Property: 178 acres with about 130 acres of woods; 23 acres of brush and wetlands; 25 acres of fields, pastures and home site (home, garage, outbuildings, lawn). Fields bordered by stone fences dating from the early 1800s. Location: 3.5 miles from Interstate Highway 81 North. Within one mile of the western portion of the 8645-acre State-owned Happy Valley Wildlife Management Area. In continuous ownership by the same family for over 150 years.
Wood lot managed for decades for sustainable forestry with periodic selective harvesting and thinning of hardwoods (black cherry, maples, birch and ash) and hemlock. Trails provide access throughout much of the property. A 4+acre grove of sugar bush maples regularly tapped for maple sap.
Woods, wetlands and ponds host a healthy array of birds and wildlife. Spruce, Scotch pine and hemlock groves provide winter greenery, deer shelter and pleasant aesthetics.
Woods and fields have been largely pesticide-free since the 1970s and would be candidates for organic certification.

Northern portion of the property straddles about a 1000-foot portion of Porter Creek which has beaver
ponds and waterfowl habitat.
