Property Description

Experience this unique Southern Vermont property in an exceptionally beautiful setting.The house was built in 1988 originally for two people. It could support a family of four at it's maximum without any change to the infrastructure. The house sits half a mile off the road on a mountain side. The first quarter mile is on a flat ROW gravel driveway, the second quarter mile is a steep gravel driveway to the top. There is room to park two cars right in front of the house.Mountain views to the south, hiking trails among the trees throughout the 26 acres. House, garden, barn and outhouse sit on approx one acre. Garden is currently 30x40 with room to expand below and possibility to create a terraced garden above. This could be used as a small homestead farm with small animals (chickens, goats), increased vegetable production and potential for foraging or growing crops in the woods.There are many trails among the remaining 25+ acres which include a combination of Ash, White Pine, Sugar Maple, Oak, Hickory, Beech and a variety of nut trees.There is a 1000 gallon propane tank buried underground (in case you need to heat with hot water baseboard), I have always used the wood stove in the winter and never needed more than 3 1/2 Cord of wood over the winter.The roof is asphalt shingle which has reached the end of its life. The roof does not leak but will require replacement at some point in the near future.If you enjoy wildlife there is an abundance including, Hawks, Owls, Deer, Bats, Red Fox, Squirrel, Chipmunk and a mountain behind the property that is home to a protected Peregrine Falcon Nest site.There are also an abundance of deer although they usually disappear during hunting season.Winter snowshoeing and cross country skiing and a variety of wild life make this property a fun place to live.Property is surrounded by nature conservancy land.Cherry floors and Maple kitchen cabinets on the first floor with cherry stairs to the second floor.
