Land of opportunity! A magical 558+ acre parcel of land, 90 minutes from Manhattan, offers endless possibilities as a sprawling fun-filled family compound or commercial facility with enormous potential. Level terrain, extensive trails, pastures and meadows are a natural for an exceptional equestrian facility (private or commercial), ATVs and hiking and as well as vineyard or farm.
Currently used for hunting deer, bear, coyote, and duck, the land boasts an extensive water impoundment system to create a series of ponds for waterfowl and other wildlife, ideal for hunting enthusiasts. The water impoundment system allows for up to 1 million gallons a day to flow in from the Great Swamp, one of New York’s largest wetlands, flooding specific areas of the property to create nine ponds on the property. Conversely, this impressively sustainable impoundment system can be drained, releasing the water back into the Great Swamp and restoring the ponds to dry land. The impoundment system (rarely installed on private property due to cost) gives the land increased versatility—ponds when desired during hunting season, and the quick return to the property’s original terrain when the water is released.
