66.68 acres completely wooded with managed hardwoods across from Greek Peak Ski Area in the Town of Virgil
This is a great opportunity to own a multi-use property located directly across from Greek Peak Ski area. The property has approximately 3,490 feet of road frontage on NYS Route 392 and about 550 feet of frontage on Carson Road. Electric is available on Carson Road and is the best location for a future home or camp site. Property boundaries are painted in blue.
As you enter from Carson Road, there is about 14 acres of mixed open, brush and transitional hardwoods. This is the ideal setting for your future home or camp and also doubles as excellent wildlife habitat for the abundant game and non-game species found here. The balance of the property is completely wooded and is a mix of white ash, soft maple, hard maple, cherry, birch, hemlock and red oak. There is also a small pine plantation on the property as well.
The 53 acres of forest has been professionally managed for timber production for many years. The 53 acre portion is enrolled in the NYS Forest Tax Law 480-a program which provides a significant reduction in taxes in exchange for the landowner doing the appropriate forest management. The current 480-a plan can be found on our website for this listing and will transfer to the new owner. Forest stands have been improved for both timber and wildlife for many years and will be for years to come, making this an excellent long-term investment property.
In addition, there is excellent habitat here for deer, turkey and other game species. Hunting, hiking and ATV’ing are just a few of the other uses for this property beyond just quietly observing nature in this quiet location.
As an added bonus, Greek Peak Ski area is just minutes away and there are great views of the ski slopes from this property. The property is only minutes from I-81 whether you are coming from the north or south, so you have quick access within a short distance to an Interstate highway.
The owner will retain the subsurface rights only to the oil, gas and mineral under the property. The surface rights will completely transfer to the new owner, guaranteeing that no disruption of the surface to this property will ever occur by any future oil or gas wells, pipelines, etc.
