50 acres with forest, pasture land, views and building site in Brooklyn Township
The property acreage is mixed almost evenly between fields and forest. The forest is comprised of maple, ash, cherry, beech, hemlock, red pine and more. This is a young timber stand and timber has not been harvested for some time now. The fields have not been tended in a while but reveal a past history of hay and pasture land, ideal for having a small hobby farm. There is a portion of the horse corral that the Girl Scouts formerly used that is on this property.
The property is located in a nice, rural, quiet setting, with the Girl Scout Camp Archbald being the primary neighbor. There are multiple locations for a future home or camp along the abundant road frontage.
Quality hunting for deer and turkey are found here due to the mix of open, woods, food and cover on this property and the surrounding area.
Oil and gas rights are being reserved by the Girl Scouts and do not transfer. The property will be sold subject to an existing oil and gas lease that is a subsurface only lease. No surface disturbance by the oil & gas company is allowed, nor can any oil or gas wells be drilled on this property, leaving the surface completely undisturbed. The only exception is a pipeline easement that was entered into by the Girl Scouts. This lease and the proposed gas pipeline location can be found with the listing information on our website.
The property is located close to Montrose, Scranton and I-86 making it an ideal location for your home or camp!
