Property Description

NYS Land with building lot at NYS Route 3 intersection, sub-dividable, with Lake Ontario access and near Southwick Beach State Park For Sale: This is a partially wooded lot with a variety of small, mostly non-commercial trees and shrubs including red cedar, hawthorn, box elder, sumac and willow.  It is relatively high and dry with good access from either Benton Road or Route 3.  There are no improvements on the lot, however there is a very old stone foundation located close to the center of the property amongst the thick shrubs.  The adjacent land is mostly tillable and planted to corn.  There is a single residence adjacent to and east of Route 3.

The property benefits from a deeded 25-foot wide non-exclusive right of way to Lake Ontario at the end of Armstrong Road. This access is for pedestrian use only and does not allow for vehicular access. You may enter the lake from here for swimming or launching a kayak, canoe or small car-top boat.

Swimming, camping and hiking are some of the activities available less than a half mile away at the Southwick Beach State Park.  The Stony Creek Boat Launch is the nearest Lake Ontario public launch site.  The Lake is famous for its fantastic salmon fishery. Some of the best snowmobiling in the Northeast is found just minutes away on the Tug Hill Plateau.

This would be a great location for someone to build a house or camp in order to take advantage of a variety of Lake Ontario area activities.  It may also be a desirable location for a seasonal business that caters to local recreation and tourism, as Route 3 is a major thoroughfare.  This site is central to numerous other great destinations including; The St. Lawrence River/Thousand Islands, The Salmon River Reservoir, Oneida Lake, the Adirondacks and Canada.  Syracuse is about 1 hour south and Watertown roughly 25 minutes north.  They say the three most important criteria for a property is location, location, location.  This may just be the right location for you!

There is approximately 565’ of road frontage on Benton Road and 385’ along NYS Route 3.  Electric utilities and cable phone services are available roadside.
