The Barre Brokers Caravan was on Tuesday, and there was a full docket of houses. Sixteen, to be exact. Then, of course, Charlie Clark and I added one more--a new listing that he has on Richardson Road.
But I digress.
The sixteen houses in Barre (City and Town) comprised a wide range, everything from reconditioned 1900s houses with classic woodwork to a high-end log home with dynamite views and an elevator for $725,000.
My picks as the favorites, or maybe as the properties that got the most interest from the Realtors who came through are the following:
5 College Street--this early century house has gorgeous woodwork, great built-ins, and two levels of deck/balcony. Not the sort of thing you see everyday in Barre, and certainly not for $140,000. Big rooms, lots of space, and a butler's pantry. Cute little backyard too. Jane may have hit the nail on the head when she said, "I could live here." Email for more information.
14 Sheridan Street--similar house, rich with woodwork, and a screened back porch overlooking the backyard. The owners are putting some finishing touches on the place, including some paint/paper/plaster work. Let me know if you'd like more information.
264 Middle Road--From the road, it's hard to get a gauge on this one. And the property isn't quite as big as I thought at first--it's more in the backyard than the front yard. But the house has been freshly painted, has good-sized rooms, a great full, walkout basement, and a three car garage. Not bad for just under $200,000. Don't just drive by this one--email to schedule a showing.
Honestly, there were some great properties on the caravan, and it's always a nice opportunity to network with agents and brokers from other agencies. I'm not totally sure why all the local agencies don't put their listings on the caravan, and I'm not sure why some Realtors don't come on caravan. But you know, it's Vermont, so I'm not going to judge.
