Hunger Mountain Parcel is an increasingly rare property with views, house site possibilities and forest. This unique 64-acre building site has views of Hunger Mountain and the wilderness that surrounds the Worcester Mountain Range. There are options of several house sites within old fields broken up by forested tracks of land.
Hunger Mountain Parcel is a high-elevation property located at around 1,500 feet, with up-close views of Hunger Mountain and the Worcester Range. The Worcester Range divides Middlesex from the Waterbury/Stowe area, located just over the range to the west. This property is 3.5 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.
Hunger Mountain Parcel is located at the end of a Class 3 town road that is well maintained and plowed in the winter. The property is accessed directly from South Bear Swamp Road and there is electricity roadside. There is a large clearing on the road that could be a home site, or there are semi-open clearings within the property’s interior that could also be used to build a house or camp.
The most interesting aspect of this parcel is its unique location, directly in front of and below Hunger Mountain. This perspective is reminiscent of a view you might find in the White Mountains, or perhaps the Rocky Mountains, but seldom seen in Vermont. Hunger Mountain has some exposed rock faces, accented by a vast forest wilderness that make this view one of a kind. There are several old clearings that could be used to build a house or camp, with old stone walls and small tracks of forest breaking up the old fields. This could be your place to build a permanent home or an easily-accessible vacation get-away.
Much of this parcel hosts young trees which have become established since much of the pastureland was abandoned 10-15 years ago. As such, these areas (along South Bear Swamp Road and former Town Highway 15 at the land’s northern end) are still semi-open with young trees closing in many areas. These areas can still be brush-mowed to reclaim the former open pasture, exposing further the views of Mount Hunger.
The center of the property hosts an older age class of trees with hardwoods on the high ground and a mix of hardwoods and softwoods near the stream that parallels the land’s eastern boundary.
