Privacy and Proximity. Rural peace yet only a 10 minute drive from Montpelier. This classic Vermont Farmhouse when viewed from the road has been renovated and expanded into country contemporary when viewed from the land. Sitting on 10 acres of fenced pastures, orchards, pond, and woods with a extraordinary 20 mile view of the Worcester range and Mt Hunger, the house was renovated to access that view. A Great Room was created with cathedral ceiling, floor to ceiling stone fireplace and a wall of glass looking out over the deck and fields to the mountains beyond. There is glass slider to a hot tub room on one side and a glass slider enclosed screen porch on the other, accessed through french doors from the great room. The 3 bay attached garage connects thru the typical Vermont mudroom entry but includes a wet bar, beverage refrigerator, wine cave, pantry and a utility, laundry and full bathroom on the way to the front door and to the country kitchen. with kitchen table and more formal dining room adjacent. The in-law suite has a separate exterior entrance and also connects to the kitchen. It has an open sitting room/bedroom with en suite 3/4 bath with access to the back deck. Upstairs the house has a loft/study, master bedroom, walk in closet and full bath on the great room side of the house, and 3 bedrooms with a second 3/4 bath on the guest side of the house.
The farm was a sheep farm or the last 30 years. Before that it was for horses and the property has a riding ring, paddock, 24x24 run-in barn in the pasture with water and electric, and adjacent to the house, an amazing renovated 100 year old barn/ with potentially 4 stalls, tack area, large hayloft with elevator and heated ground level workshop and man cave. Attached is a 35x14x10 shed, currently used as an RV garage but designed to be converted to two large stalls with atrium/tack room opening into the paddock. The barn has a tractor garage door on the side opening on to the alley between barn and house. Farm equipment and tools are negotiable.
There are two additional 7 acre wooded parcels adjacent , one with approved house, septic and well site and one recently subdivided. Both have potential views with some clearing and are accessed from Jacobs Road.
Almost all appliances, the standing seam metal roof, high efficiency furnace/boiler, water heater, electrical service panels and replacement thermal windows are all new in the last few years. The house was deemed ideally oriented for a solar electric installation, and solar hot water, and there is room for a green house on the south side of the house. Some furniture items are included and some are available to the prospective buyer. Excluded are some art and a few lighting fixtures.
The opportunity exists to insert personal preference on renovations and to obtain price reduction should a potential buyer wish to complete renovations themselves.
Asking $599,900 for the farm.

  • 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.
