There is a small barn on a concrete, solid foundation. Has stored hay and farm equipment but is now empty. Has one small stall for a goat or sheep. No fencing, watering or irrigation.

Farmer housing


Farmer housing details

Beautiful colonial home with 4 bedrooms, move-in condition, currently empty. Has excellent heating, original windows, wide boards, room layout, 2 bathrooms and newly (2008) redone kitchen. Perfect for tearoom or gallery. Could rent it and build smaller home on one of the potential lots.

Equipment and machinery


Equipment and machinery details

The farmer who hayed the fields has equipment. He has suffered a stroke; his sons could work with you, or the Spencer farmers down the road have shown interest in haying the fields now that mr. Adams can no longer do it. Adams tapped some of the property's maples, and has all that tubing and bucket equipment. We recommend contacting Spencers.

Additional Information


Please see Four Seasons Realty,  Sothebys,  in Rutland, VT and contact  Sandi Reiber for full description and
many photos of home and some of surrounding land.  We have total reports on the managed forest prepared by
Randy Wilcox, certified forester.  Forest, conserved by the VT Land Trust, needs to be managed, and is an income-producing resource when harvests are done about every 15 to 20 years.    
The 7 acres of fields are ready for someone with new energy to improve them from scratch.  The advantage is they
are excellent sandy soil (once part of the Champlain Sea) and totally in organic state.
The road has a mix of modest homes to the north of this property and very elegant horse farms and affluent homes with acreage around them to the south.  There are farmers down the road who would like to hay or plant these fields.  They would be good counselors and advisors on such problems as deer brouse.  
The neighborhood is fine, close to the historic townline of Wallingford.  The farm is one of the earliest in Clarendon still in fine condition, with dry cobble-stone basement,  full attic for storage, and museumlike features in front hall, with a folk art mural listed in Early Vermont Wall Paintings by McGrath, Dartmouth Univ. Press
