http://www.AboveTheCloudsVT.com - Above the Clouds' - so named because on some mornings, it is actually…. above the clouds. This 18,000+ square foot residence sited on 15 acres is beyond breathtaking and overlooks the Green Mountains of Vermont. Perched high above Stowe, Vermont, this enduring and dramatic estate was created with a a commitment to using local and natural materials wherever possible, imparting a sense of durability and a unique beauty. The beauty of the natural rock formations and the stunning mountain views which rise from the valley below celebrate an art form no man could create.
This home overlooks four seasons of Green Mountain majesty that inspire a rarely available appreciation of nature. Here, crisp pristine air clears the mind and readies the body for an adventure in living.
From the rock ledge canyon-like approach to the enormous rocks onto which the home is perched, this enduring and dramatic estate was created with a commitment to local, natural materials wherever possible, imparting a sense of durability and a unique beauty.
The site's dramatic rock ledges helped to inspire architectural designer G.A. McDermott of Stowe, who, in combination with the owners, designed this one-of-a-kind classic that celebrates the joy of living amongst the richness and beauty of Vermont's natural environment.
The exterior quality is evidenced by the exclusive use of white marble from Danby, Vermont - this same marble has been used in the construction of the White House in Washington, D.C.
Enter the house through hand carved wood doors into the foyer which opens into a dining gallery with marble floors and a cathedral skylight, a half-spiral suspended staircase and a "Phantom" chandelier. Light pours in from all directions, creating the illusion of being aloft. Concentrating on anything but the vista is difficult.
