Welcome to The Summit in Middlebury! A beautiful, small neighborhood just outside of the great little town of Middlebury with approximately 130 homes. Middlebury has a population of 3,575. The summit is a safe community with close by bike trails (the Pumpkin Vine) and beautiful Krider Gardens.
History of The Summit: The development process of the Summit started in 1999 by Segra Properties, LLC. Segra Properties purchased the land from Krider Tree Farm in 1994 and operated as a wholesale organic tree farm from 1994 to 1999. Krider Nursery Land Holdings had 27 members that had to sign the deed when this property was sold to Segra Properties. The land was the largest tract of ground owned by Krider Tree farm.
Segra Properties started the process of developing The Summit in 1999.
The first two familes to build in the Summit are still on the original properties. The owners of lot 5, 6 and 7 were the first to purchase lots, signing the agreement for Lot 6 on Christmas day 1998. They moved in October, 2000. The owners of Lots 1 and 2 were the first to build and moved in June 2000.
The Lot 6 owners have reminisced that they were wandering around unsurveyed property before Alverstone Dr. or Ranier Ct. had even begun excavation, using a tape measure and a compass to try to plot what they were buying.
In an effort to not destroy the trees in the farm most trees in the way of road construction were either moved or sold. In 2002 The Summit was the central site for The Parade of Homes with at least 6 homes from the Summit being in the parade.
