Property Description

Called by noted Vermont historian, Philip White, "easily the most beautiful in Norwich", this landmark property is offered for sale for the first time in more than 40 years. Sited magnificently in its own private oasis -- yet right downtown -- this property enjoys almost 4.5 acres and has been known as the "Huntley Farm". Built by Elisha Partridge in 1777, it sits at the corner of the the Huntley Meadow (now playing fields) where the cattle grazed. Significant structural and systems work have been completed in the last few years and the house is now ready for the next generation's attention. A truly incredible barn accompanies the house and is one of the finest examples of antique agricultural buildings in the area. It houses an apartment and art studio as well as a tremendous open volume of space for basketball, weddings, stage plays or just about anything one could want.
