Affordable Survival Home in Connecticut

                            A lot of people know that Idaho, or a state known for having a lot of forest and rural lands might be a better choice as a place for a survival home, but they are tied into the Northeast with friends, families and jobs. In addition, land can be very pricey in the northeast, as can property taxes. I wanted to post this for those of you in such a situation.

               This is 90, Sunset Ridge in Norfolk, Connecticut, 06058,  which is in Litchfield County.

This property is on 38 deeded acres, but should be resurveyed, as it could be slightly more or slightly less.

Three Bedroom, 1 Bath home on 38 acres. A diamond in the rough, this property is tucked away down a private drive yet within walking distance to the Norfolk Village center and the Norfolk Library, Infinity Hall, the Yale Estate as well as within walking distance to Norfolk’s ballfield and Toby Pond. Norfolk, CT, is located in the Litchfield Hills and close to the Berkshires, Appalachian Trail, Wassaic train station and the Farmington and Housatonic Rivers that boast wonderful fly fishing. It also has a Haystack Mountain view. There is also a detached garage.

 It is a current listing and is presently only $198,000. US

   This permits a family to have land, security and some gardening potential, while remaining in the Northeast near family, friends and familiar health care. 

     Please do your due diligence and check zoning laws to ensure that your plans for such a property are in keeping with the planning department of the township, county and state.  The property taxes are over five thousand dollars a year, which is quite typical for many homes in the area, even those without acreage.
