Pennsylvania vacant land mostly wooded with timber, trails and stream for sale. The Clarks Hollow property is nicely nestled about one hour northeast of Pittsburgh in southern Armstrong County. Within 30 minutes you have access to larger highways: To the south - Route 22, To the west - Route 28, To the east - Route 422. As the crow flies, the Apollo Elks Country Club is about 1.5 miles to the south. The property is mostly wooded with some openings on the northern section, along with openings created by the 8 gas wells. The gas wells provide a nice network of access roads throughout the property. There are currently active producing gas wells on the property, all rights will be transferred to the new owner. Both access roads on the north and south side of Clarks Hollow Road are gated, and have been consistently kept locked. It appears the timber has not been cut for at least 20 years. Property is loaded with retired logging trails that can be groomed into hiking or ATV trails. A Timber Appraisal was conducted in July of 2021, with an estimated 501,551 board feet of timber at a value of $188,623.00. The timber species is a variety of hardwoods with some small blocks of pine stands. The stand consists of sugar maple, red oak, black oak, white oak, tulip poplar, cherry, beech, hickory, and the balance in miscellouous species. Trees keep growing and the value keeps coming! The terrain is a mix of hills and valleys with a couple round tops. Both north and south sections have waterways that drain into Carnahan Run. The property is located in a lightly populated area offering the privacy you are looking for. There is 2,275 feet of road frontage on Clarks Hollow Road. Nobody is moving in close to you! The property was previously leased for hunting from 2014 to 2021. It was posted during this time. The lease was not renewed in 2021 to begin the process of selling the land. The property shows plenty of good deer sign. I bounced into a couple different groups of deer the day I was taking pictures. The property is prime for the new owner to continue to create wildlife habitat that will keep the whitetails home. The property is not in Clean and Green. The new owner may pursue this to bring substantial savings on the property taxes. This property gives the new owner natural resources of timber and gas rights. This is versatile piece of property: for the investor, the hunter, the outdoor enthusiast, and the adventurous spirit ready to put their stamp on the ridge with an off the grid cabin! On 253 acres you have room-lots of room. Clarks Hollow - Bring the camper!
