Located in the heart of the famous Leatherstocking Region of NYS, this is a prime location for hunting whitetail, wild turkey, and grouse or used as a beautiful wildlife preserve in an area renowned for wildlife conservation. There is a nice road leading into the middle section of the property, where there is an old barn and level areas ideal for a camp or home. Below the barn is a wild apple orchard, along with the surrounding diverse topography of open meadows, brushy growth, and two ravines, each with its own stream and woodland; the property offers ideal habitat for the area wildlife. Carefully and selectively logged 4-5 years ago, multiple trails were created, providing easy access throughout the property. Future timber income potential is offered with the mixed hardwoods, including oak, maple, ash, and beech, along with red pine and hemlock. The last timber harvest resulted in the undergrowth, creating excellent habitat for deer and wildlife. There are other locations for potential building areas along the road, where there are two older sheds overlooking the ravine closest to the road and which could be used for storage or converted into rustic camps. There was ample deer and turkey sign when recently walked. Several other good places for food plots and tree stands are in strategic locations, along with the open areas and trails through the property. With multiple benches and a nice ridge running at the top of the property, the topography provides excellent spots for hunting, as whitetail deer and wild turkey traverse this area, living in the surrounding woods and brushy cover. This private location is only minutes away (2.5 miles) from so many outstanding amenities in the Cooperstown and surrounding areas, 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.
