Gould Hill offers a unique 69±-acre forest situated in the city limits of Montpelier with mature timber, exceptional recreational connectivity, and a state wastewater permit in place for the construction of a single-family, three-bedroom residence. The property is situated along the easterly side of Gould Hill Road, directly abutting North Branch River Park to the south and East Montpelier Town Forest to the east. Vermont Land Trust holds a recreational trail easement that crosses the southeast corner of the property, providing access to an extensive trail network connecting Sparrow Farm all the way to Hubbard Park and the State Capital building. A multi-use recreational trail crosses the southwesterly corner of the property. A stream traverses the property paralleling Gould Hill Road, ultimately flowing into the North Branch of the Winooski River. Approximately 56 acres east of the stream are enrolled in Vermont's Use Value Appraisal tax abatement program, reducing taxes and leaving the 13 acres west of the stream unenrolled for potential development. A forest management plan was completed in August 2017 and serves as the basis for UVA enrollment through 2027. Zoned rural district, Wrightsville neighborhood, with two-acre minimum lot size. Extensive frontage and power along Gould Hill Road. Five-minute drive or 30-minute trail walk to the center of Montpelier.
