Located at the end of a quiet country road, Camp Sky Acres offers a unique high elevation house site with superb views, open pastures, well-stocked sugarbush and swimming pond.


Location

The village of Washington is a small, rural town situated 20 minutes away from the nearby city of Barre and 30 minutes from Montpelier, the state capital. Both Barre and Montpelier offer all amenities and services. Chelsea, Vermont, a quaint country community, is located roughly 6 miles south. Hanover, NH, home of Dartmouth College, is located 27 miles southeast. For weekend commuters, the drive from Boston is approximately 3 hours.


Access

The property has approximately 3,000' of frontage along Sky Acres Road, a pleasant road that meanders by the pond, pastures and woodland. Sky Acres Road is a fully-maintained town road that dead-ends at the home and lodge. With only one other home on this section of road, there is virtually no traffic. In addition, there is 1,800' of frontage along an extension of Sky Acres Road, a Class IV road. A 3,100' internal access road leads off Sky Acres Road (adjacent to the pond) in a northerly direction, through a maple grove to a highland meadow at the property's northern end.


Site Description

Camp Sky Acres was formerly part of a Girl Scouts of America summer camp; some reminders of that camp still exist on the property, including a large 10' deep pond suitable for swimming and surrounded by meadows. The open meadows total nearly 100 acres. An upper meadow includes a potential house site situated atop one of the highest open hills in the area, offering outstanding long range views. A year-round residence and a former Girl Scout lodge are situated at the end of Sky Acres Road. The house features four bedrooms and one bath. The lodge, roughly 3,500 square feet, has an open floor plan with a stone fireplace. One end of the lodge was formerly used as a kitchen. With renovation, this structure can be used for family gatherings, converted to an equestrian unit or sold with some acreage offering good retail value.
