Spaulding Road Forest is being offered as two separate pieces: Parcel One is 65.3 acres and Parcel Two is 56.2 acres. The parcels are contiguous so they could also be purchased together as one property. Most of this property was likely cleared for pasture in the 1800s. Small areas on relatively gentle terrain were likely used as tilled fields or hay land. The majority of the pastureland has now been regenerated to be forested. Both parcels have long road frontage on a well-maintained town road with electricity and utilities on the street. Access through both parcels is easy due to old logging trails that run throughout the forest, and both have good options for building a house or camp.
These properties are located outside the town of St. Johnsbury, Vermont on a quiet road where a few other houses are present. In town, there are numerous shops, restaurants, and other amenities located a couple of minutes drive down the hill. Both I-91 and I-93 run by St. Johnsbury, making access easy. Boston, Massachusetts is less than three hours away, Hartford, Connecticut is a 3 1/2-hour drive, and New York City, New York is just under 6 hours away. Burke Mountain Resort is a half-hour drive from the property with great skiing and outdoor recreation available. The Lamoille Valley Rail Trail starts in St Johnsbury and is a 93-mile, four-season, multi-purpose recreational corridor across northern Vermont that ends in Swanton, VT.
The access to Parcel Two is from Spaulding Road in St. Johnsbury. Spaulding Road is off Route 2, making getting to the property very easy. There is a short driveway that leads into the property, and there are utilities on the road frontage.
Parcel Two is 56.2 acres and has the highest elevation of both parcels at around 1400 feet along the northern border. A short driveway off Spaulding Road leads to the old logging trails that wind through the property. There are a couple of potential building sites located in different parts of this parcel, and with tree clearing, there could be views to the southeast or west. The best use of this land would be for a camp or homesite with good recreational opportunities available out your front door. In the forest, there is a small area of wetlands that appears to hold water for most of the year. Signs of deer and turkeys are found in the woods, which would provide good hunting or wildlife viewing. By improving the old trails, walking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the forest would be easy to do. This parcel has utilities available on the street that could be brought into a future homesite.
