Whether you are looking to build your dream home (or homes) or would like to begin or resume farming the land, the possibilities are endless for this uniquely beautiful property. Situated less than one mile from the center of Greenwich, only 20 minutes from Saratoga or Bennington, Vermont, and less than an hour to Albany, there isn’t a better location. Overlooking the Battenkill River, this 100 acres of south-facing sloped land includes tillable fields, pastures and woodlands, with multiple springs on the property.
If you are interested in building your dream home, there are several great locations on the property from which to choose. Imagine waking up each morning to a 365 degree view of mountains and streams - it would be just like living in a postcard! Potential sites for new construction have privacy from the farming operation. The possibility of sub-dividing the property to sell the farm is feasible and could be explored further with the Town of Greenwich planning department.
The varied topography features 86 open acres including pastureland and 46 tillable acres. Historically, it was a conventional dairy farm (until 2001), with fields organically hayed after that, positioning the land for Organic certification. Purchased in 2013, the property became Soliphilia Farm, organically feeding, and pasture raising Freedom Ranger chickens. The farm topography and infrastructure are a great fit for diversified farming (livestock, vegetable, silvopasture, and permaculture for example). The farm is particularly well suited for Restoration/Regenerative Agriculture. The current farmer has explored these possibilities in detail and is very willing to work with new owners to ensure a successful transition. Additionally, the possibility of leasing the working farm exists if the new buyer isn’t interested in working the land themselves.
If interested, the farm infrastructure already in place enables you to start working the land immediately. The largest barn, built in 1939, and used as a dairy and hay barn also features a milk house addition, complete with equipment. Additional structures include a machine shop, pole barn, brooder house, shed - all in good condition as well as a smaller barn that could be converted to a farm store.
The front of the property hosts two houses, both updated and well-kept. The larger home (#2091) has three bedrooms and two baths built on a concrete foundation which features a drive-in garage. The interior has an open floor plan, a large, well laid out kitchen and features a lovely view of the Batten Kill. The second house (#2071) is quaint and cozy with a large three season room, three bedrooms and one bath. Both homes have forced air/oil heat, septic systems and springwater. The house at 2071 has been rented regularly on airbnb.com since summer 2017- it’s a great way to generate extra income. These homes can be used as your primary residence, temporary housing while you build the home of your dreams, to host farm staff, as guest housing, or rental properties - whatever suits your needs.
Greenwich is a quintessential small town, steeped in history and replete with natural resources making it a lovely place to live, work and recreate. Greenwich Central School District, right in the village and a mile from the land, has a strong record of scholastic and athletic achievements. Visible from this property are Thunder Mountain, a popular hiking destination and Willard Mountain Ski Resort. Greenwich town beach on the Batten Kill is just across the road, and proximity to Saratoga offers entertainment and cultural opportunities to name just a few local treasures.
