New York wooded property with timber on the Little Ausable River for sale. This parcel is an excellent small eastern Adirondack property with frontage on the Little Ausable River with the potential to build a camp or permanent residence on a very secluded, private wooded property. This parcel is located in a rural area, on a well-maintained, year-round, paved town road, only 3.7 miles from Ausable Forks, the nearest village. Electric is not available roadside but is located within a reasonable distance (about 1000 feet) to the east along Thomasville Road. The access from Thomasville Road is level and well drained making the property very developable with several areas available to situate a home, camp or to place your RV. Potential views to the south, from the height of land, could be developed by clearing trees and constructing a house near the center of the property, above the slope down to the river . The property is entirely forested, dominated by very mature and large white, red and pitch pine on the level acreage and oak, maple and pine on the slope leading to the Little Ausable River. The Little Ausable River is a classified trout stream with beaver activity creating a series of small ponds which makes this portion of the river accessible by canoe or kayak. The property is situated in an area known for whitetail deer, ruffed grouse, black bear and an occasional moose sighting. Hunting, development and timber rights transfer to the new owner, however mineral rights were retained by a previous owner decades ago. The development process for building structure initially entails preparing and submission of a simple Jurisdictional Inquiry Form (JIF) with the Adirondack Park Agency (APA). The property is favorably zoned as APA Low-Intensity 3.2 acres, which means this property can be subdivided. This property is central to; Montreal, Canada in roughly 2 hours, northeast to Burlington, VT in approximately 1-1/2 hours or NYC in about 5 hours. Lake Placid, the Whiteface Mountain Ski Center and the high peaks region are minutes to the west. A short drive to the east brings you to the shores of Lake Champlain. Launch your vessel at the Port Douglas boat launch and enjoy Lake Champlain. This property can serve as a great base to enjoy all the Adirondack High Peaks Region has to offer.
