An opportunity to own a Litchfield County estate property with over 1,300' of direct waterfront on tranquil undeveloped 242 acre Winchester Lake minutes from historic 18th Century Winchester Center. There are 104 acres in Norfolk and 23 acres in Winchester, with no permanent conservation easements. This property has been improved to a high degree, with a graveled .6 mile plus driveway, buried utility conduits , a bridge over a mountain stream, all leading to a beautiful building site overlooking Winchester Lake. The only thing remaining is to design and build the house of your dreams. This lake was dammed in the 1920's and is known for its dramatic setting, featuring rocky coves, abundant wildlife, excellent fishing, low density of houses, and excellent boating for small boats, canoes and kayaks. The house site is perfect to see the sunrise reflecting across the lake. As the lake is owned by the State of Conn, the majority of its lakefront is protected in its natural state and few, if any, docks are allowed. This land is surrounded by both private lands with conservation easements and State Forests and Parks such as Dennis Hill State Park, Paugnut and People's State Forest.
