Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it is located on quiet, paved, town maintained road that ends in a cul-de-sac within a desirable Greene County location.The parcel has been partially cleared and a DEP approved septic design is forth coming – major deal in this part of the Catskills! Added bonus for a potential for mountain views, and the local utility company will bring power to the property free of charge.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

This property offers mature pines ferns and stone walls with a mountain view to the west. We would want to incoporate all of it into the overall site plan. 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.


Greene County encompasses the northern section of the Catskill Mountains and was named after American Revolutionary War General Nathanael Greene. This rural-feeling county has a population of just 47,931 and is popular for its hiking and skiing options, as well as its waterfalls, like the infamous Kaaterskill Falls. Home to riverside towns like Catskill and Athens, Greene County offers enticing dining and unique shopping opportunities.

The town of Jewett was established in 1849 and is bounded on the north by the towns of Windham and Ashland and on the west and south by Lexington and Hunter. The town got its name from the former justice of the Supreme Court, Freeborn G. Jewett. This quaint town is in between two big ski resorts Hunter & Windham, with hiking access to state trails..
