WOW! VIEWS OF GORGEOUS LAKE CHAMPLAIN
THE GREEN MOUNTAINS OF VERMONT
Imagine sitting on your front porch and looking at the panoramic water views of Lake Champlain with a back drop of the Green Mountains of Vermont. This historical home is huge with 7,520 s/f of space and eight bedrooms. 1.5 acres with groomed landscaping. Many of the original features remain (pocket doors, rosette trim, mahogany fireplace, maple banister, fir flooring, and more) with this colonial beauty. Some TLC is needed, and then start the decorating changes. Add some more bathrooms and open up your own B&B. This home watches over the scenic ferry, around the corner from the golf course and public beach. B&B guests will be treated to some good R&R; or treat yourself with this historical home yourself.
Original builder is Peter Comstock (entrepreneur who ran the "Red Bird Line" stage coaches, ran barges on the lake, had the first bank in Whitehall, and a town was named for him "Comstock, NY") in 1890. There is an original 2 story carriage house in the rear, greenhouse house foundation w/boiler cabin, with perennial beds. The home is heated w/hot air heat, plus woodstove, 8" insulation mixed, cable is available, and some nice stone work in the front.
Priced at $275,000 with carriage barn.
