We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Norwich VT (properly pronounced "norrich,") population 3000, is directly across the Connecticut River from Hanover, NH. The two towns in different states share a school district, which I believe is unique.
What caught my eye was this handsome place:
Built in 1998, but looks right for the land. I like the attached barn, but the place only has 19 acres. Asking price $3,450,000. Things are not cheap in New England these days. You can read about this house here.
"Norrich" is for elitest Dartmouth profs, doctors, trust funders et al, highest per capita income/wealth in VT. Oh, and they vote lockstep 9-1 Democrat, so not Maggie's kind of folks! Much more real here in Rio Blanco, one town south, and you get a much bigger bang for the real estate buck.
For you folks at home, that's just down the road from Gloucester (pronounced "glos-tah") and just around the bend from Worcester (pronounced "wis-tah").
Yet when they write, they look so normal!
"but the place only has 19 acres"
Yeah. Barely worth considering for a dog run by country standards, huh? S'prised you even mentioned it. And while I'd agree that, overall, the house fits the land, there's something amiss with the architecture. The left side looks too 'busy' by New England standards, no?
Now, the pic on the right, that's authentic. Brick building, steeples, autumn foliage, an American flag -- it doesn't get any better than that.
