    Such a great all American house! Someone save it please! Especially that adorable room with the sailboat wallpaper!

    I also would love to see this home saved. It looks like it is a 1960/1970’s time capsule, decor wise. Just a little sad, like the owner passed away or went into a nursing home. It could be charming again.

    There’s so much to love here and fifteen acres. Hope the seller agrees to sell contents with the property. A little treasure.

    That vintage wallpaper with the sailboats is wonderful. Wish I could find a pattern like that.

    Aaugh!!….Kelly, just when I thought I’d never see another Cape Cod you find this must have. 69K and 15 ACRES in Vermont? I really do want it. ? Tears, sighs and probably cookies. ?

    This sounds perfect but it depends what you want to do with it. It looks to me that just about anything colonial has been pulled out and the house has been renovated several time over the years. Do you think that you could restore it back to the colonial period? The other thing is that the land has recently been logged. The land is not pretty after that has happened but if you wanted pastures it would be a great start towards that but I love the trees in Vermont and I am sad over the logging. I think this would be a herculean project to bring it back to period correct but this would be a great home to remodel and have plenty of pasture land for the horses.

    I don’t know how much 1790 is left, if any, but there are some features worth saving… love the oven, even though the brick has been painted… a little sandblasting would get rid of that, I think. I LOVE the little lane. Go to the street view, and fly around. The trees will come back, and I would imagine the place is alive with deer, who do much better in field than forest, and i can just imagine watching the deer from the window…

    Never,never,never sandblast brick. The cast iron door mounted in the chimney could be a bake oven door. This house is basically pristine.
    If the furnishings were included this property would be a steal.

    Update from the new owner: The place has indeed been saved! It was actually built in 1810 and suffered very few damaging alterations up until its last occupant died in 1989. Because it sat vacant for so long it required an enormous amount of work to stabilize, but is filled with incredible links to people who’ve lived here since the early 19th century. This one managed to escape both major renovation and over restoration. I’ve posted the progress on Instagram, follow @death_and_the_maiden_1810 for a little glimpse of how far it’s come.
