This is really a piece of Barre's history.  4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, plus a 2 bedroom accessory apartment and separate artists' studios.  It all sits on 5 acres of apple orchard. Since it used to be a full-on apple orchard, there's the "Apple Chapel" which was used for sorting, boxing, crating, and...
