PRICE REDUCED! Pristine undeveloped island located in the Oswego River with easy access. Yes, you read that right, it's an island... and it can be yours! Big Island is an easily accessible outdoor enthusiast's paradise. Completely undeveloped the oval-shaped island features a gentle knoll and is covered with sky-reaching mature trees. Sitting at approximately 360-feet above sea level this unique piece of real estate resides above the FEMA flood plain and the river's 100-year flood zone. The Oswego River is part of the NYS Canal System, which connects with the Hudson River to the south and Lake Ontario to the North and the Finger Lakes and Lake Erie to the west. Easily accessed from one of the area's, marinas or the county-maintained Apple Landing public boat launch just a few hundred yards from the island's tranquil shores. Small craft can be landed at many locations around the island but the best site is a small beach area located on the islands south side. The Island is subdivided into four roughly equal lots of just over 2.5-acres, each of which have an individual, Oswego County-approved design for a septic system. Each lot features approximately 600 feet of river frontage. The main channel of the river runs along the eastern shore and will accommodate vessels both large and small. The frontage to the west faces a high-end housing community with a series of luxury homes on the river's edge. The Fulton area is easily accessible, while the amenities and creature comforts of Oswego are less than 15 minutes away. The city centers of Syracuse, Buffalo, Rochester and Albany are all within easy driving distance while New York City sits approximately 5 hours away. The island is an ideal location for a secluded home near the water's edge, a camp, series of cabins you name it. Areas surrounding the island produce excellent fishing and waterfowl hunting. Deer occasionally swim the river to take refuge on its shores but deer are not there 100% of the time. The timber is comprised of a mix of enormous old grown trees with interspersed stands of successional growth. An established path rings the island's edge and offers an excellent hike among the tranquil shores. Several potential building sites exist, while the four lots offer the opportunity for subdivision or multiple owners. A true must see for the interested buyer.
