Nestled in the hollow of Tampico along a peaceful country road, this 1850’s former farm including house and barn is an oasis of quiet and undisturbed nature. Songbirds abound around the sprawling and well-established English gardens which contain extensive perennial flowers, shrubs, flowering trees, and a frog pond. Walk out your kitchen door and pick fiddleheads, ramps, asparagus, blueberries, raspberries and more for your meals. The property includes 9.4 acres of land in an unspoiled setting, including hill, wetland, and woods. The barn is a classic Vermont treasure in good condition. The house is built on a sturdy stone foundation. Inside, the house is roomy and airy with original wide plank pine flooring. A covered front porch with a stone wall is the perfect setting to watch fireflies and listen to peepers in the evenings. The back garden knoll with its big sky is perfect for stargazing. The downstairs boasts an open kitchen/dining area with room enough for an extra-large farm table. French doors lead to a stone terrace and gardens beyond, while a sweet arched doorway leads to a small sitting area under the crabapple trees. The kitchen opens to the main living room and then to a suite of two connected bedrooms. A roomy bathroom and pantry complete the circular layout of the main floor. The 2nd floor is accessible by two stairways, one from the kitchen and one from the living room. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms plus a large common area and a full bathroom.
