Retired Tree Farm Acreage with Rehab-Required Home Site


PRICE REDUCED! Previously the site of a place that brought seasonal cheer to the faces of many, this retired Christmas tree farm and home site has much to offer a creative visionary who can see its possibilities through restoration to its original state. The rehab-required ranch-style home is, in need of an overhaul, but presents the opportunity to once again be the cornerstone of what was once a majestically occupied family estate for multiple generations. Three bedrooms, 1.5 baths, a family room and open kitchen/dining room make up the home’s 1,538 square feet. A large hearth with a commanding presence surrounds the wood burning stove to create a centerpiece that warms the home and its occupants. This is a perfect place for family and friends to eventually unite in a primary residence, as a family retreat or hunting camp that takes advantage of the accompanying acreage. The property immediately around the home presents significant opportunities for outdoor living in a country setting with the high-demand advantages of full utilities, Spectrum provided high-speed internet/cable and adequate Verizon Wireless cell phone coverage at the house.  A large back yard takes view of a section of the land comprised of thickening brush and sky reaching evergreens that provide privacy for the homeowners and sanctuary for white-tailed deer, songbirds, grouse and turkeys.  A series of well- established in-woods trails can be accessed either right from the back yard or from a gated entrance at the end of Taylor Rd. The remnants of the once-thriving tree farm have grown up to provide excellent habitat and thermal cover for the wildlife that take up its boundaries.  In addition to the stands of aging evergreens, regenerative brush, scattered mature timber patches and a diversified mix of hard and soft wood trees partition the landscape into a series of habitats. These transitional areas cross varying topography to provide an excellent blend of food and cover all within a moderate footprint.  The property is home a good population of white-tailed deer and turkeys and has provided consistent year-over-year opportunities for the group that hunts the land – including success on age-class bucks with trophy-sized antlers.  Conveniently located approximately 20 minutes from Elmira, NY with easy access to Rt. 86 and just over 1-hour to Binghamton. For your chance to view this opportunity-rich dwelling and land, please contact me for a site tour and home showing.
