Hickory Island on the Erie Canal is For Sale!
53+ acre privately owned island is being offered for the 1st time in over 30 years. Located on the historic Erie Canal and bordered by the Seneca River in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State, this island was created almost 200 years ago when the 363 mile canal was constructed between Albany and Buffalo.
You can travel to the island by boat up the Hudson River all the way from NYC. Today’s waterway allows you to travel into Seneca and Cayuga Lake and also Lake Ontario and Lake Erie and beyond. The island can be your own wildlife sanctuary inhabited only by deer, turkey and various waterfowl.
It contains a rich mixture of woodland and grassland and has several private building sites with an elevation providing great views of the canal. In the past the island was used for family recreation and livestock grazing. Only a 30 minute drive from Syracuse, 1 hour drive from Ithaca and Rochester, 2 hours from Buffalo, less than 3 hours from Albany and less than 5 hours from NYC. It’s only a mile from a marina for easy access by boat and a landing strip if you’re a pilot.
Great property to build your summer home, weekend retreat or to diversify your investment portfolio.
Offered at $328,900. Call Carl Snyder 607-280-5770 for more information and to schedule a private showing of this unique property.
