- Acreage 58.1
- Zoning Rural Cons. & Forest
This gorgeous 58.1 +/- acre woodland offers distant mountain views of the Green Mountain National Forest with excellent potential for a house site in the lovely southern Vermont town of Bennington! Perfect for an outdoorsman, the expansive woodland backs up to the state-owned, 926-acre Bald Mountain recreational area. Beech and Red Oak offer great mast crops for wildlife. Existing woods roads provide easy access to much of the acreage & offer private recreational trails for cross-country skiing, hiking, ATVing & the like. Preliminary 2018 soil testing indicate conditions suitable for a state-approved, private wastewater system. There is an existing, roughed-in driveway in need of a final topcoat that extends to the viable soil testing locations. Power is available along the road frontage of the town-maintained and plowed Chapel Road, with utility pole #25 located diagonally from the existing driveway. Consolidated Communications offers Cable TV & high-speed internet to homes located along Chapel Road. Approximately 30 acres of manageable hardwood timber with potential future value comprise the westerly portion of the land. Offering ideal deer habitat conditions, there is 28 acres of predominantly softwoods on the high ground of the property. The property is not enrolled in Current Use but is likely eligible. Conveniently located just minutes to the downtown Bennington hub. Your private recreational paradise awaits!
