Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome is because it offers a lot of privacy, tucked off the road among over 10 acres of lightly forested land. There is ample road frontage, mainly level building locations with some gently sloping areas, offering the possibility for views. The nearby town of Vernon offers great community amenities, including a swimming pool.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

This setback from the road and private parcel is ideal for someone looking to be placed deeper in the forest. The main dwelling and its accessory structures would be set by the front of the parcel. An ADU could be situated toward the rear of the property. A trail system could be installed to accommodate a foot or driving path used to access them both.


Windham County of Vermont sits at the southeastern corner of the state. With a population of 45,905, this county stretches across 798 square miles. The area includes portions of the Green Mountain National Forest and the entirety of Townshend State Forest, Putney Mountain, and Newfane Town Forest. The county seat is the town of Newfane.

The town was chartered in 1672 as part of the Massachusetts Grant. In 1736. When the Connecticut River was established as a boundary, two separate towns were created: Hinsdale, New Hampshire and Hinsdale, Vermont. The people who lived in Hinsdale, Vermont wanted a separate name, and in 1802 the Vermont legislature changed the town's name to Vernon. The name is said to have been chosen after President George Washington's plantation home, Mount Vernon.

Land Prep Estimate : $80,000 - $125,000
