Long-range views of the Green Mountain Range are the highlight of this parcel. With views to both the south and west, this kind of property is hard to find in central Vermont.
The open, 14-acre field is located along the road frontage on East Bear Swamp Road in Middlesex, Vermont. This property is 3 miles from I-89 in north-central Vermont, with Montpelier a 7-mile drive to the south, and Burlington a 40-minute drive to the northwest. Boston and Montreal are within a 3-hour drive to the southeast and northwest respectively, and New York City is a 5-hour drive to the south.
Easy to get to, Green Mountains parcel is a perfect place to build your dream home. Directly on the road, with around 1,300’ of frontage, there are several places to install a driveway. The open field offers a few different sites to build a home, with the top of the field offering the best views. Electricity is at the road, and access to the interstate make this a perfect place for an escape.
Everyone seems to want a view from their property, and this could be one of the best in central Vermont. Looking south and west at the Green Mountain Range means long hours of sun in the colder months and amazing sunsets year-round. Set your house back against your forested acres, and you have both privacy and views—you can see Killington and Sugarbush Ski Resorts from the field. The level to gently sloping field of 14 acres, and the 63-acre forest behind it, give you the opportunity to do a number of different things with the property. Perhaps a large garden to grow your own vegetables? Or maybe a small vineyard to make wine? How about building a barn with your house and having some cows, sheep or horses? The possibilities are many with this parcel, all it takes is your dreams and some imagination to make it happen.
The forest management plan summarizes three stands on the parcel. The forest areas originated from old field abandonment about 100 years ago, so the oldest trees are about this age. The stand was last harvested about 25-35 years ago, representing the youngest age classes.
