As you drive around rural Connecticut you can’t help but notice vacant farmhouses. As small family farms found themselves at a disadvantage when competing with the large corporate agri-businesses, squeezed by the high value of land prices, and the shrinking number of young people interested in doing the grunt-hard work of a life on the farm.
This house is situated on the property of a large land holder who raises beef cattle for sale to local restaurants or drop-in customers at the farm stand. It’s successful, but has the luxury of a wealthy owner who doesn’t really have to make a profit to get by. I think it will sit here empty until the owner decides to remodel it for the use of the estate manager or something similar. At least it has a chance.
