NYS Land with old homestead and winding brook for sale: Walking about this property takes one back in time to the days when most people lived a rural life. I'm sure the fields were full of fruits and vegetables, soon to be preserved and stored in the field stone cellar beneath the house, in preparation for the long, harsh Tug Hill winters. The 1850's vintage house and sheds is all that remains of the homestead. Abandoned now for years, this ~1800 sf, 4 bedroom, 2 story house, may still be revived by proficient owners. Stone fences and rock piles about the property are evidence that livestock was raised here as well. Lyman Brook finds it's way through the property, dodging hogsback eskers, and slowing to rest in several beaver ponds along the way as it heads south. Brook trout are certain to be found in these cool, clear waters that begin their journey on the Cottrell State Forest on the northern boundary (see the attached description of the Cottrell SF). Forest stands on the property are predominantly northern hardwoods including species such as: black cherry, hard & soft maple, yellow birch, white & black ash, basswood, beech, aspen. Other tree species present include butternut, apple, hophornbeam, elm, hemlock, red spruce & white pine. Based on the ample supply of food, water, cover, and physical evidence, whitetail deer, snowshoe rabbit, ruffed grouse, turkey and a mixed bag of waterfowl are sure to frequent the property. This would be a great place for a young family, that loves the outdoors, to build a home and raise a family, or for an older couple, interested in living off the land in the latter part of their lives. Don't miss the opportunity to visit this property. It might just be the one you've been looking for! Owner financing may be available.
