Property Description for 610 Akley, Guilford, VT 05301

The Briggs Farm circa 1785, when Vermont was Republic of Vermont (1777-1791), not yet the 14th state & Guilford, the most populated towns makes one marvel at the handiwork of early Vermont settlers. It's believed that a water-powered sawmill was first built on the property & then the 2.5 story, center hall colonial was constructed on the south-facing plateau using beams & lumber cut from the land & Guilford slate. The site offers views of the pastures, the stream, wetlands & the managed woodlands. The land, 284 acres (245 in Guilford & 39.45 in Brattleboro) offer great protection & control. The owners, who bought the house in 1952 with 145 acres added multiple additional parcels, including the 3 acre site of the original sawmill. Significant work was believed to have been done on the house in the 1860s. Significant restoration & upgrades to the house, including major energy-efficiency improvements in 2012, have been ongoing. The home's simplicity and antique features have been preserved. Original, wide pine & oak, random width floors, a rebuilt central fireplace with surrounding raised panels, boxed beams, wainscotting, solid 4 panel doors with antique hardware & built-in bookcases all contribute the appeal. The 30'x25',post & beam barn has a concrete floor & sliding door for vehicles on the bottom level & storage on the two above. Property enrolled in Current Use. Buyer must agree to re-enroll or bear any penalty. Brokers-Please disclose additional info-Non-public remarks!
