34 acres Log Home with Pond and Woods in Bainbridge NY 689 East Afton Road borders State Forest


Awesome recreational retreat bordered by over 5,000 acres of state forests! 

This attractive log home sits back on a private lawn overlooking a gorgeous man-made pond designed deep enough and cool enough to stock trout.  The small stream flowing through the property also has ponds that attract waterfowl, mink, beavers, hawks, fox, deer and an occasional black bear.  Sit back on your front porch and watch and photograph the beauty of nature as the seasons change and wildlife walks by or grazes in your yard.

If you are into hunting or hiking or exploring, you can walk or stalk for miles in surrounding Melondy Hill State Forest. There are also several other State Forests and parks within a couple of miles that have lakes open for fishing and additional trails.  The owner enjoys hunting and he and his friends and family have success year after year harvesting deer and turkey, within a short walk of the cabin, while his wife sits comfortably reading by the wood stove on cold days.  During the summer months they enjoy the lawn and the pond and the solitude.

The home has a drilled well.  A generator provides power but electric is also available if you decide to run a line back from the road entrance.  For 40 years the owners have made numerous improvements to suit them.  The new owners may want to make more.  Please call or email for more details on the home and for an appointment to view this special, yet affordable property.

You can shop for necessities in several towns only 5 to 15 minutes away or run to Binghamton or Oneonta in a little over 30 minutes, and scenic Cooperstown is 50 minutes away.  Nearby kayaking rivers and fishing in Catskill trout streams provide additional outdoor entertainment.  Approx. 3 hours drive to New York City or Philadelphia.

Offered at $179,900.  Contact Norm Niggli 607-237-1949 for more information.
