270 Adk Acres in Jay with Dramatic Mountain Views and Wilderness Setting

270 Acres - $ 199,000 - SOLD

Located near the High Peaks region, these 270 Adk acres are the perfect place for an Adirondack wilderness cabin in a secluded setting at the end of the road. The property features a building site that has extraordinary, dramatic views of Whiteface Mt, the Sentinel Range, and a number of other peaks. The cabin site sits at the bottom of a long horseshoe shaped ridge that encompasses this large acreage. Access trails that could be used for hiking, skiing, or ATVs circle the property, running along the ridge tops, giving breathtaking views of unbroken, wild mountain country.

The acreage is accessed by a private road that leads about a mile from the end of the maintained town road. The land was logged a number of years ago, leaving a mix of sizes and species of hardwood trees. This is good deer and bear habitat in an area that is known for producing big bucks. Essex County is the top producer of Boone and Crockett bucks in New York State. The property borders 600 acres of public land open to hunting, in addition to the nearby Jay Mt Wilderness Area (8000 acres).

For the skier and winter enthusiasts, Whiteface and Lake Placid are less than 1/2 hour away. Lake Placid also has a public beach and boat launch for summer activities.​ This is a one of a kind parcel of Adirondack land for living and experiencing mountain wilderness and raw beauty.
