Farmhouse with 89 acres in Groton NY 210 Bossard Road near Ithaca in Tompkins County

This homestead with 89 acres is located at the end of a dead end road in Groton NY just 25 minutes from Ithaca.

This is an amazing mostly wooded parcel that has a lot to offer with a great deal of habitat diversity.  This property has been owned by the same family for over 90 years!  Situated at the end of Bossard Road sits this large 3 bedroom, 2 full bath farmhouse that has been well-preserved with a recent new roof, updated septic system, vinyl siding and replacement windows.  The interior is very spacious with a walk-in pantry, large kitchen, dining room, living room, attached woodshed and equipment shed area with walk up attic storage.  The kitchen has a dishwasher, gas oven and refrigerator.  The first floor bathroom has an old clawfoot tub with several built-in cabinets.  On the south side of the kitchen is a door that leads outside to an enclosed porch that overlooks the large side yard.  There are 3 bedrooms on the second floor along with a full bath.  For heating, there is a coal stove and a gas stove.  There is no central heating system currently in the home, and the home could use some interior updating.

The backyard hosts a small two-story barn that was once used as a farrier service and a small tool shed.  Decades ago, this was once a thriving homestead that raised livestock and vegetables. Nature has reclaimed the majority of the farm fields but the fields that surrounded the homestead directly behind the barn have mostly grown into brush and could be cleared and reclaimed for pasture.  The property landscape is almost level and easy walking.  There are dozens of established walking and ATV trails throughout the property.  The diversity from one side of the property to the other is amazing which include stands of hemlock, hard maple, soft maple, oak, cherry, locust, black walnut, and other species of hardwoods.  There are 2 small flowing creeks that cross the property creating some small wet areas to support other small wildlife and a place for large animals to get water.  There are areas of open hardwoods and some areas of thick dense brush that offer bedding and cover for whitetail deer.  This would make a great homestead for someone with vision, or a hunting retreat property.  Very private location on a paved dead-end road.
