Wentworth Brook offers an appealing 2,316±-acre timberland property in the northern Adirondacks with attractive timber, recreation, and conservation values. The property is situated along the south side of Brainardsville Road (Hwy 24) in Bellmont, New York and embedded within an expansive network of private and public conserved forestland. The property has good access via a gated right-of-way at the end of Atwood Road and multiple points of seasonal access along French Settlement Road. Several branches of the Trout River and Wentworth Brook traverse the property. Topography is generally mild with rolling hills and good operability. The property has above average stocking for the region at 29 gross cords per forested acre. A September 2020 inventory shows 4.4 MBF sawtimber and 20.3 cords per commercial acre heavy to sugar maple, red maple, black cherry, yellow birch, and spruce-fir species. Several areas offer mature hardwood overstory with well-stocked sugar maple regeneration in the understory. Maple sugaring potential contributes to long-term value with an estimated 60+ taps per acre in some stands. Partial enrollment in New York’s favorable 480(a) tax program keeps taxes to a minimum. Malone and Titus Mountain Ski Area are a short 15-20-minute drive west of the property. Approximately 3 hours to Albany/Syracuse, 5 hours to Boston, 6 hours to New York City.
