The property is almost entirely forested with a great mix of hard maple, soft maple, red oak, hickory, beech, hemlock and white pine. It is a very aesthetically pleasing property with rolling, gentle hills, mixed hardwoods and softwoods and a flowing stream through the central portion creating ample solitude on this quiet location. The owners have managed the forest for timber over the decades and there is good value here currently. The last harvest was only a couple of years ago and the woods looks great and all interior roads and trails are in great shape.
The long tenure of management here has created excellent conditions for both deer and turkey whose signs are prevalent throughout the property. The network of trails makes great access to all parts of the property for hunting, hiking and ATV’ing as well as cross-country skiing and mountain biking.
Near the north end of the property, an old railroad bed passes through which is part of the Portage Trail (a historic hiking trail) which doubles as being part of the area snowmobile trail in winter. Go for quiet hikes on the trail throughout the year and jump on your sled and run the trails!
Besides the stream there are 3 wetland ponds on the property near the south end. The water levels fluctuate here and there is a wooded component to all of them.
There is an existing older gas well on the property and the seller does not believe that they own the rights to it. They will transfer all rights they own but they may not own the oil & gas rights.
The property has more than 2,800 feet of road frontage on Quilliam Road and electric is available along a portion of the frontage.
The property is just minutes to Mayville for all the amenities as well as Chautauqua Lake for your boating and fishing pleasure. Continue over the hill to Westfield and be on Lake Erie in just a few minutes also for some of the best smallmouth bass, walleye, steelhead and lake trout fishing in the State!
