properties Sotheby's International Realty, recently sold for $4.35 million. The transaction represents the highest residential real estate sale in Vermont in the last 12 months.
Murs Woods is a remarkable 160-acre mountain retreat sited within minutes of Stratton Mountain Resort. Designed as a family estate, it encompasses a gracious Adirondack-style main residence, airy carriage barn guest house, and an authentic Michigan log house, each with its own serene setting overlooking a 5-acre pond. Twelve acres of manicured and landscaped grounds open to woodlands and trails. The property also includes a caretaker's cottage, post-and-beam barn, and small hunting camp.
"There's no doubt that currently Vermont holds great opportunity for buyers," said Lisa Coneeny, President and Principal Broker at Vermont Country Properties Sotheby's International. "Within the luxury home market in particular, extraordinary estates with acreage are available at exceptional price points."
The residence was listed exclusively by the Stratton office of Vermont Country Properties Sotheby's International Realty. The listing broker, Diana Stugger, has specialized in Stratton luxury real estate for more than 30 years.
Stugger connected with the Murs Woods property: "Once in every real estate agent's career there is a property with which one feels a synergy. For me, Murs Woods makes that association. I am delighted that Murs Woods has been purchased by a couple who will realize the property's original intent and make it a cornerstone of their family legacy. This sale has fulfilled my career."
