The 295-acre Flagstaff Mountain Forest is a versatile, large-acreage recreational property in the northern Adirondack town of Chesterfield. The property is close proximity to the Adirondack Northway at Keeseville, making it a convenient location for easy weekend travel to and from regional cities. There is good access from paved, year-round road frontage on Auger Lake Road, enhancing the possibility for future home sites. For deeper seclusion, a gated, deeded right-of-way connects to a private, off-grid cabin envelope tucked well within the heart of the land. As far as amenities, there is a little bit of everything - gentle terrain, timber, meadows, year-round stream frontage and hunting. The forest has been professionally managed resulting in a quality oak and white pine timber resource that is poised for steady value growth for the next owners.
The property is set within a gently sloping, east-facing bowl tucked just south of the summit of Flagstaff Mountain. It has several interesting land features, including well-drained upland hardwood sites, scenic hemlock forests, towering pines, and Mud Brook, a year-round mountain stream whose headwaters flow through the property and create 2-3 beaver pond sanctuaries. There are numerous forestry trails with great access throughout the property to explore with ATVs, cross country skis, snowmobiles or afoot.
Flagstaff Mountain’s forest component is a versatile long-term resource which can be managed for wildlife, recreation, open space and forest management. Species composition is made up of red and white oak, white pine, the birches, hemlock, aspen, beech and ash. It is perfectly suited for a long term buyer who is thinking of acquiring a nice recreational property and a smart land investment, which will steadily appreciate in value over time and can be eventually passed down to their heirs.
