Land Description

Don't miss this wooded 75.6 Acre property within walking distance of the Thames River and Norwich Harbor. The rare acreage is tucked inside the inviting town of Norwich, halfway between Boston and New York. The gradually sloping hilltop offers views of the sparkling harbor and the red-brick buildings below.

Lush Landscape

The property features lush woodlands with two small pockets of wetlands. Ferns, leafy vines, and mature trees cover the property and offer beauty, variety, and protection against the elements.

There are a couple of walls loosely constructed from small boulders that could be moved with machinery to use elsewhere.

The town straddles a quaint Norwich Harbor dotted with yachts and boats, located at the head of the Thames River and mouth of the Yantic River, which feeds into the Long Island Sound just south of Norwich.

Quaint Town on the River

It's uncommon to find a developing town that's retained its charm and values, but New London County has done just that. Sprawling across southeastern Connecticut along the coast, New London has become a flourishing hub of innovation and opportunities, steeped in rich history and strong community. This coastal region leads in technology, manufacturing, the arts, and education.

There's plenty to do for every age and stage, yet enough natural space and historic allure to relax and enjoy life at a slower pace. Norwich is that film-worthy small town that people dream of finding.

Norwich's updated downtown looks like a nostalgic painting composed of historic limestone and red brick buildings, old city square clocks, and modern shops, perfect for an afternoon stroll or convenient errand running.

Norwich offers several grocers, a Walmart Supercenter, and the Hartford Health Care Backus Hospital, among other shopping, dining, and professional services.

Property Access & Electricity

Electricity lines and poles run along the eastern property boundary on Hinckley Street (a paved street that turns into a dirt path) and other roads around the property.

The highly accessible property's main access point is off Hinckley Street, with other roads around the property along the eastern, western, and northern boundaries. State Highway 2 and State Highway 12 are next to the property, and Interstate 395 is about 3.3 miles from the property.

Things to Do in Norwich

Norwich has a vibrant story to tell, and the town's beautiful museums are a favorite for locals and visitors alike. Explore the Slater Memorial Museum, Leffingwell House Museum, and the Senator Thomas J Dodd Memorial Stadium (attend a lively Norwich Sea Unicorns game while you're there).

Meanwhile, try your hand at sailing, kayaking, or paddle boarding along the quiet river. The Marina at American Wharf is just a stone's throw from the property. The full-service marina is a favorite haven for boaters because of its many amenities and proximity to the Mohegan Sun Casino & Foxwoods Resort Casino (also home to Camp Foxwoods, a fun family camp for all ages). Great Wolf Lodge will be opening early 2025.

Other Norwich attractions include a performing arts center, bowling and entertainment center, dog park, wineries and breweries, The Spa at Norwich Inn, Mohegan Park, and Yantic Falls.

Outdoor Recreation

About 16 minutes away, Pachaug Pond serves as a drainage basin for the Thames River. Unlike its name, the expansive watershed is the state's largest lake east of the Connecticut River and is surrounded by scenic woods, wetlands, beautiful homes, and 122 campsites. There's a marina and public boat launch. Cast a line for giant northern pike, crappie, and bass, or watch flocks of waterfowl fly in over the water. This beloved local lake is known for its year-round beauty and fun.

Accompanying the largest lake is the largest state forest. Pachaug State Forest spans over 26,000 acres and 6 towns. Nature enthusiasts can camp, hunt, hike, snowmobile, horseback ride, birdwatch, and forest bathe in the park's pristine beauty.

About 28 minutes away along the coast of the Long Island Sound, Bluff Point State Park & Coastal Preserve is the perfect sunny escape to enjoy sweeping vistas, hiking, mountain biking, and saltwater fishing for snapper, bluefish, striped bass, little tunny, and more. The nature preserve sits on an undeveloped peninsula between the Poquonnock River and Mumford Cove.

Longing for a beach day? Misquamicut State Beach in Westerly, RI, has miles of soft, white sandy beaches, perfect for summertime beachcombing.

In the fall, don't miss the leaf-peeping and stunning waterfalls while you hike and picnic at Devil's Hopyard State Park, known for its mysterious round holes beneath the falls.

Opportunities like this expansive acreage in the heart of a desirable waterfront town are hard to come by. This stunning wooded property overlooking the Thames invites you to call Norwich home. Secure your dream property today in New London County, Connecticut.
