The small town of Shelburne, VT, lying on the shores of Lake Champlain, offers a sampling of the best Vermont real estate. Chartered in 1763, the name "Shelburne", or "Shelburn", was chosen to honor the Earl of Shelburne, a celebrated nobleman of the British Parliament. The current population is approximately 7,000. Shelburne real estate provides residents with access to this great community, which is beautiful, quiet and right on Lake Champlain.
At the beginning, Shelburne’s economy was based on farming. In 1810, a few Merino sheep imported from Spain led to an upsurge in sheep-raising. Orchards and fruit growing became a major source of income for farmers in 1880. Today, Shelburne supports a variety of businesses including manufacturers, a wide array of service providers and retail establishments and Wake Robin, Vermont’s largest continuing care retirement community.
Shelburne also recognizes the need for culture with its fine museum and estate. The 1000-acre Shelburne Farms historic landmark is a non-profit working farm whose purpose is to teach and demonstrate the stewardship of natural and agricultural resources. The 45-acre Shelburne Museum has more than 150,000 works, including American folk art, quilts, and textiles, decorative arts, furniture, Impressionist paintings, American paintings, and 17th- 20th-century artifacts displayed in 39 exhibit buildings. Shelburne is also the home of the Vermont Teddy Bear Company, a magical world where bears are carefully hand-crafted.
With the Shelburne Town Beach, four parks, and Shelburne Pond there are many locations for residents to enjoy biking, hiking, boating, fishing, and swimming. The Shelburne Bay Park offers walking or cross-country skiing on a two-mile loop along Lake Champlain, a three-mile bicycle path and picnicking. In addition, Shelburne Farms’ guided tours, the Children’s Farm Yard, and the Walking Trail are free for Shelburne residents.

The previous owners purchased what was then a small ranch styled home with an attached 2 car garage. They then embarked on a total renovation/expansion of the home by tearing off the roof, changing the first floor floor plan and adding the second floor. They then finished it with vinyl exterior siding with PVC trim. You can put those paint brushes away as you'll never need to paint the exterior. Only that wasn't enough, so they built the detached 2+ car garage/barn. Then in 2018 they added the new natural gas boiler and side arm heater. As they readied themselves to move into their forever home they had a change of plans and the present owners were then blessed to purchase in 2019 what was, in essence, an almost new home. But there's more, after moving in the new owners reconfigured the kitchen, making it more open and updated, then added a nice sized closet by the door to the garage. The owners didn't plan to sell, but a professional promotion proved too attractive to refuse, so now it's your turn to be blessed to live in this home that has been lived in very lightly by a young couple.
