Vermont Off-The-Grid Properties

Off the grid properties in Vermont can be classified into two catagories, those that have no access to the power grid and those that have access to the power grid but choose to produce their own energy. Many homeowners have bought a desirable parcel of land and after reviewing building site locations, have chosen to built in a spot that would be very expensive to bring in power. With all the technology today, providing one's own power can be quite cost effective. I have seen many residences that are connected to the power grid but the owners have installed alternative power sources to free themselves from the cost and dependence of the power grid. Either way, being energy independent is a very gratifying position that ultimately can be of benefit to us all.

Located off of a quintessential Vermont dirt road in Townshend with old farms and country cottages dotting the drive-in and flanked by fields, forests, and old stone walls- It is a picturesque setting! The land itself consists of multiple types of terrain and is 7.81 surveyed and well-marked acres. There is level access from the road and multiple potential driveway access locations. Pick a house site near the road for easy access or set back on the lot for complete privacy and potential Mount Snow views. Currently, seasonal views and some selective cutting could enhance the ridgeline and mountain views to the east. There are multiple springs on the property and the old "spring house" location is easy to find and still active. A great source of water for camping, gardening, or off-grid living is already in place! If you have bigger plans, the land has been perk tested and indicates a 3 bedroom waste water system is possible and the lot has just been fully surveyed. Located in the town of Townshend, Vermont this is a great location for commuters to Brattleboro or Springfield or needing access to Interstate 91 without being in the hustle of a larger town. Conveniences like groceries, farmers markets, healthcare, and restaurants can be found only 10-15 minutes in either direction.
