An asking price has not been set for the Wethersfield Street property, as it will be determined as talks begin with the local towns on conservation and open space possibilities.
According to town records, the Rowley property is valued at $1,363,900.
Neither Brent Baeslack, Rowley’s conservation agent, nor Bob Snow, chairman of the Rowley Board of Selectmen, has been contacted by the Girl Scouts regarding the property, though Baeslack said he had heard the property was going to be put up for sale.
Baeslack said he has walked the 390 Wethersfield St. property before and that it includes some wetlands, as the Batchelder Brook runs through it, and some dry upland woods.
“Looking at it through an environmental lens, there would be a lot of hurdles to overcome for development,” he said. “Hopefully there are some opportunities there for protection and preservation.”
Both he and Snow said they were open to discussions with the Girl Scouts on the possible uses of the property by the town.
