New York mostly wooded property with stream for sale. Located in the Southern Tier of NYS, in the NW corner of Chenango County, this property is characteristic of farms in which small, less productive, or difficult to access outlying fields and woods have been separated from the main farm and sold. The property is accessed by and has over 600' of frontage on the gravel and seasonally maintained Lane Hill Road. Electric utilities are not available roadside and there are no improvements on the property. There is no zoning in the Town of Lincklaen.Various stages of natural forest development are found on the property and in the region which provide the shelter and food resources for many species of wildlife including; deer, bear, fox, coyotes, rabbits, grouse, woodcock and a variety of songbirds. Predominate tree species include Hemlock, Sugar and Red Maple, Beech, Basswood, Yellow Birch, Ash and Hophornbeam. Sandwiched between Cuyler Hill and Lincklaen State Forests, totaling over 10,000 acres, makes this a prime property for Southern Tier hunting. It is also a popular area for hiking, snowmobiling, fishing, camping, bird watching, and nature viewing.Approximately 3.5 acres of retired pasture with southern exposure in the northeast corner would be an ideal area to build a cabin with solar panels. Brush hogging this area may give rise to dormant grasses that are more favorable for deer and other grazers, as well as improve the view of critters along the tree-line and of the distant hillside. The small, seasonal stream that traverses the southern end of the property is a tributary to Mud Creek.Interstate 81 passes through Cortland NY, the nearest large city, just 30 minutes west of the property. Labrador Mountain Ski Center is but 30 minutes north. Overall, a rather small investment with potential for a great deal of fun!
