Imagine your dream home combined with an ideal recreational 62 +/- acre parcel in the gorgeous town of Fairfax, VT. With 2-acre zoning on about half of the property there may be development potential. This old farmland begins at the end of a private road & has been carefully maintained by the same family since the 1960s with historical roots back to the 1750s. The farmland once supported beans & sheep. Today, the property features income-producing sugar maple trees with 1000+ taps that span 6.4 acres. Beautiful, thriving wetland areas cover approx. 5-acres of the property & offer great enjoyment of the outdoors with wildlife making regular appearances; a good match for water fowlers or birdwatchers. The property is enrolled in the State's tax reduction program, Current Use, with 6-acres withheld to account for the 4-acre transmission line easement & a future potential 2-acre homestead, if appropriate septic is identified per state regs. We understand a cut is available in accordance with the forestry plan & is estimated to be $5-10K in value. Power available with utility pole #65 78 located along Spooner Road near the boundary. Spooner Road is a shared, privately maintained road; to our knowledge, no maintenance agreement exists. The road becomes a class IV road and continues through the property providing easy access to the more secluded acres. We understand that the land bordering the western boundary is public land, offering spectacular views of the nearby Silver Lake.
