A high-elevation parcel in the shadow of Camel's Hump providing secluded building options with emergent views a short distance from Waterbury, Stowe and Montpelier.
The parcel is located in the central Vermont town of Duxbury, a small village adjacent to the more significant town of Waterbury, known as the "Crossroads of Vermont". Waterbury lies at the junction of Interstate 89 and State Route 100, providing easy access to Stowe, Waitsfield and Sugarbush, Burlington and Montpelier. Waterbury itself offers a variety of shops and restaurants as well as the famed Ben and Jerry’s ice cream factory and the headquarters of Keurig Green Mountain Coffee Company. Much of Duxbury lies on the northern slopes of Camel’s Hump, the second highest peak in Vermont and one of the state’s more distinct landscape features.
The parcel has frontage on a private, gated section of Devlin Road, a well-established gravel road in good condition and jointly maintained with other neighbors. Devlin Road connects to Crossett Mountain Road, a town-maintained road that begins and ends on State Route 100. A driveway can easily be constructed directly off Devlin Road to the parcel, or, with more investment, the height of the parcel can be accessed via a right-of-way on a neighboring property to the best views.
This high-elevation parcel (about 2,000’ ASL) offers a secluded spot for a seasonal or year-round, off-grid home with stunning valley and mountain views. The lot rests on the upper slopes of Crossett Hill, a large north-south ridge just east of Camel’s Hump. There are level building sites on otherwise gently sloping terrain. Northern hardwood forests, with some spruce-fir and hemlock, cover the lot. Some trees, notably red spruce and yellow birch, are quite large, with diameters near or in excess of two feet. Up here, black bear, coyote and moose are likely to wander through from time to time.
