Stunning building site on 26.68 acres located in the center of Redding. Gorgeous approach leads to lot offering distance views & total privacy. The original house was demolished with town approval and further clearing of the lot has been completed. Survey and topography maps are available, along w/the site, 8-bedroom septic, & drainage plans. Existing septic is capped for potential future use for pool or guest house. The property qualifies for forestry designation which significantly reduces the property taxes. The property is similar to the land Mark Twain purchased in 1908 ~ elevated and overlooking acres of untouched natural beauty. Redding hasn't changed much since then ~ a small town focused on enjoying the outdoors with hundreds of miles of hiking trails, kayaking in Huntington State Park, swimming at Topstone Park, or wandering around lovely New Pond Farm. The iconic Mark Twain Library, started by the man himself, is the center of many town events inc the Pudd'nhead Festival, juried art show & countless classes for all ages. Small-scale, award-winning schools; family-owned farm stands; two breweries & the Umpawaug Winery; Concerts on the Green; the summer music festival at Lonetown Barn...and, best of all, a laidback 'stop and smell the roses' lifestyle make Redding stand out from the rest of the towns bordering NY. Two Metro-North stations, 25 min to Westport beaches, and less than 10 min to shopping, entertainment & countless restaurants. 53 miles to NYC.
