Port Leyden, Lewis County, New York


52.2 Arces

NYS home in private wooded setting on trout stream near trails For Sale:Outdoor enthusiasts will love this warm, ~1,200 sf, 2-bedroom, 2 bath, ranch style home located on a 52-acre wooded lot bordering Miller Brook, just inside the Adirondack State Park. Built just 9 years ago in 2011, it is characterized by all the modern standards of energy efficiency including; windows, doors, insulating components and appliances. The cedar sided house with wrap around porch, attached 2 stall garage and 3 outbuildings was constructed for privacy, with ~500 of dense woods between it and the public road, as well as to blend in with a natural wooded setting.Interior features include an open floor concept living room and kitchen with cathedral ceiling, T & G pine walls, ceilings and floors throughout with the exception of wall to wall carpet in the bedrooms and ceramic tile floors in the bathrooms, sun room and utility room. A propane furnace includes both heating and cooling functions and the living room woodstove compliments the warmth and comfort of the home during the colder months of the year. All kitchen and laundry appliances stay with the home. A private drilled well and modern septic system are in good working order. Buried utility lines minimize outages, but if power does go out the receptacle in the garage is ready for a generator.A recent timber harvest on this mostly pine wooded property, expanded the yard adjacent to the house and created a spectacular view roughly 1/4 mile south, towards Miller Brook. From the deck and sunroom, you can anticipate seeing all the native wildlife that inhabit this area including; deer, bear, turkey, grouse, bobcat, fox and coyote, as well as numerous songbirds. What a thrill for those of you that can work from home! The clearing is surrounded by a healthy stand of white pine and mixed northern hardwoods which may provide additional revenue, or lumber for future building projects.Miller Brook, with ~1,700 of shoreline, is considered the jewel of the property. It is found in a deep ravine that defines the southern boundary. A foot path to the stream terminates at a small clearing where you find Adirondack chairs around a small bonfire pit. It is there that friends and family will gather to enjoy the soothing sounds of the stream as its water passes over and through bedrock and boulders on the way to the nearby Black River. Kids will certainly enjoy catching small trout in the cooler pockets of the brook and searching for crayfish and frogs along the shore.Public (Lewis County) lands are adjacent, and north of Wildcat Road and snowmobile Trail C8C and ATV trails are less than 1/4 mile away. The location of this property is about halfway between Old Forge and the Tug Hill Plateau, two premier snowmobiling hotspots in northern NY. Two popular recreational destinations nearby include a 15-minute drive to the Snow Ridge Ski Center in Turin and a 20-minute drive to Whetstone Gulf State Park. Grocery and department stores in Lowville and Boonville are but 20 minutes away.Lewis County is a very rural and friendly part of the state. For some, this property might be considered a peaceful haven and used as a wilderness retreat. Others may find it an ideal base camp for motorized recreational activities from which they can explore the vast open space of Northern NY.
