A trout stream runs through this privately-owned forested nature sanctuary, for sale for the first time since it was bought in the ’70s for recreation by a conservation-minded family. A mature hardwood forest with ancient white pines growing on the hillsides framing bottomland along South River. Old trails lead to a gathering spot by a spring and brook. Home to nesting Barred Owls and Broad-winged Hawks, Wood Thrush, beaver and deer. You might spot a yellow lady slipper or even the last remnants of the ancient chestnut forests that once covered eastern North America. It lacks enough frontage to be developable, so the family kept it for recreation and conservation purposes in ch61B status with low taxes. Several test wells near the west boundary were drilled and capped by the Town of Ashfield years ago during a search for a public water supply but were never developed. On county-maintained county road less than ½ a mile from the center of the picturesque village of Ashfield.
