Historic Vermont Homes Under $40,000

Here are three historic Vermont homes under $40,000. All have been up for sale for several months or more and have been drastically reduced from their original listing price. From a connected farmhouse on a half acre and a Greek Revival on two acres to a Carpenter Gothic in a small hamlet, all of these homes have historical significance and need a new owner to bring them back to life again.

I featured this circa 1850 Greek Revival on 2 lush, green acres a few months back. Since then the price has been reduced from $49,900 to $29,000. A lovely garden area, barn, pasture and stone wall make this property picture perfect. A furnace was installed in 2006 as well as an electric panel with circuit breakers. The septic was replaced less than 10 years ago with a 1000 gallon tank. I’d hate to see this piece of history be demolished for a new home. At this price, there must be someone out there who can tackle it. There are plenty more photos when you click here.
