Conveniently located on historic Main Street in Orford across from the fabled Orford Ridge, just steps from the bridge spanning the Connecticut River and connecting Vermont and New Hampshire, minutes from the entrance to I-91 and a quick jaunt south to the heart of the Upper Valley or north to Bradford and St. Johnsbury, this 1805 temple front Greek Revival style colonial was thoroughly updated by a well-known and highly respected local builder. The true beauty of this historic home is that it retains all of its original charm and many historic details have been maintained while modern, state of the art systems have been installed along with insulation and efficiency improvements that combine to create an Energy Star rated home. An open first floor kitchen and dining area, large mudroom entry, bath and sitting and living rooms are found on the first floor. The second floor offers three bedrooms and two full baths, and the third floor offers an enormous and very flexible open space suitable for a variety of possible uses. Walking distance to local shops, schools and the local public library and 20-25 minutes from Hanover and Norwich, and with nearby access to all the recreational possibilities offered by the Connecticut River and Lakes Morey and Fairlee, hiking, hunting, fishing, golf and skiing at the Dartmouth Skiway, Burke and Cannon Mountain. History and modern-day efficiency combine to make this a wonderful opportunity.
