Site Description


Old Farmstead Forest is an opportunity to purchase three different parcels which are part of a large 151-acre property. The farmland itself has been in the same family for over 100 years, and they've been very good stewards of their land. These parcels could be purchased as one or as separate pieces as state, and town subdivision permits are in place.

Key property highlights include:

  • There are fields to build a house or camp on each of the three parcels;
  • There is a driveway RoW into Lot 1 and Lot 4 from a paved road, and Lot 2 is directly on a paved road;
  • Old stone walls are found on all three parcels;
  • There are views of distant and local mountains, including Mt. Ascutney;
  • Excellent wildlife viewing or hunting with deer, moose, grouse, and bear all present;


Old Farmstead Forest is located on Massey Road in the southeastern section of Springfield, close to the borders of Chester, Grafton, and Rockingham. Interstate 91 is only a 10-minute drive from the properties. Boston, Massachusetts, is a 2 1/2-hour drive, Hartford, Connecticut, is 2 hours south, and New York City is just over 4 hours away. Springfield has plenty of amenities and services, including restaurants, shopping, and a hospital. In addition, there are ski areas nearby, with Magic Mountain Ski Area 30 minutes away and Stratton Mountain Resort and Bromley Mountain about a 45-minute drive. Many nice back roads also lead to quaint village towns like Grafton, Brownsville, and Londonderry.


The access to all three parcels is off paved Massey Road in southwest Springfield, Vermont. Lots 1 and 4 share a right of way just after the house at 563 Massey Road, which is approximately 1/3 of a mile long. This old farm road has been mowed and kept open for many years. The RoW is 50' wide to allow for the installation of utilities either above or below ground. Lot 2 access is just before 397 Massey Road and has utilities at the street. Fountains Land signs are on the road.

Site Description

Lot 2 is located directly off Massey Road, so utilities are available on the street. This 27-acre parcel has an even-aged mix of white pine and hardwood species in the north of the property. There are stone walls bordering its 1.5-acre field, and other stone walls can be found in the forest's interior. There is an area of wetlands near the southern section of forest land, where you'll find a variety of animal and bird species that thrive in that environment. Deer, moose, and bear could be found, as well as Barred Owls and other raptors that hunt the areas of open wetlands. You could build a home or camp easily in the field, and a grass driveway from the road is already in place, where utilities are available. This parcel connects to Lot 1 on its western boundary, and since all three Lots abut each other at some point, they could all be purchased together as one property of 151 acres in total. State and town subdivision permits are in place.
