A Capital Region woodlot with well-stocked timber, recreation, and potential weekend cabin options, centrally located between Troy and Williamstown, MA.
Grafton Forest is a classic recreational property located within 20 minutes of Albany’s Capital Region and within an easy 3-hour drive of New York City and Boston. The nearby village of Grafton is a classic rural hamlet with a general store, fire department, post office and town hall. Grafton Lakes State Park is located within 2 miles of the property and hosts 13 lakes within its 2,000-acre footprint. Route 2, also known as the Mohawk Trail, connects the village of Grafton with regional communities such as Williamstown, MA (17 miles east) and Troy (12 miles west).
Access is provided by a gated woods road that originates along the property’s 25 feet of paved frontage on South Road. From the town highway, the entry road extends for 800 feet along gently-sloping ground to the main portion of the property. This well-established woods road with a packed gravel base can be easily upgraded into a future driveway to a cabin or home site. Electric and phone services are available along South Road.
Grafton Forest offers a fine opportunity for long-term woodlot investment, outdoor recreation, and future weekend home options. Good access, gentle topography and close proximity to the Capital Region support all of these uses. There are several potential building site locations which could be developed within a few hundred feet of the current entrance road. Topography is gentle to nearly flat and the land affords easy recreational access for snowshoeing, hiking, hunting, ATV use or cross country skiing.
