Additional Information

Situated on the historic Hinman Settler Road is where you will find this 1811 Farmhouse and barn on 89 +/- acres of open and wooded land. The Hinman Settler Road was once the main route from Boston to Montreal yet it is still a gravel road with wonderful scenery. This homestead is one example of the history of the road. It is about a mile from the Old Stone House Museum and the historic district of Brownington. The house has had some updates such as a roof, some wiring, windows, etc. over the last few decades and it is livable but is in need of some work. The barn is tired but has potential to be salvaged or re-purposed. The majority of the value in this property comes from the land itself. The house site offers gorgeous westerly views of Jay Peak and mountains to the north and south. There is another beautiful building site to the South where you can see from Lowell mountain to Jay peak an up to Lake Memphremagog and the Canadian mountains beyond. The hay and pasture land would support a small farm and there is also a lot of woods that convey with the property which offer great wildlife habitat and allow you to control much of your future view. There is a 20' right of way across the western boundary along the cemetery. The listers card shows 2 bedrooms yet historically there have been 4 rooms used as bedrooms. Typical of the old farmhouses you have to go through one bedroom to get to another.
