Newport Road, New London

In 1991, the owners of the "Kentlands" Boathouse property, Mrs. Bessie Phillips, and the Denny Beach Realty Trust helped protect the scenic shoreline of Little Lake Sunapee by donating a conservation easement to Ausbon Sargent. This is an excellent example of several landowners working together to protect contiguous lands. This cooperative effort protected a total of 9.35 acres over the three properties, which includes 1,650 feet of shoreline. Protecting "gateway" properties is consistent with New London's Master Plan, which emphasizes that "main roads leading to town are critically important to the visual quality of the Town" so this easement is doubly valuable because it also includes approximately 1,450 feet of road frontage along Newport Road.

The 1.4-acre Kentlands property is primarily forest land and will remain one property, not to be subdivided. The New London Conservation Commission holds an executory interest in this conservation easement.
