Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because is offers a stunning 5.6 acres with frontage on both Ashpohtag and Bald Mountain Road in the heart of rural Norfolk. The land has seasonal mountain views, and includes an existing 432 Sq.Ft. Sugar Shack, a beautifully constructed barn with electricity.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

This project would begin with picking a path to establish the driveway. Clearing and grading would be done from this point all the way to the build site. The build site would also require some selective clearing. There is ample space here to build for a single family home with garage, studio space or accessory dwelling unit.


West of Hartford sits Litchfield County of Connecticut. With a county seat of the same name, Litchfield County has a population of 8,192 and encompasses just 56.8 square miles of the state. With plenty of space for outdoor activities, Litchfield is home to Topsmead State Forest, Prospect Mountain Preserve, and Humaston Brook State Park Scenic Reserve.

This small, unspoiled New England town of Norfolk is surrounded by beautiful hills and forests, and offers a wonderful variety of things to do. Norfolk is perhaps best known as the site of the Yale Summer School of Music—Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, which hosts an annual chamber music concert series in "the Music Shed", a performance hall located on the Ellen Battell Stoeckel estate to the west of the village green.

Land Prep Estimate : $50,000 - $75,000
