Hunting And Rec Farm Overlooking The Ohio River Near Saint Marys


PRICE REDUCED!! This is a turnkey hunting property with a scenic overlook of the Ohio River. A long driveway up the mountain ends at a series of ridgetop fields that are full of wildlife. Apple, persimmon, pawpaw, and white oaks are scattered along the ridge and draw wildlife from the surrounding hills. Whether you are looking for a hunting property or a scenic place to build a cabin, this property has potential. Only 5 minutes from Saint Marys, it offers both seclusion and close proximity to town. The driveway is long, steep, and rugged – but has a solid base. It is blacktopped more than half of the way up and then transitions to gravel until the last couple hundred yards. The final stretch is gravel/dirt and can be traversed with a truck/SUV. The road would need to be improved to provide car access. There is a feeder and multiple tree stands located on the ridge and down some of the logging roads. The property has been selectively hunted in past years and managed for mature whitetail harvests. The ridge top fields were formerly an orchard and a few of the old fruit trees remain. It was select cut approximately eight years ago, but there is still a substantial amount of mature standing hardwood including walnuts, oak, poplar, hickory, buckeye, sycamore, and maple. There are a handful of very large trees that add to the aesthetics of the ridgeline. A 40’ fifth wheel camper is available for purchase and can be negotiated for separately (inquire for pictures). A permanent easement and ROW by prescription are being granted with the property for guaranteed access up the main driveway. City water is available on the east side of the property but has not been tapped or pipelined to the ridge. Electric has not been run to the ridge, but electric lines are close by and are available to be brought up. There are natural springs on the property that can be utilized as a freshwater source. The north side of the property is steep timber with benches, while the south side is more gently sloped with thicker cover. Both sides offer excellent whitetail and turkey hunting in addition to the ridge. There is also phenomenal red and gray squirrel hunting on this property. There is strong cell phone reception on the top. Mineral rights are not included with the property. If you are interested in this great hunting property, give the listing agent a call.
