Lot 5-111, East Washington Rd.
A beautiful 5.4-acre lot with 80 ft. of frontage on Loon Pond, with potential for subdivision.
If you've been looking for a special place to build your dream home, this 5.4 acre lot overlooking Loon Pond in Hillsborough will put your search to an end. There's just so much personality in this parcel:
700 feet of frontage with level access on E. Washington Road...
...a large, relatively flat expanse that provides a generous building envelope with an approved 5-bedroom septic design...
...a bit of a vista over the pond...
...a craggy drop-off and boulders that a nineteeth-century poet would have called "sublime" and the adventurous will call their playground (you even get your own little cave!)...
...and a gentle slope down to your very own 80-feet of frontage on the pond.
Looking straight into the lot from the road:
Looking south, with stone wall along the road:
The northern part of the lot is broad and level, so you'll have plenty of room for a grand footprint if you so choose (a 5-bedroom septic design has been prepared), or keep it modest and maintain more picturesque forest around the house.
As you approach the pond the topography drops dramatically, so if you cleared some trees (within regulations) in this area you'd have a bit of a view across the pond. Imagine sitting on your deck, reveling in the stars overhead or listening to the wind in the trees...
The extent of that drop-off is hard to judge in these photos, but it's pretty steep in places, resulting in a dramatic landscape with steep ledges and boulders scattered here and there. You even get your own little cave!
A little cave hang-out!
The southern part of the lot slopes gently down to the 80 feet of frontage on the pond. Loon Pond covers 154 acres, and since motorized watercraft are prohibited, you can push your kayak from shore and enjoy the peace and tranquility of Mother Nature's whispers.
There is a small right-of-way that crosses the section of the lot at the pond for the benefit of the neigbhorring lot.
Yes, you can keep the whole lot as your private domain, but a conceptual subdivision plan has also been prepared so you may be able to build a wonderful home for yourself and offer a second lot to a friend (pending approval, of course).
The area is dotted with historic farms and lovely homes; Fox State Forest, a 1,445-acre recreation area is just up the road; and you have easy access to Route 202 east to Concord or west to Keene.
With inventory so low, why settle for a home you'll want to update? Bring your dreams and plans to this lot and truly create that "forever" home for yourself!
