For those seeking country living in central Vermont with good access, established driveway, nice local views, rolling terrain and roadside electric power, then Parker Road Tract may be the right fit.
The property is in Vershire, a township whose “village center” consists of a small collection of homes, a post office and town offices 5 miles to the north of the property along Route 113. The town has a grass-roots organization known as “VerShare”, which works to build community involvement and economic development. The Mountain School, an independent boarding school for high school juniors, with a focus on sustainable living, is 3 miles to the north. Vershire offers a classic Vermont landscape of rolling hills, small family farms and managed woodland. The hamlet of West Fairlee is 2.5 miles to the east and includes a local convenience store.
Access is provided by 1,100’ of direct frontage along Parker Road, a gravel town road with cable and telephone service roadside. It is thought that electric power is 1,700’ from the property.
The property offers primarily western exposure with mostly gentle terrain and well-drained soils. The property id ideally suited for homestead development, considering its proximity to power, town road services, an existing driveway and a level cleared site. Views from the potential house site include local hillsides and pastureland.
The land can easily support development of open meadows, given the gentle terrain and dry soils. The forest resource was harvested in 2014, in which an older age class was removed, releasing a younger tree crop of mixed hardwoods and larger white pine.
