Own a Lake, a Mountain and a House Bordering State Land


You have an opportunity to own your own private 14 acre lake, a mountain, a valley view and a beautiful contemporary home in a park like setting bordered by 1,666 acres of Plumb Bottom State Forest. Properties like this only come by every once in a while, a special property for sure. Sip morning coffee or afternoon iced tea from the covered porch observing geese, ducks, bald eagles, hawks, herons and deer all around Saunders Pond. This private lake is not regulated by the DEC, is 100% private and consistently produces 4 and 5 pound bass with some pan fishing for the family. Cast a line off the dock or explore the shoreline for a trophy largemouth. Take a morning paddle and relax. Deer and turkey are abundant with the bonus state land expanding your hunting opportunities. Over a mile of ATV trail is established for access to the mountain top and hidden food plots and fields. Mixed hardwoods and planted pines offer a variety of cover for deer, turkey and bear habitat. From the mountain top trails, you can look over the lake and enjoy a vista view west across the valley and see for miles. Throughout the mountain property are trilliums, wild roses and wild flowers, while the owner has planted apple, pear, and plum trees near the house, with blueberry, gooseberry and elderberry bushes to compliment the natural harvest that they bring each season. The three bedroom house is well planned with a large great room with west facing windows for afternoon sunsets and winter warmth. There are 4 covered porches, with each bedroom having a walk out sliding door to their own private covered deck. The kitchen is an open concept with exposed beams that shares company with a dining room as part of the open space. Keep out he winter chill and warm your heart  and home with a Quadfrafire brand wood stove. The attic is a full-sized space offering the option to finish it into a third level for even more space for bedrooms, or expand living for the green thumb in the family there is a greenhouse attached to the house next to the attached two car garage. A small vegetable garden is established, and a garden shed is present for storage and organizing all your outdoor equipment. There is a sister property of an additional 74 acres available if you wanted a larger foot print with agriculture and more hunting opportunity. Come home every day to your own lake and start living the dock side life in the country!
