Contract in the North East Kingdom

 

81 Howard Road

81 Howard Road

81 Howard Road, asking $2.899 million, has a buyer just 60 days after hitting the market. At first blush that’s a high price for a home so far up and east, especially one on just 1.7 acres in the 4-acre zone, but if you’ll look at the pictures you’ll see what a nifty place it is. As for its undersized lot, that’s really only a FAR issue, because there’s 200 acres next door that you can enjoy without paying taxes on. And with 5,500 feet already here, who needs more?

Nice house. Brian Tunney listing.

    Very cool house.

    Know the house, know the sellers, who were in the house for ~20 years. Meticulous, with everything done to the highest standard by a couple who knows the difference and were able to make it happen.

      Can you ask the sellers for me where they found that nifty antique barrel-shape wood stove that’s shown in the LR photo? I seriously covet that!

      • Cato says he’s known the buyers for many years, so, Cato? And you’re right – it’s a stove to covet.

          Huh? Cato says, “Know the house, know the sellers.

          In any event, I am available for immediate pickup of said stove if buyers want to unload. Cash deal, no trade.

          • Well I assume the sellers are more likely to know where the stove came from than the buyers, no? On the other hand, I have a pick up truck, and younger brother Gideon is deft at midnight moves, so if I loaned him my truck and you gave him your money …

          I feel like I’m in the middle of an Abbott and Costello bit.

          ANYWAY, I found an Aussie manufacturer of a similar looking barrel wood stove. The one at 81 Howard, owned by sellers or buyers, has a nice antique patina that I prefer.

          I see your truck and younger brother with a midnight gathering skills and raise you a son with a much bigger truck and Army reconnaissance skills. Game set match. 🙂
