Your 10 Second Commute Vermont Home is for Sale
3325 Hinesburg Road – Richmond, VT 05477
Live & work at home. Ideal for a home business, artist studio / gallery, writer’s retreat… or telecommuting.
Do you dream of having a home business, do you already have one or do you want to telecommute from home for your employer?
Working from home continues to be popular especially in today’s gas conscious culture and with those who have young children given the high cost of child-care. Many parents are home-schooling their children too.
My wife and I enjoyed our 10-second commute for over 20 years as we started and operated a web-based retailing business in 1994 selling audio books (AudiobooksOnline.com). The property is 11.4 acres with a 2-story colonial built in 1979 and many upgrades over the last thirty years. Upgrades included the conversion of the 2-car attached garage to business space to accommodate a stocking area for audio books, a few employees for shipping & receiving, bookkeeping…new floors, two additions including an all-glass solarium and a Monitor Barn with a 3-bay garage, large family / recreation room and office space. The Monitor Barn was built in 2011. We had the contractor install some features that we knew we weren’t going to use but thought that the next owner might want them. Features like several wall port stations (Internet, phone & satellite TV) for employees and plumbing in the slab for a kitchen sink.
I used the 2nd level (over the 3-bay garage) of the Monitor Barn as an office however it could accommodate several employees with a half bath. The tile floor of the 2nd level is radiant heated with propane just as the garage and 1st level is. The 1st level of the Monitor Barn could be used as a business meeting room, and/or an employee break area.
The 32′ X 26′ (832 FT2) 3-bay finished garage (radiant floor heat & white-washed stained shiplap walls) with 9′ wide doors could be used for any number of hobby, craft / woodworking business, manufacturing… uses. Or you could park your vehicles (cars, tractor, lawn mower, snow-mobile…) in the garage.
