With nearly a century in the same family, this land has been loved and cared for, with an eye toward sustaining that stewardship well into the future. Made up of three parcels in Norfolk and New Marlborough, MA, there is an abundance of resources and possibilities here. Approximately 70 acres of fields and meadows, 200 acres of mixed hardwoods, a stretch of Ginger Creek running through the property on its way to Campbell Falls, access to high ground and potential building sites with timeless views from the old Wheeler Road – there is so much to consider and enjoy. In an area where outdoor recreation and land conservation are important to many, you can count Cookson State Forest and Campbell Falls State Park among your neighbors. A carefully restored 4-bedroom farmhouse, 5 garage bays, and barns are included on the property. You are 5 minutes from Norfolk, with Infinity Theatre and the Yale Summer Music programs, and a short drive north for all of the cultural opportunities that the Berkshires have to offer.
What’s the most compelling thing about this property?
The timeless setting. As you walk the fields and trails or head down to Ginger Creek, there is a quiet sense of continuity to the land and your surroundings.
For whom is this house perfect?
There are so many possibilities – a few might be someone looking for four seasons of recreation, a resident farmer, or a buyer who wants a private site to build that one of a kind home.
What’s the most fun thing to do within five miles of this house?
Hiking or cross country skiing your own land, cooling off at Campbell Falls, relaxing in the cafe at the Southfield Store, enjoying a performance at the Xfinity Theatre or the Yale Summer Music School, just to name a few.
If this house could talk, what secret would it tell about its history?
In the same family for nearly a century, and run as a dairy farm for many decades, the secret of this property is no secret at all – hard work and a caring stewardship of the land.
