From the Zillow listing:


Charming 1800’s Colonial/Farmhouse style home located in the Village of West Charleston, yet also offering 17 beautiful acres of land. The house sits on a spacious in town lot with a private drive to the majority of the acreage atop the hill behind the house with a picturesque Vermont country setting (approx. 50% open pasture/field and 50% slopping woodland). Ideal pasture or hay-land for animals, recreational use and potential to subdivide off a building site with privacy and long range views. The home is a classic 2.5 story farmhouse with 4 bedrooms & 2.5 baths, built well, has a good foundation, updated metal roof, drilled well and an older septic that is in need replacement, sellers have priced the property accordingly. Plenty of potential to keep as a spacious single family home and/or convert to a duplex as it had been at one time, no zoning in Charleston! Situated across the street from the Clyde River and just down the road from Charleston Pond. This property is need of some updating/TLC in terms of exterior paint, interior cosmetics, etc. Priced in as-is condition with motivated sellers.
