Nature enthusiasts, artists, fisherman, campers and hikers have all frequented this beautiful 226.5 - acre former dairy farm in Preston, CT. It features rolling pastures surrounded by stone walls, two ponds and 50 acres of active hayfields gently sloping to Broad Brook which runs through the property. The property provides a tranquil setting with views to surrounding farmland. Half of the property has been permitted as an 18-hole golf course; nine holes have been roughed in, with three permitted bridges crossing Broad Brook. Approximately 250,000 yards of gravel and 10,000 yards of excess topsoil are on the property. The other half of the property includes a 2400 square foot colonial farmhouse built in 1792, a 2-story colonial barn, three garages, one with stables, 2 pole barns and 2 sheds. Subdivision is possible, including a ‘free split’. The owners have commissioned a conceptual design which depicts 42 building lots ranging between 1.5 to 15 acres, without the need to build a road, including a 25-acre lot surrounding the farmhouse and buildings. There are 3792 feet of frontage on high-traffic but scenic Rt. 164, 1730 feet on rural Krug Rd. and 2693 feet on rural Parks Rd. This scenic property is well-suited for an organic farm, horse property, golf course, campground or private getaway, or development of an upscale, tranquil community 15 minutes from the Sun and Foxwoods.
