174.49 acres with trails throughout in the Town of Fort Ann (Price Reduced!)
A steady up hill climb from an elevation of 340′ at the newly constructed entrance drive on Hogtown Road, to a height of nearly 1,000′ describes the terrain along the southern border of this wooded parcel on the northern slope of Putnam Mountain. Several small brooks wind their way off the side of the mountain and across the property, eventually feeding the waters of Halfway Creek below. The northeastern half of the property is dominated by hemlock forest, while the south-western portion is predominately mixed hardwoods consisting of; yellow, paper, gray and black birch, red and white oak, red and sugar maple, beech, ash and basswood. The abundance of nut and seed bearing trees undoubtedly attract a wide variety of both game and non-game species. In addition, a selective timber harvest within the last 10 years has resulted in a flush of berry bushes, adding to the already present blueberries at higher elevations. Lying just within the Adirondack Park gives the new owner added relief that the surrounding area will not become ‘over-developed’. There are several great places back in the woods and along an old existing jeep trail to build a cozy secluded cabin or camp. There’s a good chance you might not hear or see anything for days if you choose the right spot! The shopping and tourist attractions of the Lake George area are far enough away for those that avoid that type of ‘disturbance’, yet close enough for members of your family and visiting friends to partake in those activities. Thirty minutes to the east are the Green Mountains of Vermont which attract outdoor enthusiasts of every nature. So much to do and so little time! This may just be the right place to enjoy doing as much or as little as you truly want to! Price Reduced!
