A beautiful private location with a mix of open fields and woods, bordering 865 acres of Gee Brook State Forest, makes this an ideal property for any number of uses: small farm, hunting camp, or vacation getaway with plenty of room for large gatherings. There is an old farmhouse with an addition that looks like it could have been a schoolhouse back in the day, being sold “as is”, as it being habitable with renovation is questionable. In addition, there is a gambrel roof, a two-story dairy barn built c. 1940, with a 1970 one-story 38’ x 100’ addition both with a metal roof that appears in decent shape and offers many possibilities for use. There is an electric pole on the property for service as well as a well (see photo) and believed to be a septic.
The condition of both of those is unknown. The fields, which appear to be well-drained & mostly level or gentle rolling grades, could be brought back into active use by the new owner or leased out to area farmers for additional income. There was abundant whitetail deer and wild turkey sign when last walked. The diverse habitat provides an ideal location for browsing along the hedgerows, open fields, and woods for bedding and cover. Many good locations to strategically place tree stands and the property is easily accessible by foot or ATV. The woodlot is a mix of hardwoods, including maple, cherry, ash, and beech mostly, as well as softwoods. Wild apple trees spot the edges of the fields providing an additional food source for the deer, turkey, and other area wildlife. In fact, with the surrounding wooded areas, farms, and conservation-managed state lands, wildlife thrives in this region. For even more outdoor recreation beyond this base camp, the property is only 8 miles from another 2115 acres of NYS public lands with Hoxie Gorge State Forest, providing access to additional outdoor recreational activities such as hunting, fishing, hiking on the Finger Lakes Trail, camping and snowmobiling on miles of trails, part of the 5S Corridor Trail. The renowned Otselic River is literally a few miles down the road from this property and offers excellent fishing for Brown trout, brook trout, smallmouth bass, and walleye, among other species. Winter sports in this area include snowmobiling on the many state & local trail systems nearby as well as downhill skiing & snowboarding in the winter at the Greek Peak Mountain Resort only 15 miles away, while in the summer zip-lining, Sky Tours & mountain coaster rides are available as well. In addition, Dorchester Park and the Whitney Point Reservoir are 14 miles away and offer a 1200-acre lake renowned for walleye, bass, perch, and crappie fishing, a public beach, and picnic areas, and a boat launch.
