Wildlife Abounds, Cabin, Waterfalls, Wood/Fields, Dream Home


This highly desirable property is located in the township of Hamilton, approximately 1.5 miles from the village of Hamilton, which was recently named one of the Friendliest Towns in America by Forbes Magazine and the home to the nationally ranked liberal arts college of Colgate University. An abundance of wildlife, spectacular views of rolling hills, farmland, windmills, Colgate University and a beautiful private setting of a three-tier series of waterfalls with easy access. One hour from Syracuse and four hours from Manhattan, NYC. With this property, the new owner has so many options. Very private hunting/outdoor recreational retreat or build the private home you have been dreaming of, with multiple build sites available on approximately 2200+/- feet of road frontage. Electric is available at the road, provided by Hamilton Electric Co-op, a highly respected and sought-after service provider, offering an average residential rate 53.5% less than the New York State average rate and considerable savings to area homeowners. For the outdoor enthusiast, there is an authentically built 600 +/- square feet log cabin overlooking a year-round stream, offering a private camping escape or hunting lodge. Simply walk out the door to some of the best deer and turkey hunting in New York State. Multiple deer and turkey signs are found throughout the property, attracted by the fields, forage, acorns, and apple trees. The property offers a nice mix of hardwoods and 30 +/- acres of well-maintained agricultural fields, both of which offer an additional income opportunity through lease to local farmers or start your own farm/agribusiness with crops or pasture for livestock. Young timber stands on the land, including a variety of hardwoods, such as Oak which drop acorns attracting and holding deer nearby. Maple, Ash and Cherry trees are grouped together with a nice mix of Hemlock, all of which have mixtures of maturity levels, providing future timber opportunities. With the paths that wind through the trees, enjoy the easy-to-walk trails or ride an ATV to one of the unique features this property offers: the beautiful waterfall fed by a small stream and cascades down the hill through the property. The property has a great location near the village of Hamilton for amenities as well as area attractions and culture: renowned restaurants and breweries, shopping, culture and performing arts in Hamilton, Syracuse, Clinton/Utica and Cooperstown, outstanding fishing and boating in numerous lakes and rivers all well within an hour or less.
