Ask Brian Bullard
Pennsylvania land with open fields, forest, timber and stream for sale. This is an opportunity to own an exceptional property with multiple uses. The road frontage on both Roses Road and RT 899 is highly buildable for home or camp. The former farm fields can easily be upgraded to their former agricultural status. The apple orchard is thriving and, with a little trimming, can be a quality producer for the family farm. The forest has been managed for long-term quality timber and will continue to produce revenue into the future. Add to that the quality hunting opportunities here coupled with the abundant recreational opportunities available nearby in the Marienville/National Forest region and you have nearly all you could want in a recreational property or homestead.The forest is comprised primarily of soft maple, black cherry, hard maple, hemlock, red oak, beech and more. A timber inventory made in October 2021 by FORECON, Inc. shows a total estimated volume of 444,145 boardfeet of timber currently, Doyle log rule. The primary managed timber area occupies about 79 acres of the total property. Timber quality here is good and long-term management as an investment will provide yields long into the future.An added feature to this property is the developed and paved bike/hike trail along the former railroad grade that passes through the northern end of the property. This trail provides quality access along the former narrow gauge Knox & Kane Railroad through fields forest, farmland and quiet communities for about 20 miles. A truly enjoyable experience awaits!An older board and batten barn is also found on the property. The barn is generally in fair condition for its age and does need a new roof and some work on the interior floor where water has come in through the roof. The rest of the structure appears to be sound.All timber rights will transfer. The oil, gas and mineral rights were previously reserved by Seneca Resources.The property has approximately 1,025 feet of road frontage on Roses Road and about 1,475 feet on RT 899. Electric is available at the road front.
