FOR ONLY THE THIRD TIME IN OVER A CENTURY, this rare, prominent and spectacular property on Lake Champlain is offered for sale. Originally a grand, prize-winning Ayrshire cattle and timber farm established in the early 20th century by Henry Lee Higginson, financier and founder of the Boston Symphony. Kate Smith stayed there. Babe Ruth was a visitor. And, Gov. Mario Cuomo chose Sheldon Farm as the site for the signing ceremony for his legacy Environmental Protection Fund. Simply put, Sheldon Farm is a legacy property -- a cherished site to be passed on through the generations.

TWO MILES SOUTH OF HISTORIC ESSEX, NY, and the Essex-Charlotte ferry crossing, and in the shadow of Split Rock Mountain Wild Forest, Sheldon Farm features a fully renovated 3,500 sq. ft. radiant-heated farmhouse, 63 ac. of fields & woodlands, 600’ of shoreline with private beach, 900’ of frontage on a quiet dead-end residential road, alarm system, and high speed Internet & WiFi system covering all buildings.

SHELDON FARM also includes a 3,800 sq. ft. “calf barn” (great for a studio or horse barn), 1,340 sq. ft. “hog barn,” 1,240 sq. ft. “hay barn,” and new 1,280 sq. ft. heated garage & workshop. All buildings have been freshly painted, and are inter-connected via a system of underground communications & power conduits. There‘s a completely new spring-fed water distribution system. And, 2 sheds, a half-acre pond, 22 sugar maples around the driveway, & 99 white cedars lining the farm road!

Whether used as a year-round home or a seasonal getaway, each successive generation will fondly remember and cherish their time spent here on Lake Champlain in the Adirondacks, and will treasure the opportunity to pass on this irreplaceable life experience to their next generation.

THIS HISTORIC PROPERTY IS READY TO MOVE INTO FOR SEASONAL AND YEAR-ROUND ENJOYMENT!
