Love the pond with the little island! Beautiful river! This home was built in 1857. It is located on 20.24 acres in West Topsham, Vermont.

There are two ponds, one with a little island. The village looks like a postcard and is often photographed and titled quintessential small town Vermont. Six bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,524 square feet. $295,000

From the Zillow listing:


The Vermont Dream! 1857 farm house with attached beautiful timber framed barn in quaint picturesque village on 20.24 acres of bottomland. 2 dug ponds (one with a whimsical island!) with an additional 2,300 feet of river frontage on the crystal clear Waits River offer plenty of the angler. With 2 additional potential building sites and the remainder bottomland ag land, let your small farmstead dreams run wild! The home has a new furnace and well pump, but will require some TLC to polish up this diamond in the rough. Amazing potential with this property that is 25 minutes to down town Barre City, 35 minutes to the capital Montpelier and just over an hour to the Burlington Airport. This home and village are commonly photographed as they are the quintessential small town Vermont.
