Riverfront Organic Farmstead With Rental Or B & B

4979 Rt. 28, Newport, NY 13416


I went to visit my friend, who is offering his farm for sale. This place has so much to talk about it is hard to choose where to start. I brought along my swimming trunks as it was a warm August day. I guess it is best to start with a swim in the river that has app. 800' border on this 11.8 ac property. It is called the West Canada creek. A year round stocked trout stream which is the outflow from Hinckley reservoir, a major lake about 15 miles upstream. The stream is used for tubing and kayaks along with fishing in this part of the stream. There is a picnic area near the water with table and shed for shelter or toys. The property is part of a larger farm that was divided off some years ago. The house is a converted equipment barn that was made into a 3 bedroom home on second floor. The current owner converted the third floor in to a 2 bedroom and 1 bedroom apartments about 6 years ago. He is a contractor by trade so it was a totally new well built conversion fully insulated all new wiring pluming walls and windows. He has added a 5000 watt solar panel system that is on a new wood shed which includes a woodsplitter and a supply of wood. It also has a new wood burning furnace that is tied into the oil hot water baseboard heating. New hot water tanks for each floor. On the exterior is has a new roof and new vinyl siding with insulation board. The windows on the 3rd floor are new and are in good shape on the 2nd. The basement is a 1 stall garage and workshop, along with a walled off utilities room. The barns consist of a 44x28 two story barn with a 2 double horse stalls on one side and an enclosed room for smaller animals with cement floor. There is a hay loft up top, and a fenced in yard. A second 80x30 one story barn with cement floor for equipment or more animals. There is a good size shed for chickens a cement block shed for potato storage, a 32x14 woodshed, spring house and shed down by the river. The land could easley be certified organic as the owner does not use chemical fertilizer or pesticides. There are 5 garden plots being cultivated now that has very rich soil. There is established asparagus, black raspberries, currants, horseradish, rhubarb, and some new apple trees. Along the river is about a 5 acre field for pasture with some fencing. Water is plentiful; a strong spring feeds the house. There are other springs that fed two ponds the larger pond is over your head in the middle with crystal clear cold water. Trout? The pond is always overflowing through a pipe. Waterpower? There is a drainage ditch that runs through the property that is full of watercress. There is just about everything you need here for a homestead to live off of the land and have fun enjoying the river year-round. It has income from rentals or room for a large family. This property is located just outside the village of Middleville NY on Rt. 28 with good traffic for a produce stand. Within 10 miles to the Adirondack park with endless recreational lakes and trails or access to the NY State Thruway I-90. For more information call Terry Marrone at 315-823-2838.
