40 acres Farm with House and Barns in Dryden NY 12 Watros Road


40 acre Farm on the outskirts of the Village of Dryden, Tompkins County.

One-of-a-kind farm located in the Village of Dryden.  This is a unique opportunity to own a farm that is within walking distance to the Village of Dryden.  Owned by the same family for the past 50 years.  Simply a charming 40 acre farm with multiple barns and a 3 bedroom, 1 bath farmhouse.  The main barn was built in 1895 and has been featured in several local newspaper articles over the past 40 years and has been well cared for and could be used as it has in the past.  Other outbuildings include a smaller barn, garage workshop, chicken coop and silo.  The smaller barn was used for housing horses and other livestock and is in good usable condition.  There is water and power in the larger barn.  The farmhouse has had modest updates over the years.  The house has a forced hot air furnace for central heating, dug well and septic system.

When you turn onto the dead end road and approach the house, there is a row of towering pines to greet you and a presence of days gone by.  There is a windmill that is present in the front of the property that is still spinning and could be utilized.  When you walk through the barns and the acreage that surrounds the property you can just feel the history talking to you.

Back in its hay day, this was a fully functioning farm with an apple orchard, multiple fenced pastures for livestock and vegetable gardens.  Most of the orchard plantings are still alive and could be pruned and revived.  There are several other perennial plantings which include rhubarb, concord grapes and raspberries that I found as I explored the grounds.  Surrounding the backyard is a small maple sugar bush that has been used in the past for maple syrup production.  There could be three separate pastures utilized for hay production or livestock on the property.  The fields have not been sprayed with fertilizers or pesticides in over 15 years and could be certified organic.  The property is zoned for agriculture and would make a great central location for a CSA.

The property is located on Watros Road which is a paved dead end road that is maintained by the town.  There is a year-round flowing trout stream that runs through the property known as Fall Creek.  The front pasture has a small pond that was used for watering cattle when the farm was in operation.  This property could be restored to all its glory or the property could be divided for development.  Lots of potential with this rare gem!

Located only a short half mile to the Village and within walking distance of the Dryden Lake Trail System.  25 minutes to Ithaca, and 30 minutes to Cortland and Route 81.
