Property Description:

Beautiful, efficient, off grid, Post and Beam, passive solar, colonial style salt box home with mudroom/laundry room. Solar panels and wind turbine power this homestead with 8 batteries on a 24 volt system. Back up Yamaha generator that is almost never needed. 3 bedrooms w/ bonus room, 1 full bath w/ sawdust composting toilet. Geo flow unit baffles for gray water with leach field. Kitchen open to living room. Huge walk in pantry. Jotul woodstove for heat (~2 cord/yr) with back up radiant floor heat (run by tankless on demand propane system). House is tucked into the trees for protection from the wind with a fabulous view of the pasture. There's a ~26 ac woodlot behind house with ~1.5 miles of winding, private trails. Private well with a Bison Pump (has electric pump, but can also be hand pumped) and there is also an old hand dug well on the far side of the pasture from the house (could possibly be used for livestock) – (capped for safety).  The pasture is currently certified organic by MOFGA and has been grazed by sheep for the past 5 years. The woodlot includes a small, productive sugarbush (8-9 gal/yr with ~36 taps). Fenced yard by house for dog(s). Ready for homesteading or farming or both!
