Recreational Property with Cabin and Ponds on 18 acres in Locke NY 315 Powers Road


This is a nicely-outfitted cabin with 18 acres and is located in Locke NY, Cayuga County.

This property has been owned by the same family for over 50 years!  The cabin has 590 sq. ft., 1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom, and a screened porch. This property was developed and cherished by the current owners. The cabin was built in 1972 and is reminiscent of a past era. It has been well-maintained along with some modern updates including a complete septic system, a drilled well, a new roof, a bathroom, on-demand hot water heater, and power to the cabin. The new roof and new gutters have recently been replaced. The interior of the cabin has knotty pine on the walls and ceilings giving it an authentic cabin feel with a centrally located wood stove for warmth on those cool fall evenings. There is an older 20 x 40 wood-sided barn that has been used to store equipment.

The cabin is tucked away out of sight in the woods for a private location overlooking one of the two ponds on the property. There is a good variety of hardwoods and some mature sugar maple trees that could be used for maple syrup production. The property consists of 2 acres of open fields, 3 acres of wildlife fields, and the remaining 13 acres are wooded with mature hardwoods. As you enter into property from the road’s edge, there is an open area and the topography gently slopes downhill to the cabin with a large pond located in the middle of the property. There is a small stream that feeds the two ponds. The ponds have been stocked with bass, sunfish and crappie and tends to attract waterfowl such as wood ducks, teals and mallards. Back in the woods is an older structure that was once used as a root cellar to store potatoes that were grown on the property.

This is a great property for weekend retreats, family gatherings, hunting, recreation, homesteading, and just enjoying nature. The cabin is currently only set up for seasonal use in the warmer months but could be utilized year-round with some changes and updates to the insulation. The topography is generally rolling in the woods with a small ravine below the ponds. This is a corner lot with over 1,800 feet of road frontage on two roads offering plenty of privacy. If you enjoy fishing, Owasco Inlet is just down the road, and only a few minutes drive to the southern end of Owasco Lake where there is a public boat launch. There is no gas lease and all the oil, gas and mineral rights convey. Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind true Finger Lakes gem.

Nearby destinations include Moravia NY 10 minutes, Ithaca 30 minutes, Cortland 20 minutes, Syracuse 45 minutes, Auburn 35 minutes, and Summer Hill State Forest 5 minutes.

Priced to sell for $159,900.  Contact Brian Jackson 607-280-1058 for more information and to schedule a private showing.
