Unique Property With 5 Separate Parcels & Gently Rolling Hills

Description

This unique property that is made up of 5 separate parcels has it all. The home site is set forward on the property leaving all of it usable for your outdoor pursuits. The thick wooded bottom land provides cover and sanctuary to the wildlife in the front. Gently rolling hills along the back of the property have mature oaks and maples. The hills would provide fantastic stand sites with 360degree views of the terrain. With some light clearing, food plots could easily be established on some very nice level areas in the two rear corners of the property. Your approach to the stands is from the east, which is ideal due to the prevailing westerly winds in the area. The middle of the property was lightly/ selectively logged approximately 20 years ago and some logging trails remain to explore on your ATV. The steep hillside that rises up out of the valley to the 1000 ft lookout makes a fantastic natural funnel to bring the deer right to your stand sites. The lookout is the site of an old US Forest Service fire tower built in 1936. All that remains of the fire tower is the footings which could easily be reused to build an off the grid cabin or a gazebo to enjoy the absolutely breathtaking views for miles of the lower Hudson Valley and foothills of the Shawangunk Mountains. The mountain top is covered in chestnut oak, red oaks, a few scotch pines, blueberry bushes and other fauna making it an excellent example of the Hudson Highlands terrain. There is an access road suitable for ATVs or a jeep coming up directly from South Shore Rd to reach the mountain top, it continues to other parts of the mountain then heads down the other side of the muntain back to the lake. With some more maintenance it could possibly accommondate larger vehicles. Get your head out of the clouds and come down off the mountain top to your lakefront parcel. Enjoy all the 22 acre lake has to offer. The lake has large mouth bass, perch and chain pickerel allowing you to fish until your heart is content. This unique property checks off all the boxes, seclusion if you choose, yet only minutes away from all that Middletown has to offer. Schools are less than one mile from your home. It is only a 2.5 mile drive to the heart of Middletown.  Amenities include Orange County fairgrounds and raceway, Stewart International Airport, Orange County airport, Randal airport, Stewart State forest with abounding waterfowling opportunities, trout fishing on the Wallkill River, approx. 30 minute drive to go rafting on the Delaware River, hot air balloon rides, the Paramount Theater, hang gliding, multiple shopping centers, nearby Shawangunk Wine Trail, three breweries, many different restaurants from high end to family style with any kind of ethnic cuisine you want to explore, two colleges, miles of town hiking trails and lakes, Soon’s Apple Orchard, Wallkill Golf Club, West Hills Golf Club, Stoney Ford Golf Course, multiple horseback riding facilities, Highland Lakes State Park, and Bashakill Vineyards.
