1850's Historic Farmhouse with nice easterly view of Lake Champlain's Inland Sea - one of North America's best bass fishing locations, and the Green Mountains (Mt Mansfield, Camel's Hump, Jay Peak).
Lake access approximately 150' away via public boat launch. Great fishing, great water quality. Beautiful sunset views, bordered by land trust property. Perennial gardens, nice yard, all in need of TLC. All utilities in place: septic, town water, electricity, telephone lines, driveway.
The attic is as big as the footprint of the house, and easily could be an extra living space or another set of living quarters. This historical house has survived both of Lake Champlain's historical floods of 1859 and 2011. It sits on a high and dry piece of land!
We have had the Vermont Spirit Detectives visit this house numerous times, and every time very successful with friendly findings of children, men and women's voices, foot steps and noises. (Go to their website and you can experience sessions held in this house as they are posted)
We are not sure, but the Underground Railroad may have been part of this house's history. This house remained in the McBride/Durham family until approximately 30 years ago. These people are who we believe we have had contact with. This would make a GREAT B&B!
