58 Grafton Road
If you yearn to live in a Vermont Village, this idyllic lot across from a picturesque Town Common may look like a scene from a film. It actually was: Chevy Chase's film "Funny Farm". The gracious 1802 colonial, expanded in 1900 is no longer there but the lot has been beautifully maintained. Marble foundation stones outline the original house site of the 5 bedroom 1 1/2 bath home. The lovely landscaping dotted with perennial gardens, shade trees interspersed across a lawn, whimsical arched gate bordered by an old stone wall seem suspended in time, awaiting new owners and a new home. Or perhaps a home occupation, office, business opportunity. A garage and several outbuildings remain. There is also a drilled well and a septic system with a 1,250 cement tank and leach field. The property is in the vicinity of the Town schools Elementary to High as well as medical services at Grace Cottage Hospital. Townshend Dam Recreational area is up the road toward the ski areas. Or follow the West River down the road to Brattleboro shopping, dining and vibrant arts culture. What more could you ask? Just your vision of life on this Village plot of land in the Green Mountains and verdant countryside of Vermont.
