New York managed forest with off grid cabin, trails, stream and adjacent to NYS Land for Sale: This modern, off-grid, one bedroom, 960 sf cabin was built on a concrete block foundation using lumber produced from white pine trees harvested from the property. The full dimension rough lumber used includes: 4 x 10 roof rafters and loft floor joists, 2 x 6 sidewall framing and board & batten siding. Fully insulated, a full-size basement, and steep pitched, painted steel roof, indicates this place was built for warmth, low maintenance and endurance. A Jotul (Norwegian) wood stove provides the main source of heat during the winter months while a backup Renai propane gas heater takes off the chill on the cooler nights during spring and fall. Completely wired for electric, the 8,000 watt generator provides power when there is a demand for extra lights, running water and refrigeration. A newly drilled, 200 deep, well and conventional septic system are the 'icing on the cake' for both comfort and cleanliness!
There are numerous destinations in the area for outdoor enthusiasts to discover and activities to enjoy including; hiking trails throughout the Independence River Wild Forest, horseback riding and cross-country skiing on the Otter Creek Horse Trails, canoeing, kayaking and fishing along the Black and Beaver River Canoe Routes, downhill skiing at Snow Ridge in Turin and more cross-country skiing at BREIA in Boonville to name a few.
Inclined to stay closer to camp? The ~205 acres of multiple-use recreational land included with this cabin has a maze of trails which make hunting, walking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing or riding through these woods easy and enjoyable. Deer are also quite fond of these trails, as witnessed by numerous scrapes, rubs and paths, to and from the ~1.5 acre food plot just north of the cabin. The predominately hardwood and pine forest has been managed for timber production for 25 years or more. Its recent thinning will stimulate regeneration in the understory as well as increase diameter growth in the remaining trees. A tributary to the Black River originates on the property. Most likely fishless, it flows north to join Fish Creek which eventually enters the River roughly 3 miles from the property south of Greig. Just south of Town Line Road is New York State Land including the High Towers State Forest which is outside the Adirondack Forest Preserve and managed for multiple use, and the Independence River Wild Forest which is inside the Blue Line and is Forever Wild.
The Town Line Road, east of the intersection with Shibley Road, is seasonally maintained and becomes part of Snowmobile Trail C8B in winter months. The northern boundary of the property has frontage on the Abbey Road which is seasonally maintained and open to ATVs. From this location you can just hop on your sled or ATV and ride in almost any direction!
Too much land? The cabin with ~102 acres is also offered for sale by the Seller for $180,000. There is still plenty of road frontage for alternative building sites to construct one or more cabins of your own design.
All in all, a very comfortable and convenient place to own if your focus is outdoor recreation in northern NY. There is so much to do in this region, this could be your family's recreational dream space in the foothills of the Adirondacks!
Heading north on the Lyons Falls Road turn right on the Rumble Road. Rumble Road becomes the Town Line Road at the Wilcox Road intersection, continue straight ~.2 miles past Shibley Road intersection, driveway and gate on your left.
