Historic House Listings

Sold. Has potential! Circa 1850. One acre in Vermont. $119,000

October 27, 2020

This home has a lot of potential! I see pocket doors, hardwood floors, and great windows. This home was built in 1850. It is located on .97 acres in Bennington, Vermont. That is an amazing built-in! I am not familiar with that area, but I kind of feel like they are asking too much for this property and house. It will require a lot of work. The property has a park like setting with a circular drive and a detached two car garage. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 3,808 square feet. $119,000
