Three Manchester Vermont Real Estate Agencies with Exceptional Reputations
“There are so many reasons to love Southern Vermont. The charming covered bridges and sleepy country lanes, the 360-degree views of the lush Green Mountains, the quintessential white church steeples, the friendly local folks, and, of course, some of the best food in the country, whether it’s found at a humble roadside diner or in an award-winning dining room. In short: If you want a time-out surrounded by idyllic scenery and delicious eats, [Manchester, Vermont] is the place to go.” – Country Living Magazine
There are few towns filled with as much charm as Manchester. Our marble-sidewalk-lined streets, historic homesteads, and welcoming community make it an easy place to call home. It’s no mystery why so many seek refuge here. Early summer is the perfect time to hop in the car and meander the roads around town and you’ll quickly notice that there are no cookie-cutter homes in these parts. From historic, rolling estates to mid-century bungalows, converted one-room schoolhouses, tiny houses, and everything between—there is a place here uniquely for you.
Whether you’re looking to simplify and enjoy a slower pace, or searching for a place to escape to, your perfect Manchester paradise is easily found when you work with one of our experienced local agencies. But you don’t need to take our word for it, here is what their clients have to say:
Endless outdoor adventure. It goes without saying that our miles of snow and dirt trails mean that few days go by without a good dose of mother nature. Situated in close proximity to world-class skiing, nordic trails, and skating in the winter; and in the warmer months, you can hit the Appalachian and Long Trails, explore multiple state park recreation areas, hidden water holes, and enjoy mountain biking, golf, fishing, river tubing and more!
Top shelf dining and access to locally grown food. There are so many incredible dining experiences to be had in Manchester! Restaurants and cafes offer a wide selection of options for every taste. The Manchester Farmers Market runs through the summer from May until October and is located in the heart of town at Adams Park. Local farmers, artisans, and food makers fill the park while live music spills out into the surrounding streets. It’s a producer-only market, where vendors are involved in every aspect of the making process so a great opportunity to ask questions while sampling products and packing a bag to bring home.
Vibrant arts and history scene. Art and history lovers will find so much to do in Manchester. Enjoy a tour with Backroad Discovery Tours where you can visit the first marble quarry, historic hotels, covered bridges, while you enjoy local lore and history along the way. Visit Hildene, the historic Lincoln estate which offers amazing grounds and gardens, informative tours, historical exhibits, floating boardwalk, and a fabulous museum store.
Education and enrichment. Manchester is known for its incredible high school, Burr and Burton Academy. Since its founding in 1829, BBA has been an independent Vermont high school with a public mission. It serves as the local high school for area students, while also attracting students from overseas. Situated at the foot of Mt. Equinox and overlooking picturesque Manchester Village, Burr and Burton is a school with a proud tradition of educating students of diverse backgrounds and talents in a supportive and caring environment. BBA also has a stunning Mountain Campus and a campus extension at Hildene, the Lincoln Family Home. Students at BBA have over 170 courses to choose from and the academic program provides students with a wide range of vigorous educational experiences in academics, athletics, and the arts.
Accessible local resources. There is a low barrier to reach and take advantage of local government services and business resources- expect to get to know your town clerk personally! Vermont has ‘Town Meeting Day’ every year, where town members can show up for the “floor vote” and holler their yeas and nays on budget items. The floor is open for town residents to voice their opinions on what matters to them… and as a small town, our tight-knit community really knows how to show up for one another.
