Property Description
Residential, Other - Wilmington, NY This is an unparalleled opportunity to own 18.5 acres of Adirondack paradise featuring 2400 feet of stunning Ausable River frontage! Imagine early morning fishing trips along the river or sunset walks through trails on your own private land - it's all here. This property includes a three-bedroom original main home and a one-bedroom cottage so you can make your getaway a family affair. Situated on a gentle bend in the river the main home has beautiful views of nature from every level and offers a private retreat away from it all. One could envision building new on this site with its close proximity to the water's edge or with some loving restoration of the existing structure one could update it to make it their own. The cottage is move-in ready with a nice open floor plan, providing great space for overflow guests or could be used as a rental to generate some extra income. Additional buildings include a seasonal bunkhouse and a 2-car garage. This unique piece of property includes an island with potential for a conservation easement and tax benefits. The land also includes a peninsula that is adjacent to the Town of Wilmington Beach with an opportunity for favorable and continued sharing of the beach frontage. This rare offering is located in the Lake Placid Central School District, and is walkable to Wilmington amenities. Whiteface Mountain Ski Resort is just a few miles away, hiking and biking trails are nearby, and the Olympic Village of Lake Placid is reached by scenic drive along the Ausable River. This is a dream for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers alike, providing an opportunity to get closer to nature and take part in outdoor activities like kayaking, fishing or hiking. With so much potential, this could be the waterfront home of your dreams.
