Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it is located just after the famed Hawk’s Nest, very near to the Delaware River. The land is flat and wooded with a very generous 5.2 acres, easy access to electricity on the street, and close to so many of the beautiful Delaware River attractions.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

The parcel would be best suited for a longer driveway and a dwelling that would be further in and up in elevation on the property. This project would begin with picking a path to establish the driveway. Clearing and grading would be done from this point all the way to the build site. The build site would also require some selective clearing. There is ample space here to build for a single family home with garage, studio space or accessory dwelling unit.

Sparrow Bush is a hamlet in the town of Deerpark, in Orange County, NY. The community is named after Henry L. Sparrow. The locals started to call this piece of land Sparrow’s “Bosh” (meaning Sparrow’s slope) and Sparrow’s “Bosk” (meaning Sparrow’s woods). Over time the name of the town gradually evolved into Sparrow Bush. Read more about the area and the nearby town of Port Jervis in our town guides.
