Property for sale

Property is being sold for 195,000.00. This is what I bought it for 14 years ago, it is currently valued at $225,000.00. I have already tried using a lease to own agreement but it was not successful so I would prefer to sell it through traditional means. There are issues with a deposit for an off grid home in VT but there is an organization able to help with that part of the financing.

$100,000-$200,000
Additional Information

Description

Solar powered energy efficient property with all you'll ever need. Experience this unique Southern Vermont property in an exceptionally beautiful setting. Mountain views to the south, hiking trails amongst the trees throughout the 26 acres. Winter snowshoeing and cross country skiing and a variety of wild life make this property a fun place to live.
Cherry floors and Maple kitchen cabinets Wood stove with Propane baseboard heating.
New batteries installed July 2014. New Solar Panels and charge controller installed November 2013.
The house is south facing getting plenty of sun and windows provide excellent light within the house.
House is situated between two major ski areas, Killington and Stratton and only 3 1/2 hours drive to Montreal.
30x40 Vegetable garden with out buildings. Area surrounding garden has potential to triple in size at least.

New driveway installed Spring 2014 as well as new fiber optic cable laid by phone company bringing high speed internet, internet TV and internet phone service.

If you are searching for the property on Google Earth you will need to take a slightly different tack for your search because of the lack of information about this area. Type "Haystack Mountain Pawlet VT 05761" into the search box. In the lower left corner you will see a field (corn field in the summer) and a driveway that appears to come out of it.
 This is the correct location for 3341 VT RT 30 Pawlet 05761. For the best view you will have to exit the street view and use the dial to navigate around.
Appliances that come with the property include woodstove, propane refrigerator, dishwasher, generator and all the solar utility equipment. Optional are propane dryer and washing machine.
Personally I think the property would work best with a mix of farming activities. Small animals such as chickens, goats/ growing vegetables for farmers markets (in the heart of farmers markets country)/ possible income from sugaring/possibility for retreat income/small scale logging to maintain the health of the land and animal diversity and a perfect property for both permaculture and silviculture activities.
