This wooded 12-acre lot is on one of Andover's prettiest roads and within just a few minute's drive to the villages of Weston for summer theater, Ludlow for restaurants, shopping and skiing at Okemo, or Chester for fun and dining. The land rises gently to the northeast and there are numerous building sites and even the possibility of a sizable pond. The VAST trail crosses Dorman Road about 0.2 mile away and provides access to snowmobiling and hiking trails. An outdated town-issued wastewater permit indicates suitability for building a three-bedroom house, but State wastewater permitting will need to be completed prior to building.
