15.27 acres with small creek and building site in the Town of Hounsfield
This parcel has the potential to be an excellent residential or commercial building site, central to all the action in Jefferson County. The property is surrounded by both agricultural and residential owners in a relatively quiet neighborhood. Classified as a ‘Multi-Use District’ it lends itself to a variety of permitted uses such as; single and two family houses, individual mobile homes, agriculture, home occupations and specific multi-family dwellings. A large list of commercial, institutional, recreational and housing uses may be permitted as well after site plan review and approval.
The eastern half of the property is open meadow and relatively flat terrain. It slopes slightly west toward the small stream that bisects the property. This all season, fish-less stream flows north, under Sulphur Spring Road, to join Mill Creek on the other side. The western portion of the property is characterized by a thicket of small trees and shrubs, ideal wildlife cover. A few years ago the adjacent owner fenced the entire property and grazed horses there. Signs of deer use are abundant.
Travel just 1.5 miles east of the property and hop on I-81 for the quickest route to Watertown, Fort Drum Army Base and the St. Lawrence River communities to the north as well as Syracuse and all points south.
For fishing and other ‘big water’ recreational opportunities, the villages of Sackets Harbor and Henderson Harbor and two Sate Park beaches line the shores of Lake Ontario, all within a half hour drive to the west.
