Introduction

Fountains is pleased to offer 36-acre South Schroon Forest near Schroon Lake Village in the southern Adirondacks. With close proximity to the Northway, this recreational property is perfect for weekend getaways.

Location

South Schroon Forest is an attractive recreational woodlot property located conveniently near Schroon Lake Village in the southern Adirondacks. The surrounding landscape lies just west of Schroon Lake and is situated within a few short minutes of the Adirondack Northway. Nine-mile Schroon Lake is one of the Southern Adirondacks most popular waterfront vacation destinations and hosts a variety boating, swimming and fishing opportunities throughout the year.

Access

The property extends from the terminus of Pottersville Road and is accessed via a fifty-foot wide, deeded right-of-way that parallels the Northway. Pottersville Road is a short, four-season, town-maintained road that ends 1,000 feet north of the property boundary. The right-of-way has not been developed into a driveway to date. The neighboring landowner has an existing driveway and has allowed the current owners to use a portion of it in the past. Property viewings need to be accompanied by the listing agent.

Site Description

The property’s attractive pine, cedar and birch forests make it a classic recreational retreat property with a well-stocked woodlot component.

Most of the acreage sits along gently-sloping terrain east of the Northway and offers a number of recreational opportunities. Upon entering the property from the right-of-way, the land gradually slopes up to the east toward Schroon Lake. With modest clearing, an off-grid weekend cabin site could be tucked up on the hill, or a small envelope could be opened up for a camper site.
