Bellmont Forest is a classic, blended timber and recreation property in the scenic Owls Head region of the northern Adirondacks. The property features long road frontage with multiple access points along three town roads, gentle terrain, diverse forest composition and a convenient location just 7 miles outside of Malone. This northern most portion of the Adirondack region is a quilt of natural spruce, pine plantations and young hardwood forests. Nearby is the Salmon River, well-known for its excellent sportfishing, as well as numerous lakes within a 30-mile radius. For snowmobilers, there are over 250 miles of well-maintained back country trails which inter-connect with Canadian trail systems to the north. Titus Mountain Ski Center is within 2 miles of the property, where skiers enjoy 47 trails, 10 lifts and night skiing.
Access to the property is outstanding. Three boundaries of the property front town-maintained roads providing over 9,000 feet of total frontage. Internally, an established network of forestry trails provides easy entry for snowmobiling, hunting, hiking and forest management. The property is a diverse fabric of hardwood and spruce stands, beaver marshes, a year-round stream and neatly manicured pine plantations paving the way for multiple ownership goals including weekend wilderness getaways, hunting, hiking, skiing, snowmobiling and long-term tree farm management. Terrain is mostly flat to gently rolling, which makes for easy recreational access.
Bellmont offers a young, low-maintenance forest resource that is naturally diverse. The professionally-managed timber component is developing well and is ideally positioned for steady value growth over the next fifteen years. Property-wide, species composition is evenly distributed between softwoods and hardwoods, with primary species including red maple, red pine, white pine, spruce fir, black cherry, hemlock and a host of others. Capital Timber Value is estimated to be $86,300 or $274/acre.
