More Photos Upon Request. This late 1800s farmhouse has been completely renovated, from foundation to roof. The charm and beauty of the original footprint was maintained and expanded on, but the modern updates are really what make this home stand out. With an energy retrofit and the addition of solar panels, you can operate this home at $0! for heat, electricity, hot water, air conditioning, and electric for an electric car. Coupled with energy conscious appliances, good insulation, new windows all around... this home is not only affordable to run but very comfortable year round. This home has excellent spaces that make it functional, beautiful, and very practical, making it feel and function larger than it is, without the costly side effects of a house too big. This includes an open concept kitchen, covered front porch, back deck and stone patio, mud room, dining room, downstairs office or 4th bedroom, large living room, three upstairs bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, well insulated and always dry basement, a 1 and half car garage with easily accessed full 2nd story barn storage, additional covered carport, attached wood storage and garden shed, a non daunting driveway (easy shoveling or minimal plowing), and a big garden with beautiful and organically managed soil for optimal vegetable and flower growing, fruit trees (pear, plum, apple) and bushes (blueberries, gooseberries, raspberries, currants, elderberries, honeyberries, hazelnuts, and more), and even room for raising chickens. The backyard borders town owned property which includes baseball and volleyball fields, horseshoe pits, and a newly built (2018) playground. The recreation fields and surrounding walking paths have limited foot traffic, are great for cross country skiing and extend from the backyard seamlessly. A stones throw from the Falls General Store (FGS), one of the best General Stores in Vermont, well equipped with an awesome café, groceries, and a yoga studio. Walkable to four (of 6 in Northfield) covered bridges, which provide sweet options for swimming holes. Walk to the Northfield Falls post office, or catch the daily Northfield Commuter Bus to Montpelier right from FGSs front step. Montpelier is just a 10 minute drive up Route 12N. If you need a quick grocery store, Tops is just a one minute drive toward Northfield downtown, on 12S. Newly founded Carrier Coffee Roasters (Voted best coffeeshop in Vermont in 2019!), Cornerstone Burger CO., and Good Measure Brewery are adding to the vibrancy of Northfield and make being a local very easy. In our opinion, it's one of the best locations in Central Vermont. All the benefits of rural living with the convenience of multiple town centers, close to ski mountains, and surprisingly many services within walking distance.
