Being offered to the public for the first time. When you enter the private drive, you are brought to the central part of the property with gorgeous ponds and brooks. This property is home to abundant wildlife and native plants. Largemouth bass inhabit the ponds, deer, and wild turkeys and the resident Blue Heron can be seen regularly. There is a well that produces 45 gallons per minute and the property can be hooked up to the town sewer if needed. Although the property is in central Connecticut you will feel as if you are in Maine.
The property offers a variety of options for your personal estate. The large acreage offers plenty of options for a stunning Family Estate that could offer one home, multiple homes, or guest residences. There is plenty of room for hiking trails, horses, and fields that could lend to private orchards or other uses you dream of. Together with your ideas - the possibilities are endless!
Although this property offers much privacy and serenity, it is only a short 5-minute drive to the centers of Marlborough and East Hampton where you will find 2 major chain Supermarkets, 2 major pharmacies, many restaurants, medical facilities, parks, libraries, art centers, schools, and shops that can only be found in a small-town setting.
Located in the heart of Connecticut, you are only 12 minutes from Glastonbury, and 20 minutes from Hartford, which provide every type of entertainment, shopping, and activities, and 3 of the most highly rated restaurants in the state. Hartford is also home to Brainard Airport field which can handle private jets and again is only a 20-minute drive away.
New Haven and the Connecticut shoreline are less than an hour's drive away. N.Y. and Boston are only a couple of hours away. Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine are close by for beaches, skiing, or a quick getaway. But why go to Maine when you are already living in “Maine“? The area also has the largest casinos on the east coast, Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun, which are a 45-minute drive away and offer a multitude of entertainment options.
This property is comprised of 6 separate contiguous parcels, all were put under public act 490 (referred to as forestry) over 30 years ago. The purpose of this act was to keep the property from being overly developed by dramatically reducing the assessment, which reduces the property tax. The high penalties if taken out of forestry in the first 10 years are no longer applicable. A parcel can come out of forestry and be developed while the other remains under forestry and taxed at the lower rate. You can tell that this is a beautiful property from the pictures, however, when you see it in person it is simply magnificent!
