One of a kind property on 103 beautiful acres!

Enjoy complete privacy set 1/2 mile back from the road, surrounded by nature. Off-grid, solar fixer upper home is perched on a knoll with stunning 125 degree views. This is complemented by a small pond, open pasture, and 30' X 40' barn with built-in chicken coop, horse stalls, and full second floor (over 2,000 square feet total). 103-acre property is mostly wooded, with several acres cleared for pasture.

The expansive property boasts a long list of stunning natural features:

- Several winding streams, including one with enough flow for making power (micro-hydro)

- Spring-fed pond with plenty of water to be expanded

- Wide trails for hiking, cross-county skiing, snowmobiling, horseback riding

- Sugarbush with up to 2,000 taps and acres of other trees

- Loads of wildlife, including fox, moose, deer and owls

- Over 2,000 ft of river frontage with a striking waterfall and couple of the best swimming holes in the area

- Natural spring with 150 gallon spring box (this used to provide all the water to the home)

Recent improvements include drilled well, two European woodstoves, refrigerator, kitchen stove, solar system, Honda generator and weatherization improvements to crawlspace and attic. (The interior photos in this listing are a couple years old.)

Excellent cell service (ATT) and high speed Internet (DSL) available. Property is in the Vermont Current Use program, so property taxes are discounted by almost 50%, which saves thousands of dollars every year.

With all that this land has to offer, the possibilities here are endless: renovate or build the home of your dreams, start a farm, create a retreat getaway spot, subdivide, and the list goes on. In addition to current house site and pastures, there is an additional house site of several acres which is excluded from Current Use. Barn also has loads of potential for animals, living space, home-based business, workshop or storage.
