This high-elevation lot in the shadow of Camel’s Hump offers secluded building options with emergent views close Waterbury, Stowe and Montpelier, Vermont. The property is just 6 miles from the Exit 10 interchange on Interstate 89 in Waterbury. From here, it is a 3 hour trip southeast to Boston or 6 hours southwest to New York City. The parcel has frontage on a private, gated section of Devlin Road, from which a driveway can easily be constructed.
The parcel sits at about 2,000’ elevation on the upper slopes of Crossett Hill, a large north-south ridge just east of Camel’s Hump. A smaller ridge jutting east off Crossett Hill into the property provides elevated and flatter terrain. Here, with tree clearing, there can be sweeping views from the northeast across the eastern horizon and the rolling Vermont hills to the southeast towards the Sugarbush Valley. This would make a stunning, top-of-the-world site for a residence. Northern hardwood forests, with some spruce-fir and hemlock, covers the lot. Some trees, notably red spruce and yellow birch, are quite large, with diameters near or in excess of two feet. Occasional rocky outcrops or boulders vary the landscape. Seasonal streams, the headwaters of local brooks, course through the properties. Up here, black bear, coyote and moose are likely to wander through from time to time.
