Located on 50 private acres, this seasonal cottage built in 1984 offers many modern amenities with a rustic twist. The home features a 2-level deck with a commanding view of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains! A well-equipped conventional kitchen/dining room flows into the spacious living room with a door to the main deck - a great spot to relax and take in the lake views. A large, heat pumping Defiant woodstove keeps the cottage warm on cold nights. There is a convenient 1st floor bedroom in the southeast corner of the home with a full-sized bath with fiberglass tub/shower. The rear door enters into a mudroom with washer and set tub. Drying is "on the line" for the ultimate camping experience. The 2nd floor is split between 2 large bedrooms and a 2nd full sized bath with skylight. The front bedroom also has sliding doors to a second deck with arguably the best lake views. The property also includes a garden shed, garage with 2nd story, and covered wood shed. You'll enjoy the best hunting, fishing, and hiking on your own private nature preserve! With updated permitting and improvements, this home could be upgraded to a year-round 2nd home or primary residence. State soil maps indicate suitability for additional on-site septic. With 50 acres, there are endless possibilities, like building a brand new residence at a higher elevation with even more privacy and better lake views; keeping the existing cottage as a seasonal guest house or Airbnb! Don't wait!
Listed on the State Register of Historic Places in Vermont, this complex of farm buildings, known as Valley Ridge Farm, includes a rambling wood frame, Cape-style 5 bedroom farmhouse, an elaborate late bank barn, a curved, quadrant-shaped sheep barn, and a gable-fronted carriage barn with an Italianate cupola. Now a conserved property with the Vermont Land Trust, the estate endeavors to find a buyer that is preservation-minded and committed to rehabilitating and maintaining historic buildings. Traversed by nearly 2,000 feet of the Lemon Fair River, this bio-diverse, wildlife rich property also includes 2 ponds, 5+ acres of sugar bush, 130+ acres of tillable soil, 65+ acres of managed forest. At first glance, it is obvious that the buildings all need much work, however, you'll be pleasantly surprised once you look closer and see the 'good bones'. The farmhouse features large rooms, original wood floors, doors and trim, a very solid foundation, frame and straight ridgeline. The timberframe structures of the large barns are in decent shape and all appear to be worth restoring. Ready for its breath of life, this amazing historic property is ready to be restored to the grandeur of its earlier days. Property to convey in "as is" condition. (Sale subject to receipt of license to sell. VT Land Trust has 90 day first right of refusal).
