290 Vt Rte 112, Whitingham, VT 05342
4+ bed/4 bath Jacksonville Village Farmhouse on 9 acres! Built in 1840 this home has history and character. For almost 20 years until the late 90's the attached barn was home to The Jacksonville Tavern the first (and only!) bar in town. Many of the original fixtures, including the bar are still in place. The upstairs of the Tavern, originally restaurant seating is a great place to hold a function or could make the ultimate rec room above the bar. The home is in the typical style of the period, a center staircase from the front entry, living room to the right and formal dining room with fireplace to the left. There is a full bath with claw foot tub and main floor bedroom. Upstairs there are 3 additional bedrooms, bath, tons of storage and the center hall is plenty large enough to be an office or den. High speed internet in place here. Located on scenic Rt 112 only 20 minutes north of Greenfield MA the drive from the south takes you through large farms and apple orchards and past road side stands with fresh farm produce. 15-20 minutes north are the shops and restaurants of Wilmington, lakes and Mount Snow skiing. Jacksonville Village is a quint and picturesque has it's own general store, wine and cheese shop, artists studios and Honora Winery. The land has open field, stone walls, wooded areas and is bordered on one side by a year round brook. The house is ready for some TLC but the floor plan, acreage, Tavern, fireplaces and wood floors are certainly worth the sweat equity.
