Balsam Woods at Merrillsville
We invite you to come and live in one of the Adirondacks newest woodland communities. Enjoy life in a quiet green lifestyle in a private wooded environment with restrictive covenants designed to protect and preserve this unique community and its rural setting.
Once a 19th century thriving rural hamlet, Merrillsville, located in the Town of Franklin near the intersection of NYS Route 3 and County Route 26, is now being reborn as a 21st century community for those who enjoy quiet life in a peaceful rural wooded setting.

The diversely wooded homestead lots range in size from 12 to 70 acres and afford you the opportunity to create your own family estate in the location of your choice in the 350-acre Phase 1 of this vast preserve. A new 60-foot-wide, two lane, gravel road, extending 1 1/2 miles into the pristine forestland provides access to all of the lots. All electric and phone services have been installed underground along the road. For the active outdoor enthusiast, there are 1000s of acres of state forest preserve in the immediate area with miles of trails for hiking, rivers, streams and ponds for fishing, groomed trails for snowmobiling and hunting throughout.
While you have the opportunity to choose your home design and builder, we will be happy to recommend capable contractors for every phase of your construction project. Owner financing possible for qualified buyers with 25% down payment. Inquire about terms and details.
