Why This Lot is Awesome
This is How We Would Build on This Lot
The area was originally known as the "Middle Ground" between Southold and Riverhead. As more people moved into the district to farm they gave it the name Franklinville, after Benjamin Franklin. Eventually, about 30 or 40 houses were built there. After a while, someone in Albany found out that there were two Franklinvilles in New York State. Only one could have a post office so the residents changed its name - this time to Laurel. Read more about things to do in the area in our Mattituck Town Guide.

This lot is awesome because it is beautiful waterfront land on a wildlife preserve, just minutes from the Beaverkill River, East Branch of Delaware, and the downtowns of Roscoe and Livingston Manor. A true Sullivan county gem - at an amazing price - with nearby access to the Delaware for fishing, tubing, and swimming. .
This lot is awesome because it offers 17 private acres on a town maintained, dead-end road, with long road frontage on a quiet country road lined with giant old Sugar Maples and an old stone wall. This gently sloping parcel has fantastic south exposure and possible views with some clearing. There is close proximity to utilities only 300 feet away from the high plateau, due to a small residential utility line that runs along the northern boundary. It is close to Mount Snow and Stratton Resorts, as well as the lakes and mountains of the Green Mountain National Forest.
This lot is awesome because it is very reasonably priced, has access to many points with the Berkshires, Boston, New York and Connecticut, and offers plenty of road frontage on two maintained roads.
This lot is awesome because it has views for days in the beautiful Vernon Valley, conveniently located only one hour from New York City in the New Jersey Highlands. Major bonus points for an already permit-approved 6 bedroom septic.
