LITCHFIELD HILLS SECLUDED 15+/- ACRE RESERVOIR fed by the pure headwaters of the Bantam River and natural springs. Formerly owned by the Litchfield Water Company, this deep cold trout pond once supplied the town of Litchfield, CT with its drinking water. Today it is privately owned and surrounded by almost 300 acres of surveyed forest land in Northwest Connecticut's Litchfield Hills. With its approximately 2,000' shore line, the reservoir provides numerous possibilities for multiple home sites, a grand estate or other uses allowed by zoning. The Bantam River gently cascades from the earthen dam spillway providing a series of mini waterfalls and the unique sounds of falling water. A gravel drive extends into the property from the end of Reservoir Rd allowing easy vehicular access to the interior along with the means to extend electric power. Another means of ingress/egress is from Pie Hill Rd on the North boundary. Conservation land (131 acres) and Ivy Mountain Brook border a substantial portion of the 2,000' Easterly boundary affording excellent trout fishing as well. New York City 2 hrs, Bradley International Airport 1 hr, Boston 2-1/4 hrs, Tanglewood 45 min, Music Mountain 15 min.
