      And I thought Vermont was all apple trees and sledding and little grandmas with apple pie! Darn, it’s a real place with good neighborhoods and sketchy ones. Still a great house!

    Agree it’s not a perfect neighborhood and Sweat St. is not a highly desirable name. The house next door has been kept up. Someone has to be the pioneer who starts gentrification. It’s not in terrible shape. For that price it’s worth considering especially since it was offered for 155k in Jan. 2015.

    I generally can’t tell much from Bing’s views, and Google maps doesn’t have a street view show up when you search. I did find a not too distant view of it from Main Street on Gmaps which allowed me to see more of what the town is like. Here is the link:
    https://www.google.com/maps/@44.9908661,-72.6751234,3a,60y,103.37h,76.93t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sWe76EnzyVKYXPXv0xA5Jaw!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
    -It is the plain green house up the street in this view from three years ago.

        No disrespect intended. With Bing, I only seem to be able to see the view in the link and a few feet to either side. I like to be able to rove the neighborhood like I can on the other site. I like to move back and forth from street view to satellite to map so I can see where things are in the town as well as zooming way out to see where a town is within a state, and even in relation to the whole multi-state area. I may just not know how to negotiate around Bing’s site properly and these features are available.

    Take the Google car tour, it’s a very neat area with so many old homes. I don’t see anything too sketchy about the neighborhood (especially compared to so many others we see here sadly), houses just crammed next to each other. Really beautiful scenery—type “Richford VT” in Google Maps and look at the neat views! I saw a Canadian flag flying next to the American flag at a gas station so checked it out—a border town, kind of neat as well. This looks like my kind of town…but I ain’t moving north lol.

    I’d guess the house was built on a larger lot owned by brothers Ira and Warren Sweat, late 19th C. builders from Quebec who lived in town about 50 years.
    Possibly the original driveway was made into a street when the property was subdivided 100+ years ago. The view would be a little better without the moving van. Nothing sketchy that I can see and the price is right.

    neighborhood isn’t bad – this is still Vermont and even the cities aren’t that big. I will bet Richford probably isn’t more than 3 or 4 million people (maybe just 3 or 4 people ) and in the upper tier states -ME, NH and VT, drive 5 minutes in any direction and you’re in the country.
    besides for less than a Dodge pickup, you get a whole house with some real style, a dynamite kitchen and all the hard work of sanding and refinishing floors already done for you.

    I’m actually interviewing for a job in this area, and ran across this house in my “pre-employment” search (I always look at real estate in the vicinity of where I’m interviewing). It’s a lot of house that needs a lot of work. But the one I own now was like that too. Why is it we *say* we don’t want another “project house,” but yet…smh.

    I LOVE this house. Very easy to envision it made beautiful again. So much potential

    I, too, like this house just too crowded in, It could be fixed beautifully or just a clean up and a few cans of paint. If you only could move these.

    Posted last year. The agent added a better exterior photo and a few more interior, thought it was worth another look so moved to the front page. Comments above may be older.

    Very nice house, looks like she was a beautiful painted lady at one time. There’s a lot to work with here and at that price, you could afford to have a lot of the work done by professionals. You could pick & choose which jobs you want to tackle yourself.

    Agreed that the location appears to be less than perfect. However, lots with a view might be available and perhaps someone could move the house on a new lot with views and still come in for around the price of a new starter home or less. As mentioned in the comments above, there is a lot to work with here.

  13. I had no idea that Bing doesn’t blur faces. Wow. The house is super cute though. Quick question- is anyone else obsessed with The Handmaid’s Tale because of the houses? I just love a living room without a huge television!

      I had to stop watching that show. I’ve rarely gotten depressed over a TV show but holy hell, how depressing and bleak (which is the point but still.) BUT I loved the architecture! Don’t know which are sets or real but the background is really well done.

        Horrible 80's-style. Toronto,

        I love the show but that aside… a good deal of it is shot in Cambridge Ontario where there is a treasure trove of beautiful houses. There is some shooting in Toronto (the big ballroom scene was shot at Casa Loma).
