Farm parcels like this one are rare to the marketplace, and this one is in the National Register of Historic Places! Comprised of a large farmhouse with attached shed/barn, massive barn that housed 200+ dairy cows when in full operation, and more than 50 acres of pasture spanning two sides of the road with extensive frontage on the Mad River. The dairy production ceased several years ago, but it had been a working dairy farm for generations. The farmhouse has all of the the charm that comes with an 1800s homestead, and includes a two-bedroom accessory apartment. The main barn has tons of potential for a variety of uses, but is in need of some structural reinforcement. A portion of the agricultural fields are currently leased to a neighboring farmer, but could easily be reclaimed for future farming or livestock purposes. A wonderful opportunity for an aspiring farmer to bring this historic farm back to life. See MLS # 4787012 for the property being offered with +/- 117 acres.
Ready to continue a legacy from 1825? On property that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (Google “Jones Pestle Farmstead”)? This house, barns (one of the oldest in Vermont) and open fields are unique because they are preserved much the way they were in the 1800’s. Two of the buildings come complete with a lot of the types of tools that were used when this farm was in its “hay-day”. You’d likely resort to more modern equipment, but the preservation of these items offers a glimpse back in time. What were once tools can now be displayed as art!Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the Historic Jones-Pestle farmstead consists of four contributing buildings: a c. 1840 Greek Revival farmhouse, a c. 1885 horse barn, a c. 1885 granary, and a c. 1825 English barn. The farmstead is arranged in typical 19th century fashion, with a core of residential and agricultural buildings straddling the main road (Bridge Street) and surrounded by farmland. The farmhouse is sited close to the road and oriented to it, facing southwest. The outbuildings are sited nearby, with the horse barn adjacent across the door yard and the main barn and granary located directly across the road, facing the house and horse barn. The exterior facades must remain unaltered. However, bring your inspiration and imagination to update the interior spaces to suit your needs. Also included is the original 8.6 acre "wood lot" that was part of the farmstead.
