Activities & Amenities
New York wooded land with timber, stream, stocked ponds, farmhouse and out buildings for sale. If you are looking for a property that ACTUALLY has it all look no further! Marsh Creek Farm & Timber is the property for you. The possibilities are endless with options to have your own farm with tillable acreage a barn and pasture, an excellent long term timber investment or just a great place to get away with the family with ponds, trails, woods, streams and excellent wildlife habitat. This property is located on a fully maintained and paved County Road. There is electric available to the property at the road frontage and there is even a small waterfront parcel on Marsh Creek!
The east side of the road is approximately 136 acres in size. This acreage consists of a 14 acre goldenrod field that could be maintained and used for food plots, 40 acres of planted softwoods and hemlocks and an 82 acre woodlot that has been managed for timber and currently shows excellent stocking in both volume and value. There are also three ponds that the landowner says have been stocked with bass and blue gill. While visiting the property I saw ducks on the two interior ponds as well!
The woodlot was last harvested over 15 years ago and is currently stocked with 498,589 board feet of timber based on a timber cruise conducted by FORECON, Inc. in 2021. The main species are Red Oak, Black Cherry, Red Maple, Sugar Maple and White Ash. If managed properly the property could provide income on a 10-15 year rotation to help with taxes or other upkeep making the property almost self-sufficient! The timber is tall, clean and located in an area where there are many different markets making it that much more valuable. This woodlot is truly a must see as most landowners will typically cut some timber prior to selling but this timber is intact and ready to be harvested!
Throughout the east side property you will find a well-groomed internal ATV/hiking trail system that will lead you to all corners of the property. These roads are maintained to provide access to the gas and oil wells scattered throughout the woods. You will also find that there is no lack of wildlife sign regardless of what species you prefer. With the woods being in different stages of succession and “edge” habitat throughout it is a magnet for deer, turkeys, bears, grouse, squirrels and many species of song birds. The many species of mast trees keep the wildlife there year around!
On the west side of the road there is a two story, three bedroom, two bathroom house that boasts 2,776 square feet of living space. Recently the house has been used as a hunting camp/get away by the sellers but could be a full time residence with some TLC. A key feature here is the baseboard heat throughout that runs on Free Gas! Downstairs you will find a master bedroom, full bathroom with tub/shower, living room with a beautiful stone fireplace, laundry room with two freezers and a deep sink and kitchen complete with natural gas stove, refrigerator, dishwasher and laminate counter tops. There is even a sitting room that is perfect for showing off your trophies! With the exception of the bathroom, kitchen and bedroom the downstairs is carpeted. Upstairs you will find two good sized bedrooms with their own large closets. The full bathroom upstairs has a shower stall. There is also an insulated walk-in attic that can be used for additional storage.
Underneath the house is a 48 x34 basement or garage space that has been used as a shop in the past. The basement has a concrete floor and cinder block walls. There is a 7x10 overhead door that makes this the perfect space to store your ATVs, small tractors and any implements that may go along with them or as a shop to keep you out of the cold while working on any of your projects.
Included with the house is a 36 x24 pole barn, 30 x18 tractor bay and corn crib and a 48 x34 barn. The pole barn is aluminum siding with a concrete floor and has 100 amp electric service and a woodstove. This is an ideal place to store all of your tools, treestands or anything else that you may not have room for! The tractor bay is perfect for all of your large scale agriculture equipment. The barn was previously used for beef cows and is complete with a hay mound on top. This would be a great place for a hobby farm with cows, horses and more.
Behind the house and barn is approximately 50 acres of tillable land. 40 acres have been rented for hay by a local farmer to keep them intact. The remaining 10 acres was used as pasture but could be brought back to rotation crops if so desired. There is also an additional 5 acres of pasture south of the barn perfect for cows or horses.
The sellers would prefer to sell the property in its entirety but will consider dividing the property if the west side of the road with the house is sold first; buyers will not be able to purchase just the east side of the road without purchasing the west side as well. There is an oil and gas lease on the property that provides $500-$700 annually to the landowner along with free gas to the house.
