October 10, 2018

I love the setting for this house! Built in 1820. Located on five acres in Bristol, Vermont. There is a detached two story barn on the property. There is an attached one story shop on the barn. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,256 square feet. $299,750 New Price: $279,000

From the Zillow listing:


This 1820 Farmhouse is a magical mix of old and new. All the charm of original woodwork and hardware with modern kitchen appliances including stainless finishes and commercial 6-burner gas range with vented range hood, super efficient Buderus Boiler with hot water storage tank and, to literally top it all off, a 300 Watt Solar array on the attached storage annex. The floor plan is traditional colonial foursquare farmhouse with central front door entrance flanked by large rooms to the left and right that have been updated with a modern kitchen, a first floor bedroom and 3/4 bath with a “no barrier” 5 foot walk in shower. As great as the house is, the added value will be evident to the hobby or career farmer. The detached two story barn can be re-purposed for many agricultural uses from vegetable, bush and tree fruit to poultry and livestock production. In addition there is an attached one story shop for woodworking, machine or art work. The lot is flat, 90% open and all prime agricultural quality. Combined with the location, this is the perfect property for a “Farm to Table” Entrepreneur! Agricultural Tourism anyone?
