Nescopeck Mountain is a high quality timberland investment, offering a turn-key, finely-crafted log home. The property lies along the slopes of Nescopeck Mountain, a prominent long-running ridge overlooking the nearby fertile farmlands and small communities of the central Susquehanna River Valley. Nescopeck’s deep, Appalachian-type soils and well-drained slopes are capable of producing some of the region’s best hardwood saw timber, as evidenced by the impressive stem height witnessed on the property. The resource is dominated by hardwood species, primarily oaks with associated other desirable species such as poplar, ash, hickory and red maple. The market climate is such that strong demand for these species currently exists from the many regional forest products manufacturers, mostly in the form of sawmills and log buyers.
Well into the property sits a custom-built, four-season log home providing immediate residential or weekend recreational lodging opportunities. This carefully-designed, 1,500 ft2, 4-bedroom, 2-bath lodge was built within the last decade and its hand-hewn, square log construction with dovetail corners creates a refined and rustic backdrop for weekend getaways. The home features a granite stone fireplace, vaulted ceilings, southern pine floors and a relaxing front porch. The property enjoys excellent access as well as a host of internal trails for recreation or timber management.
