This is a very special wooded property with some small clearing areas and offers the new owner so many choices in the legendary and historical Leatherstocking area of Central New York State. The property slopes upward from the road, where electricity is available at the year-round town-maintained paved road and provides an ideal location for a residential building lot, hunting camp, or vacation getaway cabin. This property, along with several of the neighboring property, has nearly 69 acres in a Conservation Easement with Otsego Land Trust, which protects the natural resources while still offering the new owner the right to build a residence, cabin, farm, take timber and/or operate a rural enterprise. There is a Building Lot envelope for a year-round residence already approved by the Trust and another off-grid cabin envelope on another designated area of the property. Former logging trails, built when the forest was carefully harvested 4-5 years ago, provide access on trails throughout the property. There is future timber potential within the Conservation Easement areas as well as on another 37 wooded acres, which is outside the Easement and contains a nice hemlock stand. The topography, land management practices and timber harvest has created ideal undergrowth providing outstanding deer and wildlife habitat. A gated driveway with a ROW leads up to a cell tower area owned by Otsego County. This private location is only minutes away (2.5 miles) from so many outstanding amenities in the Cooperstown and the surrounding regions, including the National Baseball Hall of Fame, Fenimore Art Museum, NYS Historical Society, Farmers Museum, Brewery Ommegang, Glimmerglass Opera, Cooperstown Dreams Park, as well as shopping, several area golf courses, and many choices of outstanding restaurants. Amazing fishing and watersports are available on the pristine Otsego Lake, a 4046-acre lake renowned for lake trout, walleye, perch and the Glimmerglass State Park with a public beach with picnic areas and 593 acres for hiking, camping, and in the winter ice skating and cross country skiing on its many trails. Own your own piece of this legendary area of New York State you can be proud to be a part of, most of which is under the protection of a Conservation Easement, surrounded by wildlife and natural beauty but only minutes away from renowned Cooperstown. Portions of this property are part of a larger parcel and may require Town subdivision approval. Additional acreage is also available.
