Let the amazing ride along the Delaware River on NYS 97 lead you and your family to your future property and possible home. Whether you are approaching from the north or the south, the property is split by NYS 97 with an old farmhouse sitting to the east and over 20 acres to the west above the Delaware River. Easy access to a level field area which could potentially be a spot for your future home. As you make your way towards the river and the beautiful views, across into Pennsylvania, the elevation significantly changes, dropping down to the property line that is just above the train tracks and approximately 100 yards from the river. Whether hunting, hiking, exploring, or a quiet picnic above the river with your family is what you are looking for, there are trails that make their way through this side of the property. The forest consists of a combination of hemlock, birch, white pine, and oak which provide a good food source for deer and other wildlife. The deer sign is not hard to find and deer were spotted on both sides of the road while walking the property. In addition to a stream, large moss-covered rocks and ledges make up some of the landscape and add structure and beauty to the hillside. Across the road sits a “Handy Man Special” 5 bedroom 2 bath farmhouse with a hand-dug well (never been used) and a septic. Electricity runs to the house. This house is being sold in “as Is” condition. The back of the house offers a large backyard with an old stone foundation where a barn had once stood. The remains of an old pond still exist just in the woods with the stream still running through it. Gradually gaining elevation as you work your way up through the woods, there are many options for hunting stand locations, and some hand-built box blinds in place. As the forest transitions from predominantly a blend of hemlock, oak, and birch, the landscape opens up to a series of hidden brush-hogged fields that weave their way across the top of the property These fields are bordered by both white and red oak commingled with white and black birch and white pines. These areas would provide a great spot to plant your own food plots. The younger oaks placed perfectly on the field edges work to your advantage for licking branches and scrape locations; not to mention the abundance of food the oaks can produce. There are other partial clearings and oak flats in a few spots as you head back toward the road. Trails on the property allow you to access the back of the property by ATV. There is also a natural spring located in the center about a third of the way up to the back edge. Whether your Gun Club is looking to purchase their next property, you're a do-it-yourselfer wanting to revive a home of the past, or you’re looking to start fresh and possibly build your new dream homestead with enough property to manage your own outdoor recreation paradise, this is a must-see for you. Whether you keep it all to yourself or possibly subdivide and sell one side to help pay for your investment, the choice is yours. The owner is willing to sell either side of NYS 97 on its own.
