THE PREMIER PRIMARY RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT IN THE ONEONTA AREA.
Oneonta is a college town, Hartwick and the State University of NY contribute to the financial stability of this local market and if you have children destined for college and want to get outta Dodge, this is da place to do it.
This prime 50 acres fronts on Canterbury Woods Road, a Town road I built back in the 80s, and it is just 1-3 miles east of great shopping, entertainment and restaurants and most of the new businesses mentioned below for those ladies who are squeemish about living in the country, and only two miles to the Interstate 88 on and off ramp.
However, do not let that fool you. This property is in the woods, totally private and you can even hunt in your own back yard and get a doe permit.
The terrain varies from level to slightly sloping up from the Town road, levels out and rolls uphill and downhill and becomes mountainous for the back acres where the big bucks hang out. You are uphill from the beautiful Prosser Hollow Creak and overlook it and relax to the wonderful sounds of flowing white water cascading waterfalls from the Pross
er Hollow Trout Creek. Bring your fishing pole, this is the real deal.
There are several springs that run year round that would supply more than adequate drinking water for your home or homes as there are many building spots on this land.
The land is primarily oak, cherry, maple, pine and hemlock forest that expose nice mountain views especially in the upper sections of the property and beautiful views overlooking the Prosser Hollow Trout Creek in the lower section and there are a variety of building sites.
This property is fronts on a Town maintained road and although it is out in the woods, to get to it you drive on a paved State and Town roads through Canterbury Woods, the premier primary residential development in the Oneonta area.
Technically speaking, Canterbury Woods is in the Town of Davenport and in the Oneonta School District. So if you have school age children, you have a choice. However, the Davenport School is 25 minutes away by bus versus 7 minutes away to the Oneonta Schools and there are several to choose from.
Oneonta schools are more attractive to executives, doctors, business people and others who have built homes at Canterbury woods who do not want to live in a city environment to take advantage of a better school system, yet want all the conveniences of a city close by.
Commuting to New York, Albany or Binghamton is easy by Air from the Oneonta Municipal Airport and you can check them out at http://www.airnav.com/airport/N66.
A million dollar home was recently custom build a thousand feet away from the 50 acres for the owner of Brook’s Barbeque, a great local restaurant that brings in people from a 40 mile radius.
Utilities including electric and telephone are available within 600 ft and New York State Gas and Electric, the electric company gives you 500 ft free.
If you are buying to have and to hold and are a hunter, you will not be disappointed. There are some trophy deer on this land. This is an investment you can enjoy not only for hunting, but fishing in the Prosser Hollow Creek, which is on your property but also in the 100 ft. wide Charlotte Creek to which you get Deeded Rights for swimming, fishing, canoeing several miles away.
Five ski mountains are within 60 minutes. The quiet setting may help you truly become a child of the universe or perhaps even find the meaning of life.
