Property Description

New York Land with woods, open, trails, cabin and West Branch of Oswegatchie River for Sale:  The current owner purchased this parcel ~13 years ago for both recreational and timber investment.  Enrollment in the NYS Section 480-a of the Forest Tax Law provided the owner with a forest management plan to help achieve investment goals, as well as a generous reduction in assessment, resulting in lower taxes.  Access to the property is from State Route 812 with ~500 feet of road frontage.  Electric utilities and cable services are available roadside.

A cabin was built in 2010 by the hunting group currently leasing the property, roughly 700’ from Route 812.  The cabin is ~768 square feet in size, 1.5 story, with painted steel covered roof and siding.  It is partially insulated.  Full dimension, rough lumber was used in its construction.  Interior walls and first floor ceiling are unfinished.  It does not have water or septic, however there is a privy out back and a gravity fed shower stall upstairs.  Heat is supplied by a wood stove.  Liquid propane gas is the fuel used for both lighting and cooking.  There is an open porch with roof on the back side and adjacent storage shed for equipment and recreational vehicles.  The cooktop/oven and woodstove are not included in the sale.

Most of the mature and low-quality timber on the property was harvested during the winter of 2013-14.  Skidways and a truck road created during the harvest make excellent x-country skiing, snow-shoeing, snowmobiling, hunting, hiking and ATV trails.  The log landing at the end of the truck road has become a great natural food plot.  Most of the residual trees present are in the seedling, sapling and pole size classes.  The predominant species found on the property include: sugar and red maple, black, pin and fire cherry, yellow, paper and grey birch, white and black ash, beech, aspen, red spruce, balsam fir, white pine and hemlock.  The management plan does not call for any forestry work to be completed during the next 15 years.  A copy of the 480-a Forest Management Plan and Treatment Schedule is available upon request.

Based on the abundance of food resources, water, cover, and physical evidence, whitetail deer, black bear, snowshoe rabbit, ruffed grouse, turkey, fisher, bobcats, coyotes and a mixed bag of waterfowl either live on or frequent the property.  The West branch of the Oswegatchie River, a protected trout stream, abuts the property in the northeast corner on its journey north, where it eventually empties into the St. Lawrence River.  Brook trout are the sport-fish of choice in the river.  Shiners, sunfish, suckers, chubs, minnows, and bullheads are other common fish found in its waters.

The 20,412-acre Jadwin Memorial State Forest borders the property on both the eastern and southern boundaries, greatly expanding the recreational area available to the property owner.  Access to both snowmobile and ATV are just minutes away.

Along with numerous other properties in this area, mineral rights were reserved on this property in the late 1800’s.  A fishing easement along the River was established in the 1930’s and The Iroquois Gas Transmission Line easement in the late 1980’s.

There is currently a lease agreement between the owner and the hunting group that covers most of the taxes.  The owner reserved the option to terminate the lease agreement with a 30-day notice.

This would be a great property for a family or group that hope to enjoy a variety of Northern New York outdoor activities.  This property is very productive for deer hunting.  It is central to numerous great destinations including; Canada, The St. Lawrence River/Thousand Islands and the Adirondacks.  Watertown is roughly 35 minutes west.  This is a great opportunity to own an exceptional piece of Northern NY recreational land at a reasonable price!
