Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it offers 10 acres of gorgeous sloping and level land with southerly views, right alongside 342 acres of untouched DEP land that is accessible by a deeded switchback.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

This project would begin with additional planning since the property is accessed by a right of way and it best suited for an off-grid utility system. The existing ROW road access will bring you to the foot of the parcel. From this point picking a path to establish the driveway would be required. Clearing and grading would be done from this point all the way to the build site which we would be near the front of the property and used as a base camp to the additional structures on the property. Base camp could operate with off-grid capabilities and the accessory structures could be without utilities for a true rustic experience.


Sometimes referred to "Land in the Sky," Andes is a charming western Catskills town surrounded by beautiful nature, and full of great shops, galleries and restaurants. Read more about the area and the nearby town of Bovina and Margaretville in our Town Guides.
