Jim's Gem, New York
Property Types: Vacant Land
Activities & Amenities
New York wooded hunting property with tree stands, views, wildlife pond and all rights transferring for sale. The property is almost entirely forested with a mix of maple, ash, cherry, beech, hemlock, birch and much more. This is a young forest as logging was done several years ago that removed the majority of the dying ash and timber value and has had the positive effect of releasing all of the regeneration creating fantastic habitat for deer. There are patches of apple trees scattered throughout as well providing even more forage for wildlife. In addition, there is a small woodland pond providing a water source for wildlife as well as Dewittville Creek which crosses the property at the southwest corner.
The main driveway into the property leads immediately to a high/dry opening ideal for your future home or camp or as a great spot to park a camper or tent camp. There is a 150 amp electric service here already installed here as well that has a camper hook-up. There is a nice view to the south from this point looking toward Chautauqua Lake. There is also a nice view deep into the property along the west side at the high point on the property. Fantastic sunsets can be seen from this location.
The driveway continues to the gas well site on the property. There is about a ¾ acre opening here that the owner has planted into a clover food plot for deer that sees plenty of use. The oil, gas and mineral rights will transfer including rights to the well. There may be an opportunity for free gas. This is an older well and the new owner would need to have the gas company “qualify” the well as to its capability of providing the free gas. It is available if the well qualification is positive.
This property has been owned for decades purely as a hunting property with a focus on deer. The owner has tree stands in the best, most productive locations including one stick-built “mega-stand”, fully enclosed and ideal for hunting from during the cold and wet days of the season. The owner has had great success here harvesting many large bucks over the decades.
It is situated in a great, central location being only 5 miles from Mayville and Chautauqua Lake, 8 miles to Chautauqua Institution, 2 miles to NYS Land and the area snowmobile trails are less than a mile away!
