A perennial stream runs through the historic meadows of this ancient Catskill Mountain farm. One of the very few larger private ponds within the Catskill Mountain region is the Butternut Pond with 8.5+acres, within the top 20 for size and it has a year around protected trout stream through the property. This listing includes only about 2.4+- acres of water surface. The Butternut Pond (some call it a lake) is the marvelous gem of this property nestled at the base of Ticeteneyck Mountain. The pond has matured to become a quiet bass fishing secret and attracts many species of birds and abundant wildlife. There is a perimeter trail passing by natural artesian springs that feed the pond. There are abundant fish and wildlife on the property with room for canoeing, swimming, hiking or just relaxing on your private estate in this pleasant recreation area. This land has secluded access with more than half the boundary being either State Forest or a large private estate. The Butternut Pond is positioned against the 500+ acres of State protected Forever Wild parkland above on Ticeteneyck Mountain assuring your access to a large wilderness and can be used for recreation as if they were your own private preserve.
The western 2.4 acre portion of the 8.5 acre pond is included with this offering, with the balance held in a family estate. The larger pond will be available for use with a Recreation Agreement.
