Situated just 45 minutes from bustling Syracuse, and 10 short minutes from Oneida Lake, this densely forested, 30 acre property is nestled 4 miles from the quaint Queen Village of Camden, New York.
From a county-maintained, paved road it is 150 yards to the 30 x 50 2-story barn & shop built in 1987. Adjacent to the barn is a cleared 1 acre area suitable for organic gardening. A nearby shed provides storage for gardening supplies. Utilities are underground so as not to detract from the sylvan setting. Secluded but not remote, there are 29 acres for mixed hardwoods and firs (not logged since 2001). The driveway continues to this spacious Savannah-Model DELTEC home with two levels - each over 1000 square feet.
The upper-level is an open floor plan with a high, domed ceiling, plenty of custom-built bookshelves, a modern kitchen with a Redwood Burl Breakfast Bar and a pantry. Recessed lighting and a second gas-log fireplace provide a warm ambience on those brisk fall evenings. French doors give way onto a spacious deck. Off the main room is a second bedroom and a guest bath which contain a vintage claw-foot tub, pedestal sink and pull chain toilet. Both the kitchen and the bedroom have skylights adding natural light and depth. An iron spiral-stairway connects both house levels. This home is additionally well-heated if needed by an outside Taylor wood boiler as well as a forced-air propane furnace.
The first-level bedroom includes a warming gas-log fireplace, walk-in closet, a master bath with a luxurious whirlpool tub, over-sized shower with old-style vanity and mirror. Both the bedroom and the bathroom have ceramic tile floor with radiant floor heating, cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Sliding glass doors open onto its own private deck flanked with walled rock gardens either side. This level also has a well-lit office space and a laundry area.
The nearby Barge Canal provides deep-water access to the St. Lawrence Seaway, the Great Lakes and the Hudson River. Only 10 miles away is Becks Grove Airport, privately owned but open to the public. The famous Adirondack Park, at over 6 million acres, the largest in the contiguous United States, is just over an hour away. Nearby recreational activities abound. Canoeing, Kayaking, Hiking and Fishing are right next door in summer. Cross-country Skiing, Snowshoeing and Ice Fishing are yours all winter. Birds and abundant wildlife surround you throughout the year. Wild Turkey, Heron, Geese, Ducks all appear regularly. Deer wander by each day, winter and summer.
