Additional Information

Property is on town-maintained dirt road. River frontage along length of pasture, below the residence. Pasture is contiguous, but in four sections. Perfect for grazing or growing hay, or agriculture. Above the residence is about 3 acres of open land, much of which could also be used for agriculture, and includes the bull barn. Forested land covers about 30 acres, and has in the past been used for maple sugaring (estimate about 350-400 maple trees); many of the sugaring lines are still available for use. Across the river are hundreds of acres of conserved land. Beautiful mountain views. Next to the barn is an old silo with historic value, made of ceramic blocks. This is a gorgeous piece of property with long views of the river and mountain range, open pasture and land near the house. Besides livestock and agriculture, the property has generated $40,000 per year thru the guest house. The studio could be easily fixed up and generate rental income or used for farmworker housing. The residence is large, solid, in excellent condition, with many beautiful old features.
