Circa 1780 Colonial on over 132 acres. Great opportunity to restore an unspoiled gem! The home is not inhabitable and needs total renovation, but has huge potential for possible B&B, retreat or family farm. Acres of hilltop hayfield with beautiful southwesterly views. Two large fields, pasture & large wooded portion sloping toward the Prince River to the west. This property has been in the same family since 1837 and was once part of Great Farm VII. Assessment reflects Chapter 61A.

    This is a shame. I think it could be turned into a real beauty. If I was a little more independent I would maybe pursue it.

    I grew up around this area and it is as nice as the picture of the view makes it look.
    If I could make a living out there I would snap this place up in a heartbeat.

    I live in the next town over. The area is beautiful. A little ways out in the country but still close enough to the necessities. Even if the house was not saveable I would buy this one for the beautiful land.

    I’m not sure that it makes a difference in the purpose of this site but I grew up in Barre and know exactly where that home is. It was purchased last year and torn down for new construction.

      Yes, we always like to know what happens to the houses here. I’m sad to see it’s been torn down (verified it through aerial maps.) Thanks for the update Heather.

    Hi:
    I am the current owner. We did thoroughly investigate saving the house, had several very experienced people look at it. It was structurally unsound, at risk of sudden collapse, and each estimate for saving it was at least 1 million dollars.
