Property Description

Morrill Hill Forest is a multiple use tract located in the small rural town of Henniker, less than 20 miles west of Concord, New Hampshire and about the 32 miles north of Manchester, New Hampshire. Given its location, established driveway and clearing, the property is best-suited as a large residential lot with ample backland for recreational and woodlot management.

The parcel is located in the southwest corner of Henniker, NH, a small but vibrant town of about 5,000, home to New England College and Pat's Peak Ski Area. The town's local economy offers significant employment; although many residents also commute to Concord or Manchester, both cities within a 20 to 30- minute drive.

Locally, the parcel is situated on a hill with a westerly aspect overlooking the Contoocook River. Western Avenue provides convenient access to town just a few miles away. Routes 202 and 9 are also just minutes away.

The parcel enjoys 625 feet of frontage on Western Avenue, a paved municipal road with power and utilities. This road travels east/west and connects the villages of Henniker and Hillsborough where the road name changes to Contoocook Falls Road. An ample driveway, about 800' in length, leads into a small clearing that could provide a good location for a home.

The parcel offers moderately sloping topography with a west/southwest aspect. Soils are predominantly well-drained.

The sloping terrain is rocky in places but poses no difficulty for recreational trails and continued woodlot management. Existing trails created during the last timber harvest could use some brushing out.

A residential building opportunity is readily apparent in the small clearing at the end of the driveway.

The soothing sound of the Contoocook River rushing over the rocks can be heard from the clearing, especially in the spring and fall during the high water seasons.
