Secluded, private, easily accessible 23 acres. Looking for a simple back-to-nature recreation & vacation spot, an easily accessible yet safely distant destination? This land is under 3 hours from NYC, yet a secure distance from the chaos of the urban scene.
Whether you just want to hunt and camp or if you are looking for a place that has all the important basics you need to start a new lifestyle right away, this spot, 23 wooded/pastured acres less than three hours northwest of the city off Rt. 17, may be just what you need - not just as a quick 'bug out', but a location that has all the potential for a private, secure alternate lifestyle. Take Rt. 17N (future I-86) to exit 84,then 10 miles north on Rt. 8, then left off Rt. 8 onto town maintained Shear Road(@ obvious ice cream stand). Entrance to the property is approximately 400 yds. on the right. With 400' of access road frontage on its southern boundary, grid power at the entrance, it also offers natural, potable (lab tested) surface water (cistern and springs), and a seasonal stream and seasonal creek. There are numerous potential building sites throughout the property, two located near the entrance to the property have already been perc tested. There is plenty of space for hiking, camping, ATVing, snow mobiling, hunting, or raising crops/animals. 434' of the western end of the property is a shared boundary with NYS land. Opportunities for hunting w/plenty of wildlife, primarily deer and turkey, also black bear and the occasional bobcat sighting. A rustic hunter's shelter (12'x12', wood w/metal roof, exterior finished, interior unfinished, (w/ Anderson windows and a currently unconnected wood stove) is located about half way into the property, at the end of the drive/ATV trail. The property is L- shaped (see maps). Wooded areas are mostly soft maple, a dense spruce pine grove, another acre+ of thinly disbursed tall pines, an open 5+ acres of pasture w/ scattered new pine tree growth - and two very mature apple trees (which attract deer). At the northern boundary of the property, 350' of that shared boundary is a seasonal stream, giving the potential for seasonal hydro power & seasonal solar power(in the open pasture area). A number of natural springs in the middle of the pasture offer a potential natural irrigation source.
