Vermont is known for its natural beauty, with wide-open landscapes that include the Green Mountains, lakes, and forests. There are also plenty of populated areas within our small cities and ski resorts. If you're looking for space to roam, peaceful surroundings, and land to call home, we can help! Purchasing a property in the countryside is perfect in a state with a strong focus on sustainable living and outdoor recreation with access to hiking, skiing, and other outdoor activities right outside your door. Additionally, even Vermont's quietest towns have a strong sense of community and a slower pace of life, which can be appealing to those seeking a more relaxed lifestyle.
There are several reasons why you might consider buying a country home or land in Vermont. Here are some of the top benefits:
- Natural beauty: Vermont is known for its stunning natural beauty, with rolling hills, dense forests, and charming small towns. If you're looking for a peaceful retreat where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and enjoy the beauty of nature, a country home in Vermont could be a great choice.
- Outdoor activities: Vermont is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, with ample opportunities for hiking, skiing, snowboarding, fishing, hunting, and more. With your own land, you can enjoy these activities right from your doorstep, without having to travel far.
- Privacy: If you're looking for privacy and seclusion, you've come to the right place. You'll have plenty of space to yourself, with no neighbors to worry about.
- Self-sufficiency: With your own land, you can grow your own vegetables, raise livestock, and even generate your own energy through solar or wind power. This can help you live a more self-sufficient lifestyle and reduce your reliance on outside sources. Live the Vermont way!
- Investment potential: Real estate in Vermont has historically appreciated in value over time, and a country home with land can be a smart investment. Even if you don't plan to live in the home full-time, you could rent it out as a vacation property or use it as a second home.
Overall, a country home in Vermont with land can offer a peaceful retreat, a wealth of outdoor activities, and the potential for investment and self-sufficiency. Let's explore our current listings below!
