Cobb Brook Forest

Charlie Smith Road, Huntington, Vermont 05462 - Chittenden County
$1,335,000 890 Acres
Property ID 2724129

Description

Cobb Brook Forest covers a significant footprint in the Green Mountain foothills and benefits from a meaningful level of standing timber value towards the propertys asking price, a scenic landscape set high above the Huntington River Valley, adjacent acres of state lands and end-of-the-road privacy. Located high on a plateau just outside Huntington Center, the property is about 25 miles from Burlington, Vermonts largest city, and 12 miles from the Richmond interchange on I-89. Mad River Glen Ski Resort is roughly 12 miles to the southeast, while Stowe Mountain Resort is just under an hour to the north.

The property is defined by several distinct geographical features, most notably its high plateau location wedged tightly between the Huntington River Valley to the west and several well-known mountain peaks to the east. In addition, the northern boundary runs along Cobb Brook, while the southern boundary is defined by Jones Brook. Huntington Gap Wildlife Management Area, providing access to the adjacent Camels Hump State Park, runs along the entire eastern boundary. The center of the property covers mostly gentle terrain where recently harvested softwood plantations are regenerating to natural hardwoods. This easily-accessed, level terrain supports many potential prime house sites that offer outstanding views of the Green Mountains to the east. The western portion of the property includes an unnamed knoll, while most of the eastern section of the land rises from west to east at a moderate slope.

The property has been managed for decades as a traditional working forest. The current Capital Timber Value (CTV) accounts for half of the purchase price, with the balance realistically covering the bare land value held by the propertys multiple-use opportunities. The forests upland terrain has resulted in a timber resource dominated by northern hardwoods. The maples are the major species, followed by yellow birch and spruce/fir. Since 2010, silvicultural activity focused primarily on harvest of mature softwood plantations and regeneration cuts in stands near the main access road. As a result, this forestry activity is quite visible as one drives the road. The large majority of the stands/acreage have not been treated within the last 10 years, so volumes are high and aesthetics are quite good for recreational pursuits.
