This beautiful close-to-town, yet rural location features a sunny, spacious, well-kept, historic farmhouse situated on 170 acres of pristine, working farmland on the New Haven River. Both the home and the gambrel barn are listed on the Vermont historic registry and are eligible for National registry. Originally build by the Nash family in 1831, this property has a long history of being a place of both respite and gathering.

The home was built by a master craftsman and has remained in excellent condition. It includes beautiful open, sunny spaces and an open floor plan on the main floor that is rare for old farmhouses. There are 4 large, comfortable bedrooms and 2 smaller rooms that can be used as bedrooms or office space. Many of the floors in the home are wide board pine including a room that has original pumpkin pine flooring.
While this home would be perfect for a large family, our family wanted to open our doors and share this beautiful spot so we created several home businesses here including an organic vegetable operation, popular farmstay bnb, and a place for community events and weddings.

With its on the river location, this property has plenty of rich farmable land, abundant bird, fish and wildlife, and much opportunity to enjoy your summer days dipping in the river and relaxing on or fishing fishing from the many secluded pebble beaches. Besides thousands of feet of river frontage that border the entire south side of the property, there are also 65 acres of wooded land with walking trails, and 100+ acres of farmable meadows, some of which include spectacular views of the green mountains. There are also 20 fenced acres perfect for livestock or horses and a large gambrel roof barn with stalls and an open hayloft.

This unique home and property has truly been a place of our dreams and we're hoping to find someone who will love it as much as we have!

  • Fraud & Scam Awareness
    Unfortunately, there are people that will use internet sites like ForSaleByOwner.com to run all manner of scams on users. We do all that we can to prevent the willful misuse of our platform, however; every day, the scams get more and more sophisticated. We ask that our users be cognizant of the risk and review the following basic ways to recognize and avoid being scammed.
  • Recognizing and Avoiding Scams:

    • Use secure, traceable transactions when making payments - Do not pay a deposit by wire transfer, prepaid money card, gift card, or other non-traditional payment method. Also, refuse to make "overpayments" and never enter into "handshake" deals without a contract.
    • Don't accept suspect cashier/certified checks or money orders - Banks will process and cash the fakes, then hold you responsible.
    • Never give out financial or personally identifiable information - This includes banking and credit card information, your birthdate, Social Security/Social Insurance Numbers, PayPal account etc.
    • Suspicious communications - Watch for parties communicating using poor grammar, spelling or those who send nonsensical messages. Be wary of parties that are only willing to text/email and those that will never speak on the phone or that refuse to meet in person. Generally these people will claim to be "travelling" and unavailable to talk or located in a foreign country and unable to speak other than via text or email.
    • Deals Too Good to be True - If the list price is obviously too low, or the terms are too generous as compared to the market, it’s likely a scam.
    • Don’t be pressured to act immediately - Scammers typically try to make you think a listing is in high demand in order to push you into immediate action without consulting family, friends, or financial advisors. Say no to high pressure sales tactics.
  • Who Should I notify about fraud or scam attempts?
