The house could be small and old. We actually love to renovate, remodel and find the beauty in all things old. Our current house is about 1500 SF with no basement and we're just fine. We spend more time outdoors anyway. Any ideas???
Just speaking for this area, there are several nice small towns along Rt. 22A. As you approach Burlington, it gets a little more expensive and crowded. You could also check out the towns around the lakes other than Champlain the vter mentioned. Some of the towns are really tiny - Middlebury is about as small as I would want. I like it here because the cultural offerings are amazing due to Middlebury College (though I have to admit I haven't got around to taking advantage of them yet).

I don't know anything about the schools, but here are a few local real estate examples that may or may not suit you:

being able to walk to town is golden. it is tough because you can't have it all. we can walk across the state of vt out our back door but have to drive to get food all the time. also having farmers stands plus the grocery store, even a small natural foods market is more difficult than just having a well stocked co-op in the sense that we're always bouncing around between places to get everything we want and it ends up more expensive..
