View to the south. Homesite ready to go. Later, the tall trees were cut to enhance the view. 






  4 1/2 acres of a park-like, all approved, residential building lot.

  Long views.  Level, large open homesite with deep soils.  Woods perimeter for privacy.

  Plenty of acreage for pool and any style house.

  Can be a horse property, a hobby farm or your home business. Plenty of room for out buildings.

  Additional acreage available. (The 700' long shared driveway meanders up 32 Flirtation Avenue to access 26 Flirtation Avenue.

   32 Flirtation Avenue was purchased from us in 2009 as an investment and is available to make 8 1/2 acres of property, if you choose.)

  Great soils for vegetable and flower gardens and orchard or vineyard-- your own mini farm!

  Room for your horses if you choose.

  Newly paved driveway built with exceptional drainage.  Survey stamped. 

  Guaranteed no blasting. Tree cleared with all stumps removed offsite. None buried.

  A 4 bedroom septic system was professionally designed, approved and septic trenches are installed.

  Private, yet walk to New Preston shops, restaurants and Lake Waramaug beach.

  As a resident, you will have boating (boat launch) and beach privileges.

  Town Maintained Road: Flirtation Avenue (named so in the 1920's) was chip sealed new in the summer of 2013.

  Quality AND great value!  





The flexible house location is ribboned off.  House and out buildings can be here or up front on this spacious lot.

Many trees on the left were recently cut, opening up the view even more.



A marvelous paved driveway was built to all town standards, shown in the following October pictures.

Here is the start of the driveway at paved town road Flirtation Avenue to the hilltop site. The first 50 feet is at 9.8% grade.



The driveway intersection with Flirtation Avenue upon construction completion a few years ago.

Now fully vegetated with mowed shoulder. 

Professionally built driveway / laneway (not steeper than 15% grade anywhere) will serve only two new homes.


Here are the two turns, widened so that large trucks can drive up or down this safe and easily traveled driveway.

It has  exceptional drainage, and geotextile beneath all O & G processed stone and asphalt.



Grade flattens out to new home site just past the asphalt.  Plenty of room for pickup truck snow plows to push snow aside.

Almost no leaf raking is required, because trees were kept away from pavement. 

Future maintenance is to mow the shoulder every few weeks if you like.



End of pavement.  Easily extend it to the new garage site.



Garage on left at first floor level, and walkout basement on right if you desire.







Here are the two lots with 10' contours:   Blueprint site plans can be immediately mailed to you at your request.

Detailed 2' contours with grading plan is shown below. All surveying and engineering mapping is complete.

All approvals are in the Town of Washington records.  Ideal for walkout basement with lots of sunny windows.

Solar panels are conducive to the south or southwest facing roof top, with the trees already cleared and ideal elevation.

A geothermal heat and air conditioning loop will be designed free of charge once a house is selected.

The deep soils with no ledge rock are well suited to efficient heating and cooling energy transfer.

Peter Tavino PE is a certified ground source heat pump system installer by the IGSHPA and a U. S. Green Building Council LEED AP.

 Everything is ready for your house plan, especially your energy efficient, and sustainable house plan.

Here is a feasible plan for a home, pool and outbuilding - - approved to build now or in the future.



This lot can accommodate any style and size home you wish.

Here are some ideas.

The garage could be on the left for single story living.

Peter Tavino PE has had a similar BluHome site plan approved by the Town of Washington built on another nearby lot.


 Note how a house with enormous width can fit easily onto the property, with plenty of level land around it.


    We can build to suit through Country Classic Homes,

    which has worked with us in the past.


    For a house up top enjoying the views,

    perhaps something like this.


Here is the installed 4 bedroom septic system, awaiting the < $1000 septic tank to be placed,

once you choose the house location and orientation.
