Eleven Darling Road features an immaculately-maintained, ranch-style home surrounded by 70 private acres along a low-traffic road. Located in the southern Adirondacks region, the property is less than an hour from Saratoga Springs and Glens Falls and within four hours of Boston and New York City.
Constructed in 2008, the house is a comfortable and practical 1,500 sq ft and would function equally well as a year-round home or as a weekend retreat. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a propane fireplace in a beautiful stone surround, a modern kitchen, lots of storage space, a full basement with drive-in bay, a separate 3-car garage/storage facility and a whole house generator. Extremely well-cared for, the house can be moved into immediately upon closing.
The land surrounding the current home is a scenic mix of hardwoods, pines, spruce plantations and apple trees. One of the most compelling features of the property is a private overlook along Smears Creek, accessed by a short walk through the forest. The property’s pleasant terrain is easily accessible via numerous forest trails that can be used immediately for hiking, hunting, skiing and tree farm management. While most of the forest established naturally, some portions of the land were planted to Norway spruce, scotch pine and red pine several decades ago. The forest is at a point in its cycle where it is growing very well and will continue to do so over the coming decades. Near-term, value-added land use enhancements for the next ownership could include apple tree pruning and release, establishment of wildlife clearings and firewood cuttings.
