From the Zillow listing:


36 SHOREHAM ACRES TO LIVE AND PLAY ON. Remember the books about the joy of handmade houses? This could have been one of them with its old post-and-beam construction, beautiful pine floors, antiques, and funky creative spaces–but with modern conveniences like electricity and water! Besides all the land that comes with this house–much of it hillside and with plenty of maples to tap–you get nearly 2,000 square feet of living space, excellent insulation, a drilled well and septic, a pond, and end-of-road privacy. Renovation/trimming out will be required but it’s now quite livable with many old and new elements to spark your creativity. The house is just a mile from the junction of Vermont Routes 22A and 74–just 15 minutes into Middlebury–so you’ll be close to a convenience store, the Shoreham Inn, apple and strawberry picking, the Shoreham library, and so much more.
