We just had an appraisal done and this property is priced $87,000 under that! What a great value and opportunity to have a family compound and start making Vermont memories right here. The original home has 3 bed- rooms and 4 bathrooms, classic living room, library and large country kitchen/dining room with a wood burning stove and an office. The owners quarters in the North end of the home offer living/ dining space downstairs with a 3/4 bath and a cozy gas stove. Upstairs is a cozy den with a vaulted ceiling and 3 bedrooms with a full and half bath. Just outside is a covered country porch guest cottage, huge perfect gambrel roof barn and swimming pool looking out on conserved land, Shelburne Pond and surrounded by perennial gardens. John Elliot was born in Paisley, Scotland in 1800, set sail for America in 1829 to harvest hardwoods in the Vermont woods for charcoal. John built this stately Greek Revival home in 1865 where four generations of his family lived and worked the land. Now the home of Elliot House Bed & Breakfast welcoming people from all over the world to this quaint setting abutting 400 acres of Nature Conservancy land and Shelburne Pond.
