Listed on the State Register of Historic Places in Vermont, this complex of farm buildings, known as Valley Ridge Farm, includes a rambling wood frame, Cape-style 5 bedroom farmhouse, an elaborate late bank barn, a curved, quadrant-shaped sheep barn, and a gable-fronted carriage barn with an Italianate cupola. Now a conserved property with the Vermont Land Trust, the estate endeavors to find a buyer that is preservation-minded and committed to rehabilitating and maintaining historic buildings.
Traversed by nearly 2, 000 feet of the Lemon Fair River, this bio-diverse, wildlife rich property also includes 2 ponds, 5+ acres of sugar bush, 130+ acres of tillable soil, 65+ acres of managed forest.
At first glance, it is obvious that the buildings all need much work, however, you’ll be pleasantly surprised once you look closer and see the ‘good bones’. The farmhouse features large rooms, original wood floors, doors and trim, a very solid foundation, frame and straight ridgeline. The timber frame structures of the large barns are in decent shape and all appear to be worth restoring. Ready for its breath of life, this amazing historic property is ready to be restored to the grandeur of its earlier days. Property to convey in as is condition. (Sale subject to receipt of license to sell. VT Land Trust has 90 day first right of refusal).
