Set just inside the Adirondack Park, this white pine-dominated forest is an accessible and affordable investment in timber, real estate and recreation.
Providence Forest is a 144-acre recreational woodlot that offers great value in its combination of location, features and recently reduced price. The property is conveniently located within a half hour of Saratoga Springs, one of the region's most attractive communities and a premier summer destination. This popular city is home to a famed horse racing track, numerous boutique spas, many art galleries, the Saratoga Performing Arts Center and a wide array of restaurants and shops. However, the property still offers a private retreat with an Adirondack ambience. The neighborhood is a quiet and rural one in the rolling foothills of northern Saratoga County. Lying just inside the Adirondack Parks' Blue Line, this forest is a classic opportunity for outdoor weekend recreation and cabin development.
The property is accessed by 80 feet of frontage along Drager Road, a low-traffic, town-maintained, four-season road with electric utilities available roadside. The road frontage falls along the property's northwestern corner, with most of the acreage tucked back away from the road frontage, affording privacy and seclusion for a potentially centrally-located cabin site. From the road frontage, a private woods road driveway parallels the northern boundary line for 800 feet before leaving the property and providing access to a neighboring ownership.
With its gentle terrain and natural pine forests, the property is well-suited for a host of outdoor activities - including weekend cabin development, hiking, ATV use, snowmobiling and hunting. Providence's recently thinned timber resource can support a number of long-term ownership goals. Species composition is dominated by a recently thinned white pine component and supported by a mix of maples, hemlock, birches, aspen and beech poles.
