Dreaming of an affordable country cottage in rural Vermont? House Crazy Sarah has found you this charming little 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom farmstead located just outside of the quaint town of Grafton, Vermont.
That is the same town where the real-life Funny Farm house is located!
This 1850 home was just listed for sale at $239,000.
The house and an accompanying mini red barn is located on .25 acres right across the road from the Saxtons River.
Here is a Google street view capture of the property from 2012:
It’s true country living on Route 121!
There were more exterior photos in the listing but they were taken on a grey day and House Crazy Sarah vastly preferred the sunny fall photos with the bluebird sky. She’s said it before, and she’ll say it again, REALTORS PLEASE ONLY SUNSHINE PICS! Gloomy day pics are so depressing and such a turn-off when you are scrolling through hundreds of listings.
As a potential buyer, can you see yourself on the open front porch on a warm, sunny fall day?
Of course you can!
Have a look inside… (unfortunately, all the interior photos were taken on a dreary day).
The interior is subdued and traditional, and feels…. quiet. This is not a bad thing.
The home has a total of 1,410 finished square feet. It has many original features like the six over six paned windows.
The kitchen has been remodeled but in that same low-key, subdued style.
The highlight of the kitchen are those warm, wide-plank floors – they do light up the room!
Shaker-style cabinets give the space a feeling of timelessness.
The dining room is serene and traditional.
There is something about this home that is very pure…. or perhaps Puritan?
The one full bathroom (there’s a half bath upstairs) still has the old tub and 2-faucet sink:
The upper floor contains the two bedrooms.
More of those fascinating wide-plank floors!
The house is historically quaint but the best part of this Vermont spread is the property with its quintessential red barn.
A little slice of heaven for only $239,000.
