Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome for skiers because its located equidistant to Hunter Mountain & Windham Mountain Ski Resorts. The lot is flat, mostly wooded and has an existing drilled well, existing driveway, and electric on site. The parcel boundaries are marked by original stone walls providing an extra layer of charm. This is a winner with so many improvements and in such a great location.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

There are existing land improvements that could be repurposed as part of the new proposed site plan. The open area by the road could support the main dwelling or a larger garage with lofted sleeping space above would be ideal. The main dwelling could be situated further into the woods to create more privacy and distance from the road. Selective clearing and extending the driveway would be needed to achieve this.


Greene County encompasses the northern section of the Catskill Mountains and was named after American Revolutionary War General Nathaniel 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.

Land Prep Estimate : $30,000 - $45,000
