Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it’s tucked into the trees and flush against the mountain side, offering a lot of privacy. The land is level and partially cleared, and extremely well-priced at under $4k per acre. It is located very near to the thousands of acres of Catskill Forest Preserve, and also the East Branch Delaware River and Pepacton Reservoir

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

This steep mountain property would be best suited with a build site at a lower elevation near the road frontage. The parcel already has a cleared area that could be developed further. There is ample space here to accommodate a main dwelling and accessory structures. A trail could be developed to get further up and back into the property. An off-grid dwelling could be built as well.
