Protected by a conservation easement and well suited to sugarbush management and timber investment. Potential tap count of 37,676 taps, exceptional timber resource with standing timber value of $1,149,100, long town road frontage with developed internal trails, secure access with roadside power, attractive location within 7 miles of Montpelier, and an old house and 2 acres outside the land's conservation easement, providing an easily developable homestead. The property is on the eastern slope of Chase Mountain, a scenic, secluded area with the headwaters of Chase Brook. Much of the terrain slopes gently, with rolling hills on primarily southern, northern and eastern aspects. There is a 5-acre meadow where the right-of-way enters the property. The property includes a former caretaker's house which house is in disrepair and is being sold as is with no warranty. This site offers an ideal location for a sugarhouse or home. Species are dominated by hardwoods and include sugar maple, red maple, hemlock and white ash. Forest stocking is generally overstocked and thinning activity can occur at any time. The property offers an exceptional potential sugarbush opportunity. The conservation easement on the property is held by the Vermont Land Trust. The principal objective of the easement is to maintain, grow and harvest forest resources and products on a sustainable basis. Subdivision and future development are prohibited; however, forestry and sugarbush operations are permitted.
