NYS Adirondack Park waterfront property with house on Upper Chase Lake for sale. This almost move-in-ready, three-bedroom, one bath, 1-1/2 story structure could be used as a full-time home or seasonal cottage. It is situated on 1.6 wooded acres, with approximately 330' of frontage, on the northern shore of Upper Chase Lake, just twelve miles from Lowville, the nearest village. The house is nestled between tall pines and hardwood trees common to the forests which surround the Lake. Originally built in 1992, it was designed as a retirement home with modern amenities and low maintenance in mind. Exterior building and site characteristics include; a concrete block, full size basement with interior and exterior entrances, fully insulated wood framing with vinyl siding, a painted steel roof, and 200 amp. electric service via one private utility pole. A 14' deep, driven point (with pump and pressure tank in the basement) was tested to deliver 3-1/2 gallons/minute. The septic tank and leach field are located on the northwestern side of the house. All work was done according to local building codes at the time. A 10' x 36' open, lakeside deck, a great location for a barbecue grill and picnic table, was added in 2005.
Interior features include; a kitchen finished with knotty pine cabinets with Whirlpool appliances, including a microwave, cooktop-oven, and refrigerator. Washer and dryer are situated close to the side door. Linoleum flooring is found in the kitchen and bathroom while wall-to-wall carpet was chosen for the living room and bedrooms. Wall and ceiling finishes include a combination of T & G knotty pine and painted sheetrock. Energy-efficient windows and doors were installed throughout. The second story is partially finished and awaits the finishing touch of the new owner. The house is heated with an aesthetic propane 'wood' stove with ceramic 'burning' logs which add warmth and beauty to the lakeside, open-concept kitchen-dining-living room. It is currently not heated through the winter, so winterization includes; disconnecting the jet water pump, draining pipelines and the hot water heater, and placing antifreeze in the toilet. It is being sold 'as is', with the appliances and furniture currently present.
This portion of the Stony Lake Road is maintained year 'round. Moose Pines Road, a private access road that cuts through the northwest corner of the property, is shared and maintained by neighbors on the western shore of the Lake. There is no formal Home Owners Association on Upper Chase Lake.
Fishing enthusiasts will be pleased with the variety of fish that inhabit this lake's clear, cool water. The most common are: Pumpkinseed Sunfish, Rock Bass, Bullhead, Smallmouth Bass, Yellow Perch and Brook Trout.
