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.

Do you love the privacy and self-sufficiency of Vermont but don't want to be too far in the sticks? Look no further - this recently built, spacious, financeable, off-grid cape is your answer! Just off the interstate exit and up and up a winding, but well maintained, private road you will find your sustainable Vermont dream home. While the saying "dream home" may be cliche, there is nothing ordinary about this house: standing in woods encircled meadow, it is powered by the sun (with a back up generator) and filled with custom features throughout from the extensive woodwork to marble bathroom sinks, dual master shower and Corian kitchen counters. The finished walkout basement has been used as an "unofficial" in-law suite and is wired and plumbed for a kitchenette. Radiant floors, extra rooms that can be used for guest sleeping quarters and a spacious deck makes this a great place to host and live in. But the best is outside the abode- beyond the garden space, luscious pasture and a babbling brook running through that runs through the yard, you can hike, birdwatch, hunt, forage for mushrooms, cross-country ski, four-wheel, or just enjoy the 40 plus acres of magic forest, complete with trails to guide you through these vast holdings. Bear, turkey, and deer are abundant! The home is 15 minutes to Montpellier and 45 to Burlington airport... Priced at bank appraised value! Call me now to arrange a showing.

  • Land
  • Acreage 710.1
  • Zoning Per town

This is a prime opportunity to purchase 710 acres of land abutting 10,826 acres of state owned land. It has had a recent timber harvest but most of the maple was left leaving approximately 20,000 potential taps. There is a great network of roads and trails through the property. The parcel is accessed by either of two ROW's, both of which have been substantially upgraded by current owners. The land offers wonderful wildlife habitat and frontage on 3 different brooks. The property was surveyed in 2017 and this survey laid out 7 parcels. There is a trail that leads you to the southern peak of the property and the views from the plateau are impressive in almost every direction. Sale excludes a winter 2020 timber harvest, which is being completed in accordance with the forest management plan. The goal of this harvest is to enhance the maple sugaring opportunity and promote the maple growth as well as enhance wildlife habitat. Property is enrolled in the VT Current Use Program, which supports long term sustainable forestry practices while enhancing long term holding affordability with very low property taxes. Whether you are looking for a long term timber investment, a sugaring operation, or a place to enjoy the great outdoors, this parcel is well worth a look.

  • 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.
