Hemmings Motor News Longtime Publishers Car Property Barn


about 'terry's barn'

Terry Ehrich, the publisher of Hemmings Motor News, designed and built this exceptional, high-quality structure to be his own home and to house his collection of vintage cars.

Terry took great care in the design and creation, sparing no expense on the details of security, safety and construction. Full of architectural interest and surprising details, it's evident that there must have been great pleasure taken in the creative process of conceiving and constructing the building.

When Terry was alive, large gatherings were held here and it was used for various projects, but he unfortunately did not live to complete and occupy the living space. Now offered for sale, "Terry's Barn" presents a unique opportunity and value, ready to be configured and finished to fit your own vision and needs. The approximately 9,010 square feet is divided among four levels.

The largely finished two lower levels were designed for storage and workspace for anywhere from seven to twenty-five cars, depending on the designation of use and whether lifts would be used.

The upper two levels offer 3,470 square feet of dramatic, unfinished space. There are multiple levels, cathedral ceilings, sky lights, two balconies and a cupola that provide a design layout to build upon or reconfigure to your needs and vision.

This is a unique property on a large village lot, offering any number and combination of possibilities for an investor, homeowner, artist or car collector in a wonderful southern Vermont location. Among the potential uses are the following:

◦Single Family Residence: The completion as planned for a single family residence on the upper levels with lower level space for storage and work.

◦ Condominiums: Permits are in place for the creation of four living units.

◦ Primary residence with additional one to three rental units.

◦ Artist Space: For a resident artist, the expansive open space on the lower level with sprinkler system and garage doors allows for machinery and large work in a variety of mediums.

◦Home Occupation: Residential zoning allows for a range of home occupations.
