About this property

OPPORTUNITY TO RESTORE a grand historic home on 29 lush Vermont acres (subject to subdivision.) One of the oldest homes in Strafford, the property includes two barns, a small lovely pond, and a workshop building that would make a marvelous studio or might possibly be converted to a guest house. Once the home of renowned astronomer Seth Carlo Chandler, Jr. known for his research on what became known as the "Chandler Wobble." The moon crater "Chandler" is named after him. This unique home was built in 1800 (back part of house in 1880). The home is livable now but work done to renovate/restore this historic home would result in a marvelous GEM! Open areas offer agricultural and other possibilities including horses, sheep, etc. Old pictures show that wooded area behind house offers the possibility, with clearing, of other open areas. Exceptional opportunity at this reduced price. Subdivision approval by town of Strafford on 21 September.
