The Balestraâ€™s land is located in an area where there has been considerable residential development in the past 20 years (over 30 new homes). The City has identified the property as a priority for conservation because it contributes significantly to the rural character in this part of Lebanon. The property includes almost Â½ mile of frontage on a scenic road and provides expansive views to Lebanonâ€™s Signal Hill and beyond to Ascutney Mountain in Vermont.
