55 acres Farmhouse with Barn and Pond in Orange NY 1270 County Road 16
Farmhouse with a barn and pond on 55 acres in Orange NY.
First time on the market in over 60 years! Multigenerational farm in the Finger Lakes Region is for sale. This property has a little bit of everything to offer. It is comprised of 55 total acres with 3 acres of tillable land currently planted in corn, 20 acres of overgrown pasture and the remaining 32 acres are woods. There is a creek that runs through the lower portion of the property, a stocked half-acre pond and incredible valley views. The homestead has an aluminum-sided 4 bedroom, 1 bath house with an attached garage and a wood-sided 42 x 22 barn.
This farm was once used to raise beef cattle and replacement heifers. The barn offers plenty of room for your equipment, livestock and hay storage. There is a main trail that leads from the barn through the middle of the property up to the side hill where the stocked pond is located. The pond offers a watering spot for wildlife and was used for watering cattle in the past. When I walked the woods I noticed several game trails that where worn deeply into the forest floor. The species I noticed in the woods consisted of hemlock, maple, ash and some beech. The overgrown pastures offer an opportunity for someone to reclaim them and raise animals or leave them be for wildlife habitat. There are several wild apple trees growing out in the old pastures. This property is located in the heart of the Finger Lakes between Watkins Glen and Corning, New York. Looking to start homesteading or a weekend spot to retreat? This may be your ticket. The house is in need of repair. Great place to build sweat equity! The property has been recently surveyed. The oil, gas and mineral rights transfer.
