NEW RENOVATIONS make this gorgeous, income producing property worth a look!! Most recently, Hawk's View" has been a family oriented vacation getaway less than a 15 minute drive to Cooperstown or the Cooperstown Dreams Park, providing a substantial income of ~$4000/week seasonally. Located on a gentle knoll, this remodeled two story, 3400 square foot farmhouse has commanding views of the valley and rolling hills of the Leatherstocking Region of James Fenimore Cooper fame. Tastefully updated, this early farmhouse has been modernized and offers a spacious contemporary kitchen, extra large dining room, living room and den. There are 6-7 bedrooms, which can accommodate up to 15 adults, and 3 full baths - all with Central A/C and fireplace for added comfort depending on the season. RECENT UPDATES include all NEW fiberglass insulation in the attic and extra floor joists added throughout the entire 1800 era basement reinforcing the entire structure. Plenty of outdoor entertaining space is provided with a covered porch on the front of the house, as well as a wrap-around, multi-level deck and a patio with a large fire pit for relaxing get-togethers around the campfire with family and friends, soaking in the beauty of this natural setting and bucolic views. Internet is available and the property has excellent cell service. There is ample outdoor parking, as well as an oversized 2 car detached garage built in 1980, which offers additional room for a workshop and storage. Behind the house, agricultural fields follow a gentle slope up the hill, where a local farmer currently leases the fields on an annual basis for grazing cattle using temporary fencing. This area could easily be converted for horses, with ample pasture and hay fields. Beyond the fields are another ~58 acres of woodlot. Modestly logged a few years ago, there is still a lot of nice young timber in these woods, which includes a variety of hardwoods and softwoods, with future income potential. This location is well known for excellent hunting for trophy bucks and wild turkey, and this property, with its diverse habitat, would also make an outstanding hunting camp. There are several good places for food plots and tree stands in strategic locations between the fields and trails through the property. A nice ridge runs at the top of the property and provides an excellent spot for hunting, as whitetail deer and wild turkey traverse this area, living in the surrounding woods and brushy cover. Former logging trails provide easy accessibility to the back of the property. Multiple locations of last year's rubs and scrapes provided evidence of deer sign in this area renowned for excellent hunting. And an additional 801 acres of hunting land is only 2 miles down the road at Hooker Mountain State Forest. This private location is only minutes away 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. Amazing fishing and watersports are available on the pristine Otsego Lake, a 4046 acre lake, renown 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. This is a very special property and offers the new owner so many choices: a large family private home or get-away, solid income potential as a rental so close to Cooperstown and baseball venues, a hunting camp with additional 800 acres of NYS Land 2 miles away or small farm.
