Beautiful location for a vacation getaway, hunting cabin, or home site, with a large 9.5-acre open meadow facing the main road and a secondary gravel road running along the one side of the property, providing easy access to the wooded interior. The property lies relatively flat, making it easy to navigate by foot or ATV. There is an old, former logging trail system that provides access throughout the property. Gorgeous original stonewalls line the borders providing a charming touch of the early settlers in this historic area of CNY. The majority of the property is heavily wooded, with a mix of hardwoods and softwoods, including hemlock and spruce. There is a considerable stand of harvest-ready timber, particularly some really nice cherry, which could provide an immediate return on investment income or could be utilized to help build new buildings on site. Well-planned timber harvests can substantially enhance the wildlife habitat and make the deer hunting even better, providing additional brush for cover, bedding and browse. A couple of nice active springs on the property feed into the small streams that were running through the property, adding to the overall diversity of the land and from which a new pond could potentially be built. There were wild apple trees sporadically located around the property, providing additional feed for wildlife. Whitetail were spotted when the property was walked recently and a lot of sign was noted including heavily used runs. The 9.5-acre open meadow offers several choice spots for deer stands, blinds and food plots. In addition, the fields could be used for pasture for horses or other livestock or converted to agricultural fields for hay or crop for a small farm operation. There was good cell service throughout. The Spring Valley Unit of the NYC Watershed Public Lands is 1.2 miles down the road and offers another 585 acres of prime hunting, trapping, fishing and hiking. Great fishing, canoeing and kayaking are available 12 miles away on the Susquehanna River, renowned for smallmouth bass, walleye and northern pike, among many other species in this area. More outstanding fishing options are nearby on either Otsego Lake, 4046 acres of pristine water, or Canadarago Lake, a 2000 acre lake and the headwaters of the Susquehanna River, with both featuring many species of freshwater fish, including lake trout, walleye and perch as the most popular. The Glimmerglass State Park provides 593 acres of natural woodlands, hiking, camping and a beautiful public beach with picnic grounds. While this property is in a beautiful country setting, amenities are available close by. Delhi is less than 10 minutes away and Oneonta is 20 minutes additional shopping and restaurants. Cooperstown is less than 45 minutes away and is world-renowned for its cultural and recreational attractions, including the National Baseball Hall of Fame, Fenimore Art Museum, Farmers Museum, Brewery Ommegang, and Glimmerglass Theatre.
