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.

Are you looking for a secluded, off the grid home but one that's not too far from the necessities of life with enough land to have substantial gardens and outbuildings that can support all of your projects? Would an additional cabin or two on the property make it truly special? And to top it off, how about a 1000+' of frontage on a trout stream? Then this post and beam homestead might be the property you're looking for. The main house is truly something special, the timbers were repurposed and came from the Dummerston Covered Bridge after the major rebuilding of that structure in 1998 and they are something to see. The mostly open floor plan starts with a large entrance foyer, to the right an ample eat-in kitchen awaits that includes a large pantry and plenty of counter space, to the left, a stone fireplace greets you, straight ahead the living room and beyond that an office. All of the spaces are protected by the massive posts and beams from a by-gone era. The upstairs features an oversized master bedroom with a cathedral ceiling and 2 other large bedrooms. Place this on over 39 acres of mixed open and woodland that includes stone walls large garden areas and it's bordered to the west by East Putney Brook. There are also 2 cabins as well as a barn and other outbuildings. However, this property does need some upgrades and maintenance/repairs including heating, water and photovoltaic systems. Here's an exceptional VT property for the right buyer. Acreage is approximate

Great spot for off grid living. Located just over the Bradford line, this property is close to town and I91 but feels far away from it all. A driveway is roughed in to a clearing, currently being used as a log landing. Build in this private spot or venture further out into the wilderness. The adjacent 20 acres is forest owned by the Town, and the Wrights Mountain hiking trails are a short distance down the road. Seller is willing to stop logging operations per a buyer's request, and list price will adjust accordingly. Power is at the street but may be cost prohibitive to bring to a building site.
