South Warren Forest

Property Details

Location: Warren, Washington County, VT
Price: $522,000
Acres: 88.5
Type: Multiple Uses


The property is well suited to buyers seeking to establish a large family compound in Warren with plenty of acreage to roam or, property developers aiming to subdivide and sell multiple homesite parcels (which the current zoning supports). The land abuts the Green Mountain National Forest, and is a short drive to Sugarbush Ski Resort, Blueberry Lake, and Warren Village.

Key property highlights include:

  • Ideal home sites close to town road;
  • 8 miles to Sugarbush Resort and 6 miles to Warren, Village
  • Views of Mount Adams with tree clearing.
  • Bordered on the west by Green Mountain National Forest & south by lands of the State of Vermont.


The property is situated along the southern end of Plunkton Road, a town road that leads north to the heart of Warren’s scenic easterly highlands.  The potential building sites are in an ideal location, very close to Route 100 and only 15 minutes from Sugarbush Resort. Blueberry Lake is walking distance up the road, where you can boat, swim or fish on a pristine, uncrowded lake. From the land, walking access is available to the adjacent Green Mountain National Forest, where tens of thousands of acres are available for recreational pursuits.

Boston is three hours away, and New York City six hours. This area of central Vermont has much to offer, from restaurants and cultural amenities to outdoor pursuits. Burlington and Lake Champlain are an hours drive away.


Access can be considered excellent with  +/-660’ of frontage along Plunkton Road, a town-maintained, graveled road, with electric power and telephone services roadside.  There is an existing old driveway cut into the land supporting a future internal road/driveway to support future home development.

Site Description

The land’s relatively high elevation  (+/-1,600’) provides attractive, potential views to the southeast of Mount Adams, a nearby peak with elevation of 3,180’ which lies along the Northfield Range, also in view with tree clearing.

The potential homesites offer an easterly to southeastern aspect covering gently sloping land with a few moderate slopes in between gentle benches. Soils in this area appears to be somewhat well drained. One of two possible old driveways can be used to access these potential homesites, one off Plunkton Road and one off the beginning of Southview Road (see maps for location).

The northeastern corner of the land is relatively flat supporting tall softwood trees on variable soil conditions with some wet areas. The west central area is the highpoint with elevation of 1,700’ with a walking trail leading to the site. From this point south the land falls off covering variable terrain with rock out-crops in many areas creating an attractive hiking destination.

One year round stream runs along the southeastern boundary. Another small steam drains through the land creating small pools and tiny falls. The southern boundary runs along the Warren/Granville town line with Route 100 +/-300’ from the southern boundary.

Forest Resource

Forest aesthetics for the property can be considered highly attractive given the older age classes and dense overstory canopy, however in the northwest area, a dense understory exists given the nature of the mostly softwood species composition which can thrive in semi-light conditions. The western and south hardwood stand is mature with large trees while the area near the potential homesites has younger trees.
