Introduction

You can begin to enjoy this property the moment you buy it with its recently built new cabin in place. There are nice views to be had from the cabin, and its private 2-acre field, plus an additional 36.5 acres of forest land to roam and explore.

Property highlights include:

  • Newly built unfinished cabin waiting for you to add your own personal touches;
  • Easy access with a driveway in place on a plowed dirt road with utilities available
  • Small year-round brook running through the forest;
  • Potential for a small hobby sugarbush exists in one part of the forest;
  • Excellent wildlife viewing or hunting with deer, moose, grouse, and bear all present;
  • Small clearing at the property's highest point with views to Mount Moosilauke

Location

The property is located on Ben Dexter Road in West Topsham, Vermont which is 5 miles from US Route 302. Interstate 91 is 15 miles away from the property making getting there easy for long weekends or a future homestead. Boston and Hartford Connecticut are less than three hours away, and NYC is a 5 and a half-hour drive. 

Access

From Route 302, take Willey Hill Road to Ben Dexter Road. The property has a short driveway accessed directly from Ben Dexter Road in West Topsham VT. The cabin sits above the driveway, at the top edge of the field which is slightly sloping toward the forest and stream below.

Site Description

There is a lot to like about this property, from the new cabin to the open field and well-stocked forest. There are good-sized maples in one section of the forest that could be used as a hobby sugarbush and sections of hemlock and pine nearer to the small brook that runs through the property. Take a hike to the top of the hill and find what's left of a cleared field with long-range views of Mount Moosilauke and the Franconian Mountain Range in NH. This small clearing still has a few apple trees at the edge and some juniper bushes near the open area at the top. This clearing could be made larger with some tree clearing and could support another structure.

At almost 40 acres, this is a nice-sized parcel for wildlife viewing and hunting or just enjoying a nice walk through your own private forest. Several stone walls are found in different areas, suggesting the property's past life as part of a much larger farm. The open field near the cabin could be used to grow vegetables or maybe have a few chickens or some beehives. The opportunities are many on this property and all yours to explore.

House/Buildings

Newly constructed, unfinished cabin. Open plan with windows facing east and south with views present.
