513 Taplin Hill Rd || $490,000 || Sold



Rugg Haven is a compound enjoyed by the current owners for over 50 years. This retreat is located on the border of Bradford and E. Corinth, Vermont on bucolic Taplin Hill Road. The property consists of three homes with a grand total of nine bedrooms (many with multiple beds), a three-car garage or barn, and three ponds, as well as almost 42 acres of partially cleared land with a gazebo. Two of the three structures are representative of construction techniques and materials frequently utilized in the early or mid 1970s. The third building, “the cabin”, is more modern, honey-colored log wall and loft construction. The cabin, the handiwork of noted Upper Valley builder Mike Blair, has its own driveway. All three houses have enclosed garage space, fireplaces, screened-in and or or open porches, and remarkably dry basements.The entire property is well-suited for you to put your own mark on it. This constellation of buildings, water features, and the land with existing paths is a study in flexible end use. There is also an opportunity to re-purpose Rugg Haven into a special events facility, a focused facility (yoga?, cross country?), not to mention rental possibilities. Although decidedly private, Rugg Haven is nevertheless only six miles from “downtown” Bradford with its various commercial amenities such as restaurants, the iconic FarmWay!, Hannaford's and I-91. The drive to Hanover is also a simple proposition. A rare chance to acquire an unusual compound in a desirable rural location.
