Homestead For Sale * Copenhagen, NY
Comfortable off-grid living
Solar, rocket mass heater, outbuildings
Surrounded by State land!
1255 Pinckney Road, Copenhagen, NY
62.6 acres, mostly wooded, semi cleared around the two camps with a 5 year old year-round solar camp, overlooking a creek, 1100 sq ft., open floor plan, 1 bedroom, his and hers closets, knotty pine tongue and groove with solid cherry trim.
Front camp is sold as is, could be brought back to livable for rental or second family camp.
Located on four-wheeler road, groomed snowmobile road in winter.
No neighbors, state land all the way around. Deer, turkeys, lynx, grouse and bear all call this area home.  Hunt your own land, or the thousands of acres of state land that surround it.

2 creeks run through property, the main camp overlooks one of them.
3 wells on property, 1 drilled for primary home, 2 dug wells (not used)
900 gallons water storage, pressure tank and new jet pump
new pump in well
main camp is wired for 110 and runs on solar and back up generator
24 volt system with 4 batteries, generates plenty power
septic and flush toilet
on demand hot water heater
pebble style rocket mass heater keeps us nice and warm while using lots less firewood
propane cook stove
antique wood cook stove (not piped through roof yet)
kitchen has big pantry unit plus lots of storage space
refrigerator and freezer
dish TV service installed

This place has everything needed to make life comfortable for you. We lived year round there for 4 winters. We did all the work building the home and harvesting our firewood, lots of work for 2 senior citizens.
My vision for this place would have been to have a root cellar dug, have the creek widened to form a pond. I wanted to pump creek water to a 300 gallon tote on a stand to use that water to flush the toilet.
I wanted to finish clearing and seeding the front yard to encourage the deer, because we have water and lots of apple trees we can often see them, but with grazing in the front yard it would be even better.

Asking price is $120,000 or best offer, motivated seller, could split closing costs to move a sale along.
