Mountain View Forest is a perfect combination of a maturing hardwood forest and scattered hemlock and white pine stands all on 59 survey acres. In the middle of the western boundary, there is an existing rustic camp. As the camp is situated directly on the road, access is easy for future remodeling or perhaps building another structure. Perfect for a house, cabin or maybe a new off-the-grid green building, any of which would have incredible views of New Hampshire's White Mountains.
Mountain View Forest sits between Rowell Road and Stacey Road, two Class IV roads in Vershire, Vermont. A short drive on Route 113 from either Chelsea to the west or Fairlee to the east will bring you to the camp. The camp and land are less than a mile from the last electric pole, so it may be practical to connect a future dwelling to the grid. For now, enjoy an off-grid experience in a private and peaceful setting. Access is available during the winter months via a VAST trail that goes by the camp on Rowell Road.
There is road frontage on two sides of the property boundary, along Stacey Road to the east and Rowell Road top the west. This large frontage allows for access at any spot along both roads, providing the ability to build another house, barn or outbuilding in another location on the land. The roads are designated as Class IV, meaning they are not plowed in the winter by the town. As the camp is situated just off the road, access in winter is easy via snowmobile. We understand that the plow trucks turn around just down the road, and encourage the new owner to talk to the town about plowing to the camp, as no one has lived there for many years.
This classic Vermont forested land, regenerated from old fields, has stocking that is approximately 65-75 years old. The hardwood forest includes a stand or two of hemlock and white pine, with several small springs and streams meandering throughout the parcel. This type of forest is associated with supporting a good wildlife habitat for turkey, grouse, bear and white-tailed deer. It is interesting to note the flat areas marked by old stone walls in the middle of the forest were once open fields. One of the intriguing highlights of the property is a cleared 3-acre field directly in front of the camp. Enjoy local and long-range views over the field to the summit of Mount Washington in the White Mountains of New Hampshire on clear days.
