Dreamy NYC Escape on 68 Acres

543 South St, Chenango Forks, NY 13746
$329,000

Description

Has sheltering in place in NYC made you dream of having your own private place to escape to? 543 South Street offers that, and more, just 3 hours from NYC. Easy access to picturesque Ithaca and industrial Binghamton, both about 35 minutes in either direction. Situated on 68 acres of open fields, streams, and forest, this spacious home was originally built in 1917 and boasts 2,300 square feet with 6 bedrooms, 2 baths, and 2 charming wood-burning fireplaces. Each room is flooded with abundant natural light from sunrise to sundown. Future residents will take pleasure in peace and solitude from the screened in porch. Plant a field of veggies, or take a hike on your own land, without a soul in sight for miles. There is an old barn on the property that probably needs to be torn down, but the valuable wood can be reclaimed to rebuild or sold for a profit. The home underwent a complete gut renovation down to the bones, in the early 80s and has elegant pegged hardwood oak floors, original hardwood doors and hardware still from that renovation. Let your imagination run wild and create your own slice of tranquility with this ideal offering. If you’re not in the market for a second home, this opportunity serves as a picture perfect investment opportunity. With 6 full bedrooms, the home would make an incredible Bed & Breakfast or Airbnb, in which similar homes in the area are available for prices ranging from $200 – $400 per night. Another vision would be to set up and offer glamping or back country camp sites all set with hiking trails for guests to enjoy on the privacy of the 68 acres. The land is also a hunter’s paradise. There truly are no limits to the possibilities that exist with this property!
