This unique, 18-acre building site has views of the Green Mountain National Forest in Rochester VT and river frontage on the White River. The National Forest provides year-round recreational activities in undisturbed wilderness. Enjoy swimming and fishing in the White River from your doorstep.
The properties are accessed from Maple Hill Road and Austin Hill Road, which are both off Vermont Route 73. The town of Rochester is just down the road with a mix of small shops including a hardware store, bookstore and café, a full-service mountain bike shop, several restaurants and a grocery store. Bethel, Vermont is 25 miles away, providing access to I-89 and points south and north. Route 73 East traverses the National Forest toward Brandon, Vermont, with Middlebury a bit further north. Warren and Waitsfield are less than a half hour to the north, which is where you'll be able to ski both Sugarbush Resort and Mad River Glen ski areas. This part of the state has long been known as a hidden gem in central Vermont, with all of the activities, amenities and landscapes that so many people love about living in the Green Mountain State.
The location of both properties is on Maple Hill Road in Rochester, VT. Maple Hill is off Route 73, which makes for very easy access year-round, with power at the street.
Riverfront Parcel has a long scenic stretch of frontage on the White River which is not in the flood plain. This section of the White is a particularly good place to recreate. Enjoy fishing, canoeing and swimming from your front door. The majority of the property is an open field, with a couple of acres of forest on the edges. Building a house tucked up to the forest’s edge will give you some pretty impressive views of the National Forest. There is potential for agricultural endeavors with good southwestern exposure. You could have a small farm with horses, cows, chickens or other animals as well, if that’s in your plans. Maybe just keep the field open and enjoy the river and mountains from your front porch. This property is not in Current Use, and as such offers the opportunity to subdivide or perhaps build a family compound with a couple of houses and outbuildings.
