Vermont Sustainable Properties

In it's simplest form, a sustainable Vermont property is one that can provide for the needs of it's owner on a continuing basis. Generally, this would pertain to renewable products such as firewood and the ability to raise animals and produce. The size of a self sustaining property can be surprisingly small. A 3-5 acre mixed northern hardwood woodlot can easily provide enough firewood for a well constructed residence of moderate size. A couple of acres of open productive land can be more than enough to grow a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. From there it depends on the specific interests of an owner. 

Vermont is very fortunate to have the basic makings of being very sustainable. We have an excellent amount of quality water, fertile soils and a sufficient growing season. Droughts are very rare, and extreme weather events are not common. There are many properties that have had the benefit of recent development and improvements and there are many land parcels awaiting the creative thoughts of a new owner to achieve self sustainability.

  • Commercial
  • Year Built 1890
  • Acreage 69.08

Shovel ready Glamping/Event Project with in-hand permit for 40+ 4 season glamping units. The project aspires to create a sustainable, immersive, and enlightening retreat experience by harnessing the inherent natural beauty and recreational opportunities available on the Property and in the surrounding region. Our primary goal is to offer guests a distinctive opportunity to connect with both nature and the local community. In addition to this primary objective, the Project will also host a diverse range of events, including weddings, corporate retreats, cultural gatherings, and business conferences. Boorn Brook Farm has a storied history, with its origins dating back to the 1790s Farmhouse and the iconic 1820s Barn. Over time, it has evolved into a secluded country estate. Nestled adjacent to the Green Mountain National Forest, the estate was acquired in 1999 from the Shelburne Museum as part of the estate of Marion Gould Pleissner. She had been the proud owner for over five decades and was the spouse of the renowned outdoor hunting sports artist, Ogden Pleissner. Notably, Pleissner's studio once occupied the Barn, and its legacy has been preserved at the Shelburne Museum in Burlington, VT. Today, the estate stands as a multi-generational private sanctuary and an exclusive estate, bounded by Bourn Brook to the north, and surrounded by the lush expanse of the Green Mountain National Forests and the tranquil Lye Brook Wilderness to the east, south, and west.
