Located at Rochester Gap along Bethel Mountain Road, the property is situated high on the Northfield Range, offering sweeping views of the Green Mountain National Forest and easy access to a potential homesite.
The property rests high on the ridge of the Northfield Range, just at the foot of Rochester Mountain, a well-known landmark from both sides of the range. The property is located in the scenic town of Rochester whose village is 5 miles to the west. The village is centered on a picturesque town green in a fertile valley carved by the White River and wedged between the Green Mountain and Northfield Ranges.
Waitsfield and the Sugarbush and Mad River Glen Ski Areas are 25 miles to the north, while the Killington-Pico Ski Resorts are 23 miles to the south. Regionally, Hartford, Connecticut is 3 hours south, and Boston is 2.75 hours southeast.
Mountain Road Parcel benefits from nearly 3,120’ of mostly level frontage along the western side of Bethel Mountain Road, a paved town road that connects the villages of Bethel and Rochester. An established driveway provides access to an internal road at the property’s center.
Terrain is mostly level, facilitating future home or camp construction, creation of meadows and recreational pursuits. Elevation is primarily at 2,100’, quite high compared to most parcels in Vermont, allowing for the exceptional views this parcel provides. Rochester Mountain is clearly in view to the east, offering a fine local view-shed. To the northwest, spectacular views of the Green Mountain Range and Green Mountain National Forest lands open up from the knoll just upslope of the existing camp. Also from this site, fine views to the northeast of the western slopes of the Northfield Mountain Range unfold. This location is level and an exceptional site for meadow conversion.
