- Acreage 9
- Zoning Barnard Village
The Vermont hill town of Barnard, Vermont was chartered on July 17, 1761, by a New Hampshire Grant and named for Sir Francis Bernard, 1st Baronet, and Governor of the Province of Massachusetts Bay. Nestled in the foothills of the Delectable Mountains, the elevation at the village center is one of the highest in Windsor County - listed at 1,181 feet above sea level. Just off of Route 12, immediately adjacent to the Barnard Inn to the south and just a few hundred yards from 84-acre Silver Lake, the two parcels that comprise the 29 acres of land offered here present an opportunity to become part of one of the most interesting villages in Vermont. Preliminary soils data testing indicates several appropriate homesites and the property's Barnard Village 1 acre and commercial zoning may allow for more creative or expansive uses. A roughly 70/30 mixture of forested and open land make for a variety of experiences and two streams meander through the larger parcel of 19 acres, connecting on the roughly 9 acre parcel to the north. The shores of Silver Lake as well as the nearby Post Office and the cooperatively-owned and operated Barnard General Store provide for a town center in a community that is distinctly focused on coming together through a love of the Vermont lifestyle and a strong connection to the outdoors. Nearby Kiss the Cow Farm and Feast and Field Market and Farm are true leaders in the farm to table movement. The Village of Woodstock is a ten-mile drive.
