Additional Information


We will be building a new home and moving in summer 2019, and would like to sell our homestead in Cabot to a family interested in this lifestyle, either homesteading or farming for income.  We are neighbors with an organic farm and live in an area very supportive of farming.  We have 29 acres on a quiet dead-end road near Cabot.  25 acres of mostly hardwood forest are Current Use, for tax savings and timber use/income.  Light, open-plan timber frame home with high ceilings, modern wood cookstove and Hearthstone woodstove.  2BR, full bath, and office space upstairs.  Conventionally wired for AC.   Home is currently off-grid with solar power, but we will likely hook up to electricity in spring 2019 (unless we find a buyer who wants to remain off-grid) and infrastructure will remain in place for future grid-tie options.  Extensive fertile, raised bed gardens and mature blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, currants and gooseberries, as well as a small mature orchard.  Timber-framed 1.5 story garage/workshop with tall ceilings and lots of natural light.  Cabot is 25 minutes to Montpelier, St. Johnsbury, or Morrisville.  For an extensive property description and more photos, please visit https://sites.google.com/view/cabot-homestead .
