Overview

The Historic Peacock Farm is for sale for the third time in a century. We believe it may once have been part of the Abolitionist John Brown’s community to emancipate & it is now one of the oldest, surviving residential structures in North Elba. If you want to own one of the most iconic spots in the Adirondacks, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. On 30 acres of mixed woods & fields, the farmhouse is a classic from the 1800s, complete w/ a massive woodburning kitchen stove (as well as modern appliances). There is a period horse barn that has ample storage for hay & other supplies & a workshop for tools & equipment. Connecting directly to the Uihlein trails & surrounded by forever wild land, you can hike, bike & cross country ski & be the first to break snow! Your pristine, private view will NEVER change. Literally minutes from Main Street Lake Placid, w/ Mirror Lake & Lake Placid, restaurants & shops, this ideal location is among the most desired in the region.
