Located approximately 15 minutes from Ithaca this inspiring property is a nature lover’s paradise featuring a small pond, flowing creek, log roads, potential build sites, a ravine, and a diverse woodlot that borders state lands! Conveniently located off Rt 96B this moderately-sized recreational tract is studded with a mix of maple, hemlock, oak, white pine, and other hard and softwood tree species that offers significant bio-diversity as it transitions from the brushy lowland glade to the recently-logged wooded hillside. A significant series of logging roads provide excellent access to all reaches of the property’s elevations and borders. The western boundary adjoins the Danby State Forest to provide private access to approximately 7,729-acres of public lands where you can further enjoy activities such as hunting, hiking, cross-country skiing, bird watching, snowmobiling, and camping. Further adding to the recreational opportunity is the nearby Finger Lakes Trail system that grants foot access to hundreds of miles of wild space from the Catskills to Western, NY. A great place to let your cares drift away, while not fully severing from conveniences, the unique nature of this private parcel desires to bring its new owners closer to nature without complete isolation. The upper elevations provide a beautiful view of the adjacent hillside and the property’s ravine with a seasonal stream. Some utilities are available at Rt 96B and all seller oil, gas, mineral, and timber rights convey. Contact me today to learn more and schedule a private showing.
