Key Information:

What: Brattleboro is the oldest town in Vermont known for its vibrant arts community. A free thinking community that has made national news for what one writer describes for its "Berkeleyesque" politics. It is a hilly town with lots of activities available for the outdoor enthusiast - hiking, biking, skiing, kayaking etc. 

When: 1753

Where: The Southeastern corner of Vermont along the border with New Hampshire and on the Connecticut River at the mouth of the West River. 

Why: White Christmas is my favorite Christmas movie so I wanted to feature Vermont. However seeing as though there is no such place as Pine Tree, Vermont I selected Brattleboro; as it has been voted by numerous polls and publications as one of the best places to live. I especially liked this editorial from National Geographic. 

How many: 12,049 (2010)

Local Attractions:
- Amy's Bakery Arts Cafe - looks like the perfect place for some amazing baked goods and a good cup of coffee.
- Fireworks Restaurant - the place to go for wood oven pizza and a nice dining environment.
- Top of the Hill Grill - an authentic bbq place where else but at the top of the hill.

A charming tucked away cottage that is still walking distance to town. I like the front porch, wooded lot and all the original detailing.

House #2: $229,000

This in town house has lots of curb appeal and lots of potential. The inside needs quite a bit of updating but it has good light and space planning. 

House #3: $389,000

This 1856 has great history and has been beautifully updated. I especially love the open kitchen and wide plank original floors. 

House #4: $398,500

This house is amazingly sited on a hillside overlooking the river. I love the porches and decks and the way the entry is nestled below the road. 

Have a good weekend everyone! I will be back Monday with a final holiday themed post before shutting down for a week of r&r.
