Tub Mill Pond is a rare Adirondack wilderness water property, featuring a 57-acre private lake, 5 wilderness ponds and close proximity to State Forest Preserve lands to the east. The central water body is a compelling, transparent lake offering spectacular mountain vistas, unbroken forested shoreline and granite outcrops sliding to the water’s edge. Its high water quality provides a superior swimming opportunity while the lake’s large size permits power boating. Four small islands compliment the lake’s scenic integrity. A level bluff with southerly exposure at the lake’s northern end offers an ideal home site, providing long views up the lake. Several other bluffs nearby provide additional level building sites, furthering development opportunities.
The property is located in the northern Adirondack region of New York, a rural, mountainous and predominantly forested area. Situated within a 20-minute drive of the Adirondack Northway (Interstate 87), the property is easily accessible from major population centers throughout the northeast. Nearly 4,500’ of frontage along a paved, county road provides several driveway opportunities and electric power and telephone service exist at the property’s northeastern corner.
The property’s exceptional water resources are complemented by a richly diverse northern-forest ecosystem. Dominated by multi-aged softwood stands, the forest provides simultaneous benefits for wildlife, recreation, and forest management objectives. With an attractive species mix, adequate stocking levels, and favorable diameter class distribution, the timber amenity represents a notable component of value to the next ownership.
