What an incredible property with a thick row of pines planted along the road leading up to the gently rolling fields offering spectacular valley views at several locations. Highest point is at 1,485 feet of elevation. As you approach the property, the fields are almost level with the road and slope gently up from the road to the back of the property. There is almost a 50/50 mix of woods and fields with 50 acres of open fields and 49 acres of woods. There are 3 fields separated by hedgerows. The fields have been left to grow wild and would need to be reclaimed with minimal effort if someone wanted to use them for agriculture. Plenty of deer and wildlife habitat on the property.
The wooded acreage has several established ATV trails for easy access throughout the woods. The topography in the woods is gently sloped to rolling in some areas andnear level in the middle. There is a small hidden field approximately 4-5 acres in size that has been mowed on a regular basis and would make a great location for a food plot. Thereare rows of pines including spruce, red pine and some larch. The predominant makeup of the hardwoods are hard maple with some beech, ash and other various hardwoods. There is a small run off stream located in the woods.
If you are looking to start a homestead or build that dream camp, this would be an awesome property! Plenty of fields to grow crops or graze animals. Very unique property which offers a lot for the outdoors enthusiast. There is power available at the road and the road is plowed and maintained in the winter months.
