For only the third time in a century, this beautiful property is being offered for sale. It is a rare opportunity to find available such an extraordinary site prominently located on the shores of Lake Champlain. Simply put, Sheldon Farm is a legacy property -- a cherished site to be passed on through the generations.

Owned since 1959 by the Heurich family of Washington, DC, available for purchase for the first time in over half a century is the core of what was once 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.

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.

Two miles south of Essex, NY, and the Essex-Charlotte ferry crossing, Sheldon Farm includes a 3,500 square foot farmhouse renovated with remarkable care and sensitivity, over 60 acres of fields and woodlands, 600' of shoreline with private beach, and over 900' of frontage on a quiet dead-end residential road.

Perfect for a horse farm, the property also includes a pedestrian and equestrian right-of-way for direct access to New York State's Split Rock Mountain Wild Forest just to the south. New York's largest protected forest on Lake Champlain includes a series of trails that go up, over, and along Split Rock Mountain overlooking Lake Champlain, and feature wetlands, little waterfalls, an old quarry, hidden bays, and stunning views.
