Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because the buyer will have the benefit of a nearly 50% price reduction on a fantastic parcel that is private and secluded, but still within walking distance of the Hamlet of Spencertown. This lovely lot includes mature oak trees, a small stream, rock wall, and seasonal views of distant hills.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

This all wooded property would require ground clearing and grading. A longer driveway would be needed to access the proposed build site. Selective tree clearing would be needed for the build site as well as for the installation of a well and septic system. We would propose a footpath be installed leading to the small stream. Here would be an ideal location for an ADU or other small space like a workshop or studio space.
