A 3-unit structure, this is at least part of Ezra Wait's old house and tavern, according to town history. I the owner live in the front unit, the middle unit is the rental, and the back (the old barn) is commercial space rented to an amazing architect.
Recently renovated, the rental is modest but comfortable. I tried to be green where possible with the renovation - the island countertop is old blackboard slate, the downstairs floor though new, is from timber across the gap, salvageable original floorboards were saved for the sliding barn door, trashcans are old sap buckets, etc.
Small as it is, the property has 4 plum trees, 1 cherry tree, 2 pair trees (not fruiting yet), 2 apple trees, and blueberry, blackberry, raspberry, gooseberry, and seaberry plants. The aim is to create an edible landscape, but it's at the beginning. About 1/3 of the property is wooded, which leaves for a small yard.
The Mad River is across the street and a dip is really refreshing. Right there is The Sweet Spot for coffee, espresso drinks, locally made small batch French style custard ice cream, and the best coconut cupcakes in the world:) The sports store in the village runs short tubing and kayaking trips when the river is high enough.
The village also has The Artisan's Gallery with craft from Vermont artists, a small museum (weekends), the town library, a very sweet church, a deli, and more.
The movie theater (and restaurant), The Big Picture, is 1/4 mile walk. The Waitsfield Farmer's Market (Saturdays) is a little further. There's a sidewalk from the village to both places, and the more commercial part of town.
