About Vermont

img

Vermont is the second smallest state in terms of population (it has 609,000 residents) and the sixth smallest in geographic area. Lake Champlain, the nation's sixth-largest freshwater body lies at the northwest border with New York State and Canada. The state is split east-west by the Green Mountains, which are popular for recreational activities. The eastern border with New Hampshire is defined by the Connecticut River. Vermont is the only landlocked state in New England which leads to its often being short-changed in guides to the region.

The state is extremely rural, its valleys littered with farms. Its largest city is Burlington, pop. 38,889. Among the state's major exports are cheese, maple syrup, marble, slate, and granite.

Tourism is also a very large industry in Vermont, as skiers travel from Boston, New York, Canada, and elsewhere to ski resorts up and down the Green Mountain spine during the winter. In summer, the many bed and breakfasts fill up with couples and families wanting to visit the state's small towns and wild areas. Vermont's autumn foliage is known for being the most spectacular in the country, and possibly the world. It occurs quite early -- usually mid-September to mid-October.

Governor's Farm

Springfield, Windsor County, Vermont


This is a special, magical, beautiful property, "Governor's Farm", with an antique Cape & large dairy barn, 2 parcels of land totaling 46.97 ac., of meadows, trees, gardens, forest, flowers, and 970'+/- accessible frontage on the Connecticut River, just 30-35 min. from the Upper Valley centers of Hanover-Dartmouth College, Lebanon-DartmouthHitchcockMedicalCenter, White River Jct.. The property consists of 2 parcels in one deed, on both sides of Rte. 5/Connecticut River Rd.--a 12.87 ac. parcel, which includes the house & barn, on the river side, and the second parcel, on the west side, a parcel of raw land, primarily forested, containing 34.1 ac. The property was once an operating dairy farm. It is spectacular, with extensive, usable, accessible frontage on the River, pastures, orchards, mature hardwoods, a Christmas tree grove, a stream entering the river, hiking trails, etc. The house has potential to be a beautiful antique Cape restoration, w/many original features intact. There is a 19x45 extension, probably once a shed or barn, partially finished, and could easily be incorporated into the year-round living space. The 36x84 dairy barn, built possibly in the '50's, provides additional potential. This would be a great property for grazing animals, a vacation home, small farm, B&B (w/4 bedrooms each having a dedicated bathroom), recreational usage, or any combination of uses. It is felt that there is subdivision potential, as well, on the riverfront parcel, a 5 ac. minimum district.
