Johnsburg High Peaks View, New York
Property Types: Cabin, Recreational
Activities & Amenities
New York wooded land with camp, stream, views and adjoins State Land for Sale. Adirondack forestland with a 55-mile view to the High Peaks from a cleared and accessible high-elevation home site. Situated in the Town of Johnsburg, this eastern Adirondack property is located directly adjacent to over 120,000 acres of Forever Wild, State Forest Preserve.
The Johnsburg High Peaks View property is located at the end of Armstrong Road, a town-maintained rural gravel road that receives little through traffic. Being that the property is adjacent to thousands of acres of Forest Preserve, as well as to other large, privately-held rural parcels, it will provide both peace and seclusion to its new owner.
The current owner has invested in developing a road to a view that offers a nearly 180-degree panoramic view that includes the high peaks at 55 miles, Moxham Mountain at 13 miles, and Crane Mountain at 3 miles. The cleared view is positioned with an easterly aspect to capture the morning and mid-day sun, offering the potential for a solar installation.
The property has a camp which can be remodeled to suit the ownership needs. This forestland could be developed into a hunting retreat with food plots, browse, and water resources. Past forest management activities have created a trail system suitable for ATV use, as well as abundant deer browse and a good stocking of red oak, to the benefit of wildlife. The year-round stream along the length of the property, where small trout were observed in pools, offers an aesthetic and wildlife water resource. With its access to thousands of acres of State Land, this property provides a myriad of year-round recreational opportunities. It is also within 2.5 miles of snowmobile trails that lead into Thurman, Stony Creek, Speculator, and beyond.
The Johnsburg High Peaks View property is under 20 minutes from Gore Mountain Ski Area and North Creek, about an hour from Saratoga Springs, 1.5 hours from Albany, and ~4 hours from NYC. In addition to the recreational opportunities afforded by the property and surrounding region, this property would be a great spot for a private retreat, offering spectacular views and quiet seclusion.
