72 acres building site, woods, view, trails in the Town of Gerry
A beautiful 6 acre open field on the road front will make a great location for a future home or camp. There is a nice countryside view from here and electric is available. This transitions into about 20 acres of brush and transitional hardwoods, making excellent cover for deer and other game. The back 46 acres is completely forested with a mix of both hardwoods and softwoods. Maple, ash, cherry, oak, beech and hickory are common along with hemlock and white pine. Timber was last harvested in 2016 on a portion of the woods.
There is excellent access throughout the property. Some of the trails coming in from Harris Hill Road have begun to grow over, but the trails on the back half of the property are in excellent condition. The area snowmobile trail currently has permission to use the existing gas well road that crosses through this parcel, giving you direct access to the trail system! There is a gas well on this property and all rights to it will transfer to the buyer.
There is excellent deer and turkey hunting throughout, but particularly in the more protected back half of the property. Adjoining farm fields that are protected from all view from any highway attract both deer and turkey regularly, making this property an ideal travel corridor and escape cover area. A gully drainage toward the back of the property creates and excellent “pinch point” for both.
Harris Hill State Forest is only minutes up the road. Chautauqua Lake, Lake Erie and the County Wine Trail are all within a 15-20 minute drive.
