Four individually offered, incredible riverfront parcels are for sale along the beautiful West Branch of the Oswegatchie River. The Parcel's river frontage offers an entire suite of river attributes - frothy, cascading waterfalls, plunging pools, shimmering ripples, high granite outcroppings, placid flat water – there's a little bit of everything along this stunning river frontage.
Each Parcel also offers a private building site within the sounds of the rushing falls or a direct view of the crashing water.
The parcels are in Fowler and Edwards, St. Lawrence County, New York. This location is at the foothills of the northwestern Adirondacks along the West Branch of the Oswegatchie River. The West Branch is a major tributary of the Oswegatchie, which flows into the main branch near the hamlet of Talcville. The surrounding town of Fowler (population of 2,200) is a mosaic of natural pine and hardwood forests, rural communities, and weekend cabin properties.
St. Lawrence County is the largest county in New York State and is home to the Thousand Islands and St. Lawrence International Seaway, connecting the Great Lakes with the Atlantic. Gouverneur (population 3,949) is a 10-mile drive to the northeast along the Route 58 corridor, while Canton is a 40-minute drive to the north. Syracuse and Rochester lie within a two and three-hour drive, respectively.
There are two access points off Stone Road, a town-maintained artery that connects with nearby County Route 24, also known as Russell Turnpike. The first entry point is a 65’-wide strip of wooded land that is the most likely location to build a future driveway entrance. The second access point is a 35’-wide right-of-way (ROW) that extends approximately 975' from Stone Road to the Property's riverfront area. Electric power and telephone service run along Stone Road.
Two spectacular waterfalls along this part of the Oswegatchie River's West Branch shape this Parcel's unique waterfront opportunity.
The highlight is the 12' high Fullerville Falls, a well-known scenic waterfall in the region. During lower water, the waterfall slips into two sections with a massive bedrock area bisecting each side of the waterfall. When the river runs high, the waterfall stretches the width of the river with a constant mist cloud overhead which can be heard and seen from a distance.
The land has frontage on an additional waterfall and associated rapids +/-700' upstream.
The potential homesite is located off the western access point (closest to County Route 24), roughly 500' from Stone Road. From this site, you can hear the waterfall, and then it's only a short walk down a path to the edge of the falls.
