There is a stream that runs along the west side of the property offering approx. 1098’ of frontage and ends in a large natural beaver pond, a very inviting spot for wildlife and waterfowl.

Located in this area of NYS dedicated for decades to wildlife conservation and management, in addition to the thousands of acres of the adjoining Pharsalia Woods State Forest, nearby open areas provides an attractive food source for whitetail, turkey and other small game on this property.
