Property Description

Ol’ Spooner Farmland is an ideal 62 +/- acre residential, recreational & agricultural property offering income-producing sugar maples & subdivision possibilities in Fairfax, VT! A quick commute to Burlington & St. Albans, the property is just 5 minutes off I-89 exit 18. Perfect for a hunter or homesteader, the property offers a serene hideaway setback from the end of a quiet country road. Primarily a wooded parcel, there are two ponds, 6-arces of open land, an old apple orchard, and over 4000’ of woods roads providing easy access to the bulk of the acreage. The front of the property has 1000 +/- sugar maple tree taps spanning 6.4 acres. Once supporting beans & sheep, this old farmland has been carefully maintained by the same family since the 1960s with historical roots back to the 1750s. With 2-acre zoning on about half of the property, there may be development potential if appropriate septic is identified per state regulations. The property is enrolled in the tax reduction program, Current Use. Power is available along Spooner Road with utility pole #65 78 located near the parcel boundary & high-speed internet is offered to homes located along Spooner Road through GlobalNet. Spooner Road is a shared, privately maintained road up to the property boundary, which is also the town line. The road is in Georgia; the property is in Fairfax. The property borders the Georgia Town Forest, offering increased recreational opportunities and access to the 106-acre Silver Lake!
