For Sale By Owner – Location will be given to interested parties for our and new owner's privacy. Property is located about 10 min from Danville, 20 min from St. Johnsbury, 40 min to Barre and an hour and 20 minutes to Burlington, near the end of a dead end road well off the beaten path. Plenty of privacy and peace and quiet, yet close enough to all of one's needs. The property is off grid currently with 12 solar panels and generator backup but the last pole for electric is very close and electric could easily be brought up if you prefer or wish to tie to the grid.
Please read below for details. .
House sits at a comfortable 1800' elevation affording gorgeous sunsets and almost 180 degree views. There is a large Kitchen with double windows over the sink and 6' french doors to a deck, lots of natural maple cabinets and more than enough room for eat in kitchen or 3×6 island. The stove is propane and has a stainless and glass hood. Five pendants provide abundant light along with under the cabinet lighting. Find the nice large Pantry off the kitchen with tons of room along with Laundry area for washer and dryer, laundry sink, and space for 2 freezers. The open floor plan continues with a large living area including a propane decorative stove, a large dining area, a bedroom with room for a king size bed. All on the same floor! along with a full bath with tub.
The other half of the house is a large workshop w/ A new 16×12' addition boasting 6' French doors. A 10×10' utility room for boiler, well tanks, solar equipment, etc. is just off the workshop area. Above is a large storage area 10 x 25 feet with stair access. The house and attached workshop total 1700 sq ft.
Tile and bamboo flooring in the house area, Metal roofing w/barn board siding -alot of which is new! There's a good spot to put in a pond if you want and we're leaving the 'duck house' as well.
Outside you'll find a convenient Livestock shed with fenced area just off the driveway. Opposite is a Large Orchard which is also fenced (7' high). There's a 24 x60 metal greenhouse with heat (Propane) and Two 12×44 metal greenhouses to grow your own vegetables or sell to the local markets. Behind the house is a large 12×20' building w/garage door used as a workshop surrounded by pretty stone walls, and a year round chicken coop off the side. Have horses or goats? – there's a developed sweet grass area for your own 'organically' grown hay or pasture land!
Property has producing apple, dolgo crabapple (for the best ever clear red jelly), cherry, elderberry, plum, cherry plum, blueberry, raspberry, asparagus, currents, horseradish, different willows for many varied uses, and perennial herb/medicinal plants. Many more fruit trees have been planted for future production – more cherry, plums, nanking cherry, 3 pear trees, more cherry-plums, and seaberry. (That's over 50 fruit trees!) Plus there is plenty more space to plant even more varieties in the 7' high fenced orchard area. (we grow organically so no worries about poisons here)
House is currently set up for one bed/ one bath open plan with LR, Dr, Kitchen, and bedroom areas as that's all we needed, but the floor plan easily lends itself (purposefully) to expansion into the large attached workshop area to make the house a 2 or 3 BR, 2 or 3 Bath with just a little work. Just add a few interior walls and finishing touches. Current bedroom area could then become a day nursery, playroom, study, office area, sitting, whatever you need!
House and workshop are totally insulated with 6” exterior walls with Baseboard for heating. We put in a good deep well and an oversized 3 BR septic (for the possible expansion to 3BR- we planned ahead).
There's a great spot for a fire pit with a view of the mountains for relaxing and a very private area behind the house for play, parking, or parties. About 5+ acres is cleared and soil enhanced with organic compost for growing, and the rest is covered with large trees. The land is in current use for low taxes with a forestry plan in place. Plan calls for selective logging soon but we postponed for the new owners to decide what they would like to do. Approximately 8,000 dollars (depending on the market) for the marketable timber would be yours as well.
Make more trails, go hunting, enjoy the woods. Sit and take in the view and the sunsets. A great place to retire or homestead with a growing family.
So much opportunity here with almost all of the hard work already done.
The last pic is the opposite side of out building with the garage door. Darker bldg to the right of driveway in the view shot is the livestock bldg and not the house! We've been packing so please excuse bare walls and boxes.
Included with sale will be a 'map' of property showing locations of planted varieties of trees and bushes and sheets of info on most of them. We'll be glad to give your our 'future plans' ideas and sketches on how we were going to expand the house and garden and the best places to put what varieties.
We love it here and know you would too. Hate to leave but family is important and they have moved too far away to be able to visit often! We are hoping for grandchildren soon!
Contact us through SurvivialRealty to discuss any questions you might have or for more pics. Please include phone number or email address so we can call you or email back.
We'd love to talk to you!
