This former bank had a big price reduction! Circa 1800’s in Vermont. $249,000

February 19, 2024

This former bank in Vermont has had a big price reduction. The Danby Bank was built some time in the 1800’s. It is located on 1/2 acre in Danby, Vermont. The former bank features a covered front porch, large columns, double front doors, tall ceilings and large windows. This would make a unique home. Seems to be lacking some character though. Would be fun to try to put some in. Three bedrooms, one bathroom and 1,874 square feet. $249,000
