7 acres with cottage offering fields, woods, view and privacy in Afton NY.
This attractive little recreational getaway has the potential to be a year-round residence. The owners have spent much of their time during the last 30 years enjoying the serenity and relaxation here away from their downstate city home. The 24 x 24, 1 and 3/4 story, 1368 sq.ft. cottage is well-built but due to health reasons the owner never finished the interior. 2000 sq. ft. of knotty pine boards are stored upstairs along with a new sink, a ceiling fan, more insulation, tools, etc. All building supplies will convey. Other structures on the site include a 10 x 14 workshop storage building and a 8 x 10 lawn tractor and tool shed.
The owners enjoyed walks in the nearby Melondy Hill State Forest, fishing in the Susquehanna and nearby Hunts Pond State Park. They sat on their deck and watched the deer and turkey that came out of the State forest woods to feed in their 5 acre field. I took a short walk in their section of woods and was surprised to spot 2 fawns peering at me before they scampered off. You can make out their heads and ears in one of my photos. At the end of the day the owners often sat on their deck and admired the beauty of many gorgeous sunsets.
This site is quiet and private, located at the end of a dead end road, but not remote. The small town of Afton is 5 minutes away and Afton is a little less than 3 hours from the George Washington Bridge. Binghamton and Oneonta are around 30 minutes away, and Cooperstown is less than an hour away.
