Located between Lake Champlain and the Canadian border in the northwest corner of Vermont, Franklin County is a region steeped in agricultural heritage, many historic traditions and four seasons of iconic natural beauty. Whether you are an outdoor enthusiast, competitive athlete, seasoned shopper or new resident, Franklin County has something for you!
An exceptional homestead opportunity with a valuable timber resource. Much of the property is well-suited as a sugarbush. The forest is adjacent to the spine of the Green Mountains with several peaks visible from the property's meadows and the Cold Hollow Range unfolding to the west. An old homestead, which is likely most suitable as a camp, is at the end of a road and well away from other homes creating a serene retreat with extensive solitude. Pacific Brook defines much of the land's northern boundary. The clear-running, boulder-strewn brook flows swiftly downhill, creating deep pools, cascading falls and two narrow gorges where the water barrels through narrow rock formations. Topography is variable with most of the land containing gentle slopes. The forest has a standing timber value of $594,000. Species composition is dominated by hardwoods, with softwoods holding the balance. Aside from recent overstory removal cuts, forest density is generally represented by fully-stocked stands. The property offers a sugarbush opportunity on some of its acreage. The 2017 timber inventory data indicate a property-wide potential tap count of 27,475. The current ownership constructed a 12' x 26' sap house in 2012. The structure has a cement floor with separate sap collection and boiling areas. The sugarbush operation had sap lines laid out covering roughly ±2,000 taps.
Location location, 8 miles to Jay Peak. The possibilities abound with this charming home on a level lot nestled alongside the Trout River.

Photographed in the September/October 2017 Issue of Yankee Magazine in an article that features Montgomery, this home is centrally located in this quintessential Covered Bridge community. Built in 1999, this ranch home offers 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, an over-sized 2 car garage with high ceilings for extra storage and an outbuilding that can be used for storage or, with a little work, a rental or home business. The outbuilding needs electricity, plumbing and heat. Beautiful view of pasture land and river. An open floor plan for easy living and large windows that invite natural light throughout this home. If you desire country living with convenient access to shopping and services, this is a must-see home.

This one owner home was newly constructed on 1987 and carefully maintained ever since. Low maintenance exterior of standing seam metal roofing and "wooden shake" vinyl siding. The interior of this home is thoughtfully designed and efficient too! But the real hook here is the grounds, gardens and magical lake shore access. The owners have created a private beach area on the lake shore that is a pleasure to spend time on and easy to get to. No "cliff access" problems here. Follow the stairs off the driveway down to a lower landing area surrounded by evergreen shrubs accented by flowering plants, then follow the native pebble path to a leveled patio area nestled beneath the shoreline trees. You have to see it to love it so make an appointment today!
