Ultimate Catskill Wildlife Retreat w Off-Grid Cabin and Pond


Don’t miss this exceptional opportunity to own your own piece of Plattekill Mountain. This unique large parcel is located at the end of Crescent Valley Road, Bovina and becomes a NYS DEC maintained single lane road up to the property’s border. A second access point is from Roses Brook Road, on the opposite side of the property. The eastern side of the property borders 1761 acres of the Plattekill State Forest, maximizing your privacy and providing a truly secluded wildlife retreat. Continuing another ~740’ up the driveway from the entrance to the property, there is a off-grid cabin built in 2019, approx. 24’x34’, one room with a loft, which comfortably sleeps 6, and is wired for electric from a generator. There is an approx. 10’x20’ older storage building with attached shed for storing equipment, work area, or convert to additional sleeping quarters. There was also excellent cell service. There is a really nice trail system that was cleared and re-graded which can be used for hiking or ATV’s, criss-crossing the property and  providing easy access throughout. Optimal undergrowth areas in many areas are ideal for whitetail, turkey, grouse and small game habitat. There are a lot of berry bushes which attract and feed the wildlife. Deer sign, turkey and grouse were evident throughout - all varieties of small game would be found on this type of land. Various locations around the property which are opened up offer amazing views of the Catskill Mountains and specifically the Narrow Notch Valley. With the privacy this property offers, trail system and open areas, there are many options to set up a shooting range, food plots, strategically place tree and tower stands as well as ground blinds on the slope area as well as numerous plateaus and benches throughout. Considering the size and remoteness of the surrounding mountains and state forest lands, the location of this property allows bucks to mature and get big. This property is in the 4P Wildlife Management Unit - one of the first units to enter the Antler Restriction in 2011, resulting in those larger trophy bucks. Ag type land at the base of the property with open meadows provide an area where deer will migrate through this property to the open land below, crossing back and forth across this property from bedding and browsing forbes to open fields. There is a pond on the property as well as a stream running through the north west quadrant, both of which provide water for game on the property without leaving. Pristine wilderness continues as this property borders the Plattekill State Forest with its additional 1761 acres, offering additional hunting, hiking, camping fishing and snowmobiling opportunities. It's like having your own 2000 acre preserve and paying the low taxes only on the 155 acres. Just over a half mile southeast from the property border into the state lands and you will reach the headwaters of the Little Delaware River. A public fishing access point on this river is just approx. 2 miles down the road from the property entrance and offers fishing for Brook and Brown trout. In addition, for the winter sports enthusiast, the approx. 13 mile NYS maintained S71 Trail System runs for approx. 2554’ along the border of this property and connects to the C2B & C2A trails nearby and leads to miles of trails throughout this region of the Catskills. Plattekill Mountain with skiing, snowboarding, snowtubing and summer events at the lodge is located less than a half hour away. Though remote and private, the location is still close to amenities nearby in Bovina, only approx.  2.5 miles, and 15 miles to Delhi. With this exceptional property, you can choose your adventure from your own incredible private retreat within the Catskill Moutains, renowned for some of the best attractions for outdoor recreation, farmers markets, arts & culture and history in all of New York - all of this only approx. 2.5 hours from NYC.
