Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it is an excellent price for this very desirable area, with mature oak trees, a small stream, and old rock walls. The lot is nearby the many amenities of this pastoral pocket of Columbia County, but also offers a great deal of privacy as it is surrounded by protected land.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

This project fronts on two separate roads and if possible we'd like to use both to access this project. We would take the more private road to establish an entrance to the main residential dwelling. This would be the main development site with home, garage and out buildings as needed. The second access could be for a smaller guest residence like a guest house or ADU. Depending on overall site plan it could also be more off grid for your own place to stay while guests stay in the main dwelling.


This area was first settled in 1757. The Mohicans and the settlers thought Spencers Town was in the colony of Massachusetts Bay, but New York's jurisdiction was established before the Revolution. Located near the NY and MA state borders this location offers easy access to many region opporutnities.
