Dunkley Road Forest offers significant privacy, gentle terrain, well-drained soils and recently-thinned hardwood and hemlock forests that can be enjoyed throughout the year. It is perfectly suited for buyers seeking a large weekend getaway property that can be divided for multiple family members or friends. The property consists of two individually deeded, surveyed parcels that each have their own access points for home site development and subdivision opportunities. Within 10 minutes of Gore Mountain Ski Center, the property is close to vast recreational resources, has favorable zoning and was recently surveyed.
One access includes 1,600 feet of frontage on C. Dunkley Road, a gravel, four-season town road. The property lies along both sides of Dunkley Road for most of its length. This provides a lot of privacy and limits neighbors to a handful at the end of the road beyond the property bounds. The other access is by a deeded right-of-way extending from Thissell. There are several internal forestry trails which feather out into the property and provide outdoor recreational opportunities such as hiking, ATVs, horseback riding and hunting.
The hardwood and evergreen forest was thinned recently and consists of a mix of pole-sized maples, birches, ash, beech and hemlock. It is now an ‘open forest', with a good trail network, that is easy to get around for recreational pursuits. The recent thinning will result in excellent wildlife habitat for deer over the next couple of years as young shoots and blackberry plants continue to develop. Species composition includes a naturally diverse suite of classic Adirondack species - white and yellow birch, sugar and red maples, beech, white ash, aspen, hemlock, spruce and balsam fir.
