  • 4 Bed

Fabulous 45 acres of old farm land with superb mountain and valley views with several possible building sites. Half of the land is open pasture and half is pine woodland. Three sides of the property are bounded by town roads so there is easy access to all of the land. The old house has not been lived in for 10+ years and may be a tear down. There is a 20x30 seasonal camp up in the woods at the southern edge of the property that has also not been used for a decade and will require a new driveway for access. There will be a deed restriction prohibiting the placement of single wide manufactured homes on the property.

    This is a much earlier house.
    It was probably built in the 18th century.
    Note the exposed & cased corner posts, plates & girts.
    Exposed plates & girts disappeared by 1800.
    I see no evidence of leaking roofs.
    The pealing paint is what happens in houses that have been heated for years.
    All that is needed is some cleanup.
    It seems to have a slate roof, which will last a very long time if the fasteners don’t rust out.

      I’m sure you’re right that the house is much earlier than 1854. Tinmouth was settled just before the Revolution, and population peaked around 1820. The village a mile north is listed on the NRHP – pure Vermont!

      The owner later on was Leonard Campbell (1805-1877), a son of pioneering local physician Dr. Ebenezar Campbell. It would be interesting to study the construction, and dig into the history of this one!

    Too bad so many people see peeling paint and wallpaper and think “teardown”. I’d love to get my hands on a great little place like this – with a cool old stove, to boot…

    Oh wow! If only I could win the lottery! I so agree with Barbara V in that people see peeling paint and wallpaper and want to teardown the whole structure. Sort of like throwing out the baby with the bath water.
    LOVE that cool old stove also and I think that with some cleanup, paper removal and new paint, this house could shine like a star. Hope it will!
