Activities & Amenities
New York land completely wooded with mixed hardwoods and softwoods for sale: The property has more than 3,100 feet of road frontage on Balf Road. This is a seasonal use road in the winter, but the plowing ends very close to the north boundary making it easy to access year ‘round. There is no electric at the property. It is about 500 feet away.
The property is completely wooded and is a terrific mix of both hardwoods and softwoods. The forest is dominated by sugar maple, red maple, cherry and ash with beech, birch and other species as well. The softwoods are comprised of some beautiful spruce and white pine that are large and lush, creating additional diverse habitat for wildlife. The forest is being managed professionally under the NYS Tax Law 480-a management plan. By doing the best forestry practices the owner receives a significant tax break on the property taxes. A complete copy of the current plan can be found on our website.
The property is extremely diverse and was a former Boy Scout camp. There are remnants of a few buildings and a working pitcher pump for water. The seller is not guaranteeing the flow or potability as it has not been used in several years, but it does work. There are existing trails for your hunting, hiking or ATV’ing pleasure. Deer and turkey sign is abundant and the current owner keeps the property posted.
Other recreational opportunities are nearby as well. NYS Forest Lands are 1-1.5 miles from here in two different directions.
