Gentlemen's working farm on 10 acres in Newtown, CT will become available for rent or sale later this year. This is a great entrepreneur's opportunity, in case you are leaving the city or looking to relocate. Newtown is still within 2hrs of NYC and has one of the best schools in the country, without having the high taxes of Westchester County.
I was a professional athlete when I left NYC and purchased this property. After 20 years I am moving on, and the property will become available later on this year, either for rent or sale if the price is right.
Property consists of 2600sq.f farm cape house with 10 rooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 car garage. 50x50 foot barn with 5 stalls, 3 walk ins, tack room , loft tack room, and entire loft upstairs for hay storage etc. RV carport and a very nice Art Shack, large deck with nice overview of the property, and some other utility outbuildings.
The real value of the property is that it is is a working farm. You can have horses or other animals here. Next to the barn are 2 fenced pastures and vegetable garden. There are many evergreen trees planted all around the property as I still sell those to local nurseries and customers. In last few years we started growing shiitake and oyster mushrooms, in logs variously positioned around the property. There is a nice size pond in the middle of the property which is a part of a running brook through the property. Any nursery owner will tell you water is the main necessity to have a successful farm business. In my 20 years here the pond never dried up ! The property is also on the NBLA horse trail system. Property also have lots of resources needed for successful farm business, such as many thousands of cubic yards of topsoil, composted wood chips, mulch, firewood for heating etc. I estimate there is about 30k cubic yards of composted chips turned into beautiful farm soil, which in today's market at $25-30 per cubic yard is worth around $750-900k
This property needs someone who is eager to do this kind of work and has the love for farming and animals. It is also a great investment as larger parcels of land are getting harder and harder to find in Fairfield County. It is a great homestead. The house is well build in the 1950s. Property will be available to show by appointment only, please only serious inquiries, craft your emails well as all the "is it still available " or other wage emails will be ignored. Asking price is $1.5M , but all serious close offers will be considered! Rent 5k/month
