CHESHIRE — Are you looking for a property to bring your farming dreams to life, but in style? Hickory Hill Orchards may check off all your boxes to make that happen.
The 33-acre property located at 351 S. Meriden Road in Cheshire includes a 4,143-square-foot farmhouse in addition to orchards and woodlands. The home offers an office, gym, plenty of patio space, acres of apple and other fruit trees and a horse barn.
The property has been on the market for about 120 days and is going for $3.5 million. The yearly taxes for the property are $11,501.
Built in 1981, the house features four bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths. An en-suite bathroom, hot tub, walk-in closet, office, and gym can be found as well as a primary bedroom.
The large kitchen encompasses white cabinets and countertops, an island that seats two and stainless steel appliances.
Enjoy an open living space with large windows letting in lots of natural light and framing panoramic views of the idyllic scenery.
The patios provide plenty of entertaining space and a view of a tranquil pond. The property also comes with a separate four horse barn, horse ring and riding trails that wind through the surrounding woods.
Hickory Hill Orchards’ on-farm store, operated with the same owner for over 45 years, has long been a community favorite. The farm sold its fruit to customers such as Whole Foods and Stop & Shop and offered the first public apple picking in Connecticut along with fall hayrides long ago.
Due to its landscape and excellent facilities including hundreds of parking spots, the property often hosted large events. With a vision and a plan, Hickory Hill Orchards could be further developed into smaller properties with shared access to the farm’s resources.
You can find a golf course, health club, lake, public pool, private schools, library, park, and playground/tot lot near the property.
