How New England Vernacular is Vermont's Bel Lana Farm, listed among 192 acres for $1.5M? Its white-clapboard main residence, which the LandVest listing identifies as the William Russell House (c. 1854), has a witch window. For keeping out witches! Or for removing coffins from the second floor, though both explanations for these off-kilter apertures are considered apocryphal.

The Shrewsbery, Vermont, holding includes "two connected barns, 6 fenced pastures lined with stone walls, a pasture barn and a spring fed pond" connected by meandering, carriage-width trails. The 5,248-square-foot main residence has antique doors, hemlock floors, beamed ceilings, large brick fireplaces, and a generous wraparound porch.

As a bit of a bonus, one barn has a finished second floor with pine floors, and a wood stove, making it "popular for events and parties."
