Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it is private and secluded in a very beautiful area of Columbia County, and is only minutes away from the Berkshires and very near the highly desirable location of Hudson. There is also an existing foundation and well onsite.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

The property has an old foundation, existing well and septic system. We would re-purpose what we could regarding the well and septic, if not new installations would be required. A driveway would need to be established. The property is not heavily wooded so clearing and grading would be minimal. The build site would require some grading to accommodate the final design. Additional space is available for outbuildings like a garage, workshop or studio.


Hillsdale is a town in Columbia County, NY, near Hudson, NY and Great Barrington, MA. The town has several restaurants and a general store, among other businesses. Hillsdale is known for its hilly landscape and is near Bash Bish Falls, Taconic State Park, and the Catamount ski area.
