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.

  • Land
  • Acreage 130
  • Zoning res

This 130.9 Acre Parcel is located in a prime location in Charlotte Vermont with elevated 180 degree views to the Green Mountains. With clearing there will be strategic views west to Adirondacks. This rare piece of land has good soils for septic capability. Meadows, woodlands, streams and a beautiful pine forest. Build your dream home and have land to create a sustainable lifestyle or simply enjoy. The build sites are high on the ridge while the incredible low areas are stunning as quoted by a Vermont Naturalist that has been on site: "The multiple sunny meadows on the south and north side are beautiful. The wetlands that surround the streams running through the center of the property are gorgeous with a mix of sedge meadows and shallow marshes. The hemlock dominated forest on the east side of the stream is majestic dotted with pools of water- these tracks of land used more by wildlife then people are the exception to the norm in Charlotte. The forested streams and intact wetlands also protect water quality and support the health of the Laplatte River which runs nearby" - end quote from the naturalist. Currently the owners have the Laplatte Organic Beef Cattle grazing a portion of the land for Vermont Current Use Tax Benefits. The land may be subdivided into three lots only per the family wishes. A once in a lifetime property and 20 minutes to downtown Burlington Vermont. With a subdivided lot - this will facilitate infra structure expenses.
