203 acre Finger Lakes Farm with House, Barns and Fenced Pastures in Cortland NY 842 Cutler School Road

One-of-a-kind sprawling 203 acre Finger Lakes Farm!  This property has it all spanning from the valley bottom where it touches the Fall Creek trout stream to the hilltop pastures.  This is an amazing property with so much to offer!

The farmhouse is a circa early 1800s home with 2,100 sq. ft., 4 bedrooms and 1 bathroom.  The home offers a formal dining room, 1st floor master bedroom, 1st floor laundry, large country kitchen, 3 bedrooms on the second floor, generously sized living room, and a two-car attached garage.  A good majority of the interior of the home is unchanged and in need of updating.  The main heat source for the home is a forced hot air furnace.

The farmhouse is situated in the center of the property and the land extends across the road so your view will never be interrupted.  There are multiple outbuildings including a late 1800s dairy barn with post and beam construction that has 64 tie stalls and the original milk house.  There is plenty of storage for hay and equipment with a massive hay loft, 74 x 40 pole barn, and main barn with a large addition.  There is a story-and-a-half barn directly behind the house that has an open side shed-type addition that is used to store round bales.  The main barn has a corral area for cattle, and there is a fenced laneway that leads all the way up the hillside to the back fenced pastures.  Across the road are additional fenced pastures with pressure treated posts and 3 strand high tensile fencing.  The acreage consists of approximately 132 acres of open farmland that includes 70 acres high tensile fenced pastures, 3 fields planted in hay totaling 15 acres, 47 acres in corn and rotational crops, and the remaining is woods and hedgerows.  Majority of the soils on the property are desirable including Langford and Erie silt loam soils.  Soil maps can be sent upon request.  There is an abundance of hard maple trees that could be utilized for a future maple sugar operation.

The property borders Fall Creek which is a year-round flowing stream known for its trout fishing, and a small seasonal stream that runs down the hill behind the house.  There is a drilled well for a water supply and a recently certified septic system.  Behind the main barn is a small gravel bank that has been used in the past to keep the farm roads in good usable shape.  This property has amazing diversity with well-drained tillable soils, creek bottom wooded forest hillsides, thick pine groves, fenced pastures, and a year-round trout stream.  Intact farms like this one do not come along very often.  Additional land is available within a mile of the property if more land is desired.  This would make a great property for a cattle operation or other farm ventures.  Located in the Homer School District.
