Site Description Grasse River Forest is a productive timberland property with versatile ownership options – it can grow northern hardwoods for investment purposes while also offering long river frontage and over two square miles of privacy that anchors its outdoor recreational appeal. The current owners bought this property in 1990 and have been enjoying and actively managing it for nearly 30 years. Their three primary goals have been forestry, wildlife habitat and recreation, and they’ve spent countless weekends at the cabin over the years, enjoying the land’s solitude and natural beauty. Timber The property has been professionally managed for years and is enrolled in the American Tree Farm System. The current ownership’s management objectives have been timber production, habitat and recreation. The property has a favorable portfolio of northern hardwood species including sugar maple, red maple, the birches, ash and basswood. Water Resources The property has a mile and a half of water frontage on the Grasse River, a major tributary of the nearby St. Lawrence, which courses and meanders along the far eastern boundary. This river is known as a good fishery for smallmouth bass, brown trout and brook trout. It adds a nice water element to a large envelope of forest land that can be enjoyed for outdoor recreation and simultaneously managed for long-term timber returns.

Saratoga Springs and Glens Falls are both 35 miles to the southeast. These communities are the regional population centers for the southern Adirondacks, providing an array of shopping amenities, health care facilities, entertainment, food and lodging. The nearest airport is in Albany, 90 minutes to the south. New York City and Boston are both a 4-hour drive to the south and east respectively.

Site Description Around the main lodge are nicely landscaped grounds with perennial beds, stone walls and paths, and pastoral views of the surrounding meadows. The property’s terrain is shaped by its proximity to a large hardwood ridge to the north that runs diagonally from Bear Pen’s Peak to nearby St. John’s Lake. The property lies within a south-facing, hardwood basin along the lower and mid slopes of this ridge. Long, seasonal views of Vermont can be enjoyed during the fall and winter months from the ridgetop. Trails throughout the forest offer hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and birding possibilities, The adjacent public lands further expand these opportunities, deepen the property’s privacy and protect it from future development on two sides. Timber The property’s diverse northern forest can meet a variety of future management objectives including firewood, high-quality sawtimber production, wildlife management, recreation and water quality. Many of the property’s natural hardwood stands were established in the mid-20th century as the land reverted from agricultural use back to natural forests. These forests range in age from 50-70 years old, with a younger 20 to 30-year age class in some stands as a result of harvesting during that time frame. Major species include sugar maple, yellow birch, beech, aspen, oak and ash. House/Buildings Constructed in 1996 by a local craftsman and home builder, the property’s year-round residence is a thoughtful reinterpretation of a traditional cape with the feeling of an Adirondack lodge. The interior offers a spacious 2,160 square feet of living space in an open floor plan concept. The lodge was specifically sited to take advantage of the afternoon sunlight that graces the site, providing a warm and light-filled interior that is comfortable throughout the year. Beautiful interior details provide an elegantly rustic ambiance. Stamped concrete floors resemble tile, hand-crafted full-log rafters make up the ceiling and a variety of wood species have been used for trim, cabinets and other details. The lodge is divided into two wings. The wing to the right includes an open-concept kitchen, living room and dining room, centered around a beautiful granite fireplace. Upstairs are two bedrooms and farther to the right is a generous screened porch with kitchen facilities, perfect for outdoor meals and relaxing. The wing to the left is a master suite set up with a bedroom, bath and studio loft. The south-facing windows throughout the home provide close views of the nearby meadow and long, mountain views on the horizon. The lodge has been well-cared for with many recent improvements, creating a relatively low-maintenance home in move-in-ready condition. Two large barns, currently outfitted for horses, offer a wealth of possibilities. One of the barns is an historic 1840s vintage timber frame building that is approximately 28’ x 38’ and recently received a new roof. The newer barn has 3 horse stalls, a wash area, its own tack room and a hay loft. This building has electric and water service and is approximately 38’ x 38’. A small, separate tack shed sits near the newer barn.

Pleasant Brook
Franklin, New York
718.00 acres
Introduction Fountains is pleased to introduce the 718-acre Pleasant Brook Forest, a private and secluded recreational timber property tucked away in the Northern Adirondack towns of Brandon and Santa Clara. The current ownership has held this property in their family for 30 years; now it is time to start a new stewardship legacy here. Highlights include: A well-appointed, off-grid hunting cabin tucked away in the center of the property. It can serve as a turn-key basecamp for weekend retreats or can support future hunting lease opportunities. A remote, quiet setting in the northern Adirondacks for those seeking solitude and respite from the daily grind. However, the property is still within 30-40 minutes of regional population centers like Potsdam, Massena and Malone. A long term, recently thinned maple, birch and cherry timber resource that is perfectly positioned for volume and value growth over the coming years. Over a mile and a quarter of scenic stream frontage along Pleasant Brook, an attractive tributary of the nearby St Regis East Branch. A majority of the property (668 acres) rests outside the Adirondack Park’s Blue line, and thus falls outside the Park Agency’s jurisdiction, a key consideration for future cabin or cottage building options. Location Pleasant Brook is located in a quiet corner of the northern Adirondacks within arm’s reach of the St Regis River East Branch corridor, five or six miles upstream from nearby St Regis Falls. This scenic landscape lies along the transition line between heavily blanketed Adirondack forests to the south and the rolling St. Lawrence Valley to the north and west. Potsdam (population 17,000) is the regional educational hub of northern New York and is situated 28 miles west of the property. Malone (population 5,900) lies 20 miles to the north, while Massena (population 10,800) is situated 30 miles northwest along the St. Lawrence Seaway. Access Access is gained via 1,375 feet of frontage along Red Tavern Road (CR 14), which fronts the property’s southern boundary. There is also 800 feet of frontage along Everton Road (town maintained) in this same vicinity. From Everton Road, 5,700’ of frontage exists along the private, gated Eddy Road which is the main entry road into the property and was graveled in 2009 and used as a hauling road during the last timber thinning. Eddy Road runs northward for three quarters of a mile to the main hunting camp, broadly paralleling Pleasant Brook along the way. Site Description For those seeking a large recreational property for snowmobiling, ATV riding, hunting, fishing, and weekend getaways, Pleasant Brook Forest is worth a look. The property spans over a square mile of northern Adirondack forest and has a little bit of everything – a stream, a cabin, a good road system, and a diverse mix of habitat and woodlot opportunities. House/Buildings The property is outfitted with two rustic hunting camps and a vacant structure near the gravel pit at the south end of Eddy Road. The main cabin, situated centrally within the property on an overlook above the Pleasant Brook flow, appears ready for off-grid weekend retreats. There’s a woodstove, gas cooking stove, bunks, a front porch overlooking the surrounding valley, and an open floor plan that can comfortably sleep 4-5 people. The second camp is situated in the southwest corner of the property near Red Tavern Road and doesn’t appear to have been occupied in many years. It is also outfitted simply and, with work, could be retro-fitted to serve as a second camp building.
