139.3 acres with woods, beaver ponds and stream in the Town of Dekalb
Remnants of an old barn, farmhouse, planting devices and fence lines tell a story of agriculture playing a role in this forested property’s past. Once farming ceased, and fields and pastures were destined to return to forest, Norway spruce and white pine trees were planted in areas between the rock outcrops where hardwoods were not yet established. The native hardwood tree species include; sugar & red maple, red & white oak, basswood, beech, butternut, ash, hickory, hophornbeam, birch, and cherry. Native softwoods include white pine, hemlock, red spruce and balsam fir. Most of the timber is currently in the pole to small sawtimber size class, an opportune size for improvement thinning. The most northern portion of the parcel extends into marsh land adjacent to Barter Creek. Three beaver ponds bisect the parcel south of the road. There is an abundance of evidence that deer, turkey, grouse, woodcock and a variety of waterfowl utilize the property’s resources.
Geographically, this property is found in the St. Lawrence River Valley, roughly 13 miles from the port of Ogdensburg on the River, and only a stones throw (30 minutes) from the Adirondack State Park, two of the most popular recreational areas in NYS. Fishing enthusiasts will likely catch a few trout on the property, but may find the nearby Oswegatchie more challenging in their quest to catch popular game fish including; bass, northern pike, muskellunge, walleye, perch and trout. As the local Amish families will attest to, St. Lawrence County is a great place to raise families and live off the land. So if you are looking for that special place to call your own, in the most sparsely populated county of NYS, you need to check out this beautiful setting in the Town of Dekalb, just around the corner from the friendly waters of the Oswegatchie River and the scenic Coopers Falls!
More land than you need? The owners are willing to sell the ~54 acre portion north of the road for $37,800, or the ~86 acres south of the road for $60,200, final acreage and price to be determined by survey.
