In addition to the well maintained and renovated home, barn, and grounds, more than 90% of the 184.75 property has been protected from development or subdivision. A conservation restriction protects 97.75 acres, held by the White Oak Land Conservation Society. A second watershed preservation restriction, held by the City of Worcester, protects an additional 74.45 acres. A 20' wide hiking trail easement was granted to the Greater Worcester Land Trust. The forest land has been professionally managed for almost 40 years. A current certified forest management plan (FMP) governs sustainable extraction of timber off of the property. There is substantial timber value on the property some of which is ready for harvest. The property abuts thousands of additional acres of protected land in Holden and surrounding towns. 11 acres around the buildings and pond are unrestricted. Beautiful gardens & fruit trees add to the landscaping around the buildings. A dry fire hydrant is on the property.
