- Acreage 65.35
A rare opportunity has come to market to acquire 65 pristine acres on Chapel Hill in historic Sherman, CT. The D-shaped property is partially buffered along the perimeter by Glen Brook flowing through Naromi Land Trust holdings. The center of the land consists of a level hilltop that would be an astounding home site. Along the hillside, several small wetlands feed tumbling rivulets that flow to Glen Brook. The property is a mature hardwood forest that shades an open understory. Stone walls and game trails criss-cross the land, which is easily walked in any direction due to the lack of thickets of invasive plants that choke many of the other forests of the region. Not developed since the farming days of the 19th century, the natural beauty of the parcel is breathtaking. Prior to being tax-relieved with a CT 490 exemption, a 14 lot subdivision and road were approved and could yet be developed by new owners. Build a hilltop estate with potential commanding views or develop lots to suit your plans. The subdivision provides strategic options to donate or conserve lots for flexible tax benefits into the future. The surrounding community is sparsely developed, with a country estate vibe. Near shopping in New Milford and Danbury, Sherman is a quaint village and is a quick drive to Pawling, NY and its Metro North Station.
