The Essence of Vermont Country Living
Wolcott, VT, USA US $1,999,000
Retreat into the Green Mountains with your own 500± acre Vermont country homestead. Thousands of maple trees turn the mountainside into a vibrant shade of red in the fall, and flow with sap in the spring. Terrain includes ledges, terraces, valleys, brooks, waterfalls and views of Elmore Mtn., Worcester Range and Mt. Mansfield. The current owners have operated 6,000 taps and there is potential for approximately 29,000 taps!
Enjoy the peace and quiet of the woods from the comfortable four bedroom, three bathroom, 2,496± square foot log cabin. Or get out and hike the many trails and old logging roads that exist throughout the property. Fully self-sufficient, the homestead is completely off-the-grid as it is powered by solar and has a boiler that uses bio-fuel to run the heat...along with a Hearthstone woodstove and two wood-burning Rumford fireplaces.
The power supply, batteries and generator sit in a custom-built, weather sealed outbuilding just beyond the home that is designed and optimized for safe storage and prolonged use of the utilities. Experience the essence of Vermont country living, and if you want to, you can live like it's 1850 but with all of the modern conveniences!
