This year, DIY Network is pulling out all the stops to reinvent a dated 1960s ranch-style home, filling it with vintage goods, high-end finishes and natural materials that lend a “rustic meets refined” ambience. Perched on prime waterfront property with 250 feet of direct frontage on Lake Champlain, the two-bedroom, two-bath home features upper and lower decks with pristine views that afford a seamless connection to some of Vermont’s most beautiful surroundings. Burlington serves as an ideal backdrop with a picturesque downtown, a wide array of activities for outdoors enthusiasts and a vibrant foodie scene featuring craft breweries, chocolateries and fantastic farm-to-table restaurants.

  3. I’m in love it’s the perfect place to forget about the world and be at peace

  4. sandra hane says

    I would love a place to retire.

  5. I am retired and I gave my home to my daughter. I would really love to win this home, because I need a place away from my family to live out the few years I have left to live. I have two genetic autoimmune diseases and I am so tired all the time. I also have osteoarthritis and COPD. I just want to live out the remaining time in peace.

  6. Cynthia Hill says

    Always been my dream!

  7. Iracema Patton says

    Winning a house like this would be a dream. It’s something that would never happen to me in real live. I’m in my 50’s,and live paycheck to paycheck,just scraping by. My daughter and I rent a old run down house and it’s barely affordable. She will graduate HS next yr. It’s always been a dream of mine to live in New England. It reminds me of Germany where I grew up.

  8. Helen Jacobi says

    Our home was transferred to our daughter in St. Louis. We need to leave Florida but do not want to move in with them. It would be wonderful to win this location. Retired couple!

  9. This looks fabulous–such a nice location–so relaxing so one can read books take walks, sit and cogitate, dream, and enjoy life. would be great place to entertain and i think many of family and friends would love to come and visit
    Would love to win this!!

  10. ALAN IVES says

    I used to live in Burlington when I was in college and have had regrets of leaving ever since, so what a gem this house is ! A real special home in a special place ! Wonderful details ! It’s everything I would want !!

  11. Beautiful home! I can definitely see myself relaxing on those back decks!

  12. Monique Skarphol says

    Its a beautiful home with an axing view. I would love to win this as a peaceful getaway retreat.

  13. Darenda Walker says

    My husband had a lung transplant. I’m a nurse want to be retired. I’ve worked hard last 50 years. This would be a perfect downsized home.

  14. Supposedly they’re going to remodel this gorgeous home? I don’t see why.. It’s great the way it is! Unless they’re just redoing flooring and whatnot to make it more structurally sound there’s no reason to change anything.
    On a second note, I’d love to win, but just imagining the fed and state taxes, fees for title, insurance, hazards, and then yearly taxes… It’s a lot of money. Hopefully one could put that extra 50k towards the fees and be covered.

  15. Alma Roberts says

    I can just imagine how beautiful this will be in the Fall. I would love to live here and enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness the American way. A lovely white picket fence would be no more a dream.

  16. The tranquil presents of this home is my desired spirit.So beautiful, surrounded by Gods Gift. “NATURE”! SO WELL DESIGNED! THE GRACE OF LOVE RUNS RIGHT THROUGH IT. Thank You. Constance Lesueur. BLESSINGS.
