251.84 acres with 70 acre pond, marsh and hardwood forest in the Town of Antwerp
Diversified is the best way to describe this property, both in geographic features as well as the wildlife that inhabit this area. Bald rock outcrops encompass a 70 acre beaver pond surrounded by hardwood forests and marshy wetlands. Wildlife enthusiasts and hunters will find a variety of species to enjoy or pursue on this property. Bear, deer, turkey, grouse, woodcock and assorted waterfowl species and numerous song birds find the pond, wetlands, fields and forest to their liking here. Hay fields, old pasture and young forest characterize the north western region of the parcel. Remnants of a house site are also found there, not far off the Camel Hill Road. Close to 7000 feet of road frontage along the Roy Dickson-Camel Hill Road (an abandoned Town Road) considered good 4WD access, would permit the owner to locate one or more secluded camp(s) with a hilltop view in numerous ideal locations.
The southeastern border of the parcel runs along Parker Ledge, once famous for it’s gneiss (a coarse-grained metamorphic rock resembling granite) where over 100 pairs of millstones were quarried and finished in the early 1800’s. Rock fragments were used as fencing in that region (as seen in the photo gallery). Atop those ledges at night you definitely feel closer to the stars and coyotes howling in the distance remind you there is still plenty of unspoiled wilderness in Northern NY.
Groceries and supplies are not far away with the village of Gouverneur 15 minutes to the east and the City of Watertown just 30 minutes to the west. The St. Lawrence and Oswegatchie Rivers as well as Black Lake are other popular, local, all season fishing and water sport destinations that expand the options of ‘North Country’ activities for you and your family to enjoy.
