This quality-built 2015 Contemporary Country Cape home is beautifully situated at the top of a long meandering driveway, offering the new owner incredible privacy upon a lovely knoll overlooking the property. The house provides 1397 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths, one on each floor, wood flooring in the main living area on the first floor, which features an open floor plan, wood stove for supplemental heat, and french doors to the covered porch. When including the partially finished basement, there is a total of 2261 square feet of living space. The large Master Suite is located upstairs with a walk-in closet and full bath. Two additional bedrooms are located in the finished full basement area, with extra large egress windows, providing lots of light into the rooms so that it's hard to tell you're located below ground level. A large 2-car detached garage, built in 2011, with a concrete floor and electric, features 2 extra tall garage doors with openers and ample room for vehicles and equipment. There is a 10'x30' 2 stall horse barn built in 2008 with included tack room, which also features a nice sized fenced-in paddock, and with fencing, updates could alternatively be used for small livestock, along with the additional small barns/sheds built in 2004 on the property. There is also a 6.5-acre tillable ag field, which is currently in hay but could be utilized for other farming pursuits. Wild apples dot the brushy pasture areas, along with approximately 80 acres of woods with mixed hardwoods, offering future timber resources. Trails run throughout the property providing access via ATV or horseback. There are two streams on the property providing water frontage on the property as well as a natural beaver pond. With the combination of woods, brush, open fields, ag land, wetlands and streams, the property is incredibly diverse and, when walked, showed heavy deer signs throughout, indicating the potential for excellent whitetail hunting. Camping, hiking, and snowmobiling, as well as additional hunting opportunities, are available at Exeter State Forest (1957 acres), located just 3.2 miles away, and Plainfield State Forest (1403 acres), which is 7.1 miles away, where the local snowmobile trails are maintained by the Exeter Trail Blazers. New owners also have their choice of outstanding fishing nearby on either Canadarago Lake, a 1917-acre lake, or Otsego Lake, 4046 acres of pristine water and the headwaters of the Susquehanna River,. Both lakes feature many species of freshwater fish including lake trout, walleye and perch as the most popular. The Glimmerglass State Park is only 22 miles away, and provides 593 acres of natural woodlands, hiking, camping and a beautiful public beach with picnic grounds. While this property is in a beautiful country setting, amenities, shopping, restaurants and entertainment are all available within a short drive. The town of West Winfield is 8 miles, Richfield Springs is 10 miles, and Cooperstown only 17 miles away to the southeast. Cooperstown is world renowned for its cultural and recreational attractions including the National Baseball Hall of Fame, Fenimore Art Museum, Farmers Museum, Brewery Ommegang, and Glimmerglass Theatre. Oneonta is 34 miles, Utica is 26 miles and Albany is 1 hour and 36 minutes away. NYC/George Washington Bridge is just under four hours from this property. Located in the Leatherstocking Region and a short drive from Cooperstown, this property offers so many opportunities for the new owner: year round home or vacation/hunting getaway, agricultural fields, pasture, stream/wetland areas with a natural beaver pond, and a prime location near two pristine lakes in an area steeped in beauty, history and folklore. *Additional acreage is available across the road as well. Property may be subject to Town Board subdivision approval.
