Why This Lot is Awesome

This land is awesome because it offers natural beauty, mountain views and abundant wildlife in the area. Stone walls frame this parcel that fronts on two country roads. Minutes from both Hunter and Windham Resorts!

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

The first goal of this project would be to make way for a driveway, home site, septic location, and any accessory structures that are part of the overall siteplan. Once the ground is selective cleared a construction driveway could be installed which will allow bigger machinery to access the build site for well and septic requirements. Electrical and cable utilities should be secured during these early phases of ground preparation. Once these groundwork items are completed this parcel could be on its way to begin construction.


Greene County encompasses the northern section of the Catskill Mountains and was named after American Revolutionary War General Nathanael Greene. This rural-feeling county has a population of just 47,931 and is popular for its hiking and skiing options, as well as its waterfalls, like the infamous Kaaterskill Falls. Home to riverside towns like Catskill and Athens, Greene County offers enticing dining and unique shopping opportunities.

The town of Jewett was established in 1849 and is bounded on the north by the towns of Windham and Ashland and on the west and south by Lexington and Hunter. The town got its name from the former justice of the Supreme Court, Freeborn G. Jewett. This quaint town is in between two big ski resorts Hunter & Windham, with hiking access to state trails.
