Bloomfield agricultural/industrial property sold to West Hartford remodeling company 

Contributed 12 Burr Road, Bloomfield

 A Bloomfield property formerly used as a dairy farm, has been sold to an area construction and remodeling company.

Maple Hill Farms sold the 9.6-acre property at 12 Burr Road to West Hartford-based Tace Ventures, and principal Andrew Liljedahl for $700,000 in a deal recorded June 3.

Liljedahl is co-owner of Liljedahl Bros. Inc., a remodeling company that serves the Greater Hartford and Farmington Valley areas specializing in custom additions, kitchen and bath remodeling, and all residential and light commercial construction.

Liljedahl could not be reached for comment.

Christopher Duclos, director of brokerage for Harford real estate firm Sentry Commercial, who represented the seller in the deal, said Maple Hill Farms was a dairy farm that stopped producing milk and ice cream and had more recently been leasing space to various businesses, including Frisbies Dairy Barn, a bakery, and a flower distributor.

The property offered a variety of uses, as it had been an agricultural site, with 18,900 square feet of industrial space in a residential zone. The property, built in 1961 and renovated in 2005, garnered a variety of proposed ideas from prospective buyers, Duclos said, including residential, mixed-use, trucking and industrial.

According to the company website, Liljedahl Bros. was founded in 1933 by four brothers who emigrated from Sweden, and is now run by Andrew “Drew” and Russell Liljedahl, great grandson and grandson of the original owners. The company employs skilled carpenters, apprentices, and subcontractors.
