The farmhouse is only 6.5 miles from Brandon’s village center where you can enjoy its many shops, restaurants and galleries, 19 miles from Middlebury, 8 miles from Middlebury College’s Breadloaf Campus, and one and half miles from Blueberry Hill Inn. The property is located within the Moosalamoo National Recreation Area – offering endless walking, hiking and mountain biking trails. Swim or kayak at nearby Silver Lake or Sugar Hill Reservoir and fish in the local trout streams or small lakes. Visit Branbury State Park on Lake Dunmore for excellent beach, swimming and boating. This is the location of several triathalons each summer.
Great Restaurants in Brandon (Cafe Provence) and in Middlebury (Storm Cafe and American Flatbread)
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We use the farmhouse on weekends, it is only a short distance away from our home in Brandon. Our business is Visual Learning Systems, where we produce educational science videos and teacher's guides, etextbooks and online video subscriptions for K-12 classrooms and teachers.
Why the Owner Chose Goshen, VT, USA:
We purchased this hilltop farm as a weekend getaway, and for the beautiful pastures where our sheep graze during the spring, summer and fall. There are also many wild apple trees - and every fall we make cider from these delicious, tart apples. In the spring, we tap the maple trees and make enough syrup for our family and friends.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The property is one of the few remaining farms with open fields in Goshen. The land is situated next to the Green Mountain National Forest which provides endless possibilities of outdoor recreation, including biking, xc skiing, hiking, swimming, boating, birding and fishing. Great location for those attending Bread Loaf School of English.
