      Lovely 4 Bedroom Barre City Cape for Sale--53 Camp Street

      • By
      • Posted

      The tasteful and substantial four bedroom home at 53 Camp Street in Barre is something that we just don't see everyday this market.

      Four big bedrooms, including three on the second floor, and one on the first floor. Great cape design (with modern design touches such as large rooms, deep dormers, and spacious closets). It was built in 1987, so we have newer electric and other systems, but that classic cape design that people love.

      Big, eat-in kitchen with lots of cabinets and counter space. There's even an island to hang around at and enjoy friendly conversations, or a quick snack. Updated appliances too! For more elegant dinners, just move over to the formal dining room, complete with hardwood floors and bright windows.

      There's a living room, plus a very comfortable family room that opens right up to the big and private back yard. I have a feeling you'll be spending a lot of time either in this family room or outside in the yard! 

      That yard is the crowning glory of 53 Camp Street. Originally designed as four city lots, the city assessor has told the owner that two lots could be built upon. So, if you wanted to change the configuration, you could. Or, and hear me out, you could keep the .72 acre lot all to yourself. Completely ringed with trees and shrubs, it's private, flat, and grassy. It's a park just for you!

      Updates include a new architectural shingled roof and a new boiler. Yes, the hard things (and the expensive things) have been replaced and updated. You get to make your cosmetic choices to make this place your own!

       

      645 North Main in Northfield, VT. Beautiful 4 Bedroom Home for Sale

      • By
      • Posted

      645 North Main in Northfield is a great combination of old and new, and really, one of the best and most pleasantly surprising backyards in town.

      The classic New England construction has three bedrooms on the second floor, along with a full bathroom. The first floor has warm hardwood floors, a formal dining room, bright living room, and the fourth bedroom. There's also a 3/4 bathroom on the first floor.

      Lots of fun spaces in this house, and lots of flexibility. From the back of the house, as you pass through the mudroom, there's an office / flex room. Could be used as a guest suite, a home office, play room, and more. Upstairs, there's another office space. It's currently being used as Jeff's closet!

      Nice-sized, eat-in kitchen, separated between the hang out area and the work area. The work area is tastefully tucked into what was the butler's pantry (butler not included) and includes a new microwave and a new dishwasher.

      You'd never expect to see the backyard that's here, though. Professionally landscaped with stone walkways, a patio, ornamental trees, a fire pit, and fencing. Many friends and families will personally attest to the fun and festivities of a "Le Jardin" party.

      Need storage? How about a big barn. Yes. A barn. In town. Two floors of storage / man cave / she shed (I believe you can figure what a She Shed is). Add a little finishing touches and make this into a great studio or artist space. Be creative!

      645 North Main in Northfield is convenient to Norwich University, the Northfield Common, and a quick drive to Montpelier or 89.

      **MOTIVATED SELLER**32+ acres of private land, yet minutes to town. Fertile, well drained soil (plate work completed) make this property excellent for any type of farming. Roughly 10 open acres (in hay as well as mature nursery stock) and a hobbyist's sugar bush with sugar shack. The house is a beautifully built contemporary farmhouse with high ceilings, tons of windows, and a large front porch.  Built in 1999, it doesn’t leave much to be desired.  There is a loft area (with skylights!) and a third floor that could be completed to create a 4th bedroom or whatever else your heart desires.  The property is complete with a large equipment barn, greenhouse, and chicken coop. Equipment may be available for separate purchase. Perfect property for small agriculture, horses, livestock, pets, and more. Great opportunity to have a peaceful, private, newer home, with great fields, and close to town.

      This is good staging. People smile when they walk into a house like this.



      IMG_0905.JPG

      This is bad staging. It just is.

      This Central Vermont market is giving all signs of a strong sellers’ market. With an inventory ranging from 3.6 months in Montpelier to 10.9 months in Barre City we see that homes in some markets tend to move faster than in others.

       

      Takeaway:

      Buyers--be ready to move fast and make strong offers.

      Sellers--Price right, and solve any problems beforehand. Everyone will be happy.

      Lindsay has years of experience in financial services and management in Florida and Vermont, and is already getting great reviews from her buyer clients.

       

      “Thanks for working hard for us. I’ve bought two houses in the past, sold one, and I haven’t had a Realtor work this hard before.   I appreciate it.”

       

      We do too! Lindsay joins Brian Steinmetz, Marina Carleton, and Ray Mikus, along with Administrative Assistant Maria Lamberti.

      Well, Vermont had to be in at least one category with Montana and Wyoming…(Source: National Association of Realtors)

       

      Congratulations to all our buyers who took advantage of our May and June promotion. Several savvy buyers got $500 from Green Light Real Estate to pay for some of their closing costs.

       

      And, a shout out to Wanda at Academy Mortgage, for matching our promotion with an additional $500 for buyers working with Academy.

      The Crystal Ball: We get a lot of calls from people who don’t want to sell their homes.

       

      Yet. It’s really smart to think ahead. If you're thinking that next year is the year, talk with a Realtor, make a plan, get some numbers and put yourself in a great position to sell for the best price NEXT year.

       

      We can help with inspection items, appraisal issues, improvements, and staging. Give yourself all the advantages!

      Call, text, email, or just stop into our office to find out how much your house is worth.

       

      Or to have a FREE consultation and make a strategy for finding, and BUYING your new home.

       

      Get a plan. Get a house. Pretty simple.

      Green Light Real Estate is locally owned. We don’t have headquarters in Texas, New Jersey, or Connecticut. Um, actually, we don’t have headquarters. But you can stop into our office on State Street.
