I love this house and property! From the kitchen sink, the fireplace, the bathtub, the barn, the views, the solitude. This is a dreamhouse. Built in 1812! Located on 13.22 acres in Shaftsbury, Vermont. New roof, foundation, chimneys, electrical system, and furnace. Hardwood floors throughout, walkout basement and I love that vintage stove! One bedroom, one bathroom, and 924 square feet. $249,500

From the Zillow listing:

Newer roof, chimneys, foundation, electrical, furnace. Spend more time enjoying life with only 924 sq ft to clean!

Hardwood floors throughout. Walk-out basement with concrete floor, all utilities, laundry area… much nicer than you’d expect for a 200+ year old house! Large rear deck for soaking up panoramic views. Antique barn restored with new roof, sills, siding… has underground electric & water, 2 stalls, tack room, storage room, and hayloft above. Expansive pasture/meadow and horse track. Along the eastern border is the Little White Creek, perfect for cooling off on hot summer days. Current owners purchased neighboring parcel (3.28 acres) so it is already subdivided and buildable, with separate driveway access and power… Or keep all 13.22 acres for yourself. This well-loved & carefully curated home is ready for you!
