Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it has a potential pond site, stonewalls and lots of nature to enjoy. All this plus access to Hunter Lake and everything Sullivan County has including Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, area lakes, hiking trails, Resorts World Casino, Kartrite Water Park, Monticello Motor Club, and more!

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

After a thorough site evaluation and site analysis we would approach this property in stages. The first stage would be to create access onto the property by clearing for driving access. The selective site clearing would address clearing trees, removing stumps and grading the ground as needed. We also strive to be gentle on the land and place structures where they belong instead of straight clearing land. As part of this rough-in stage the same process would continue for the build site, accessory structures and any additional dwellings like an ADU. Once this stage is completed we can begin securing the necessary utilities including well, septic, electric and cable. Coordination of these service providers should be started sooner rather than later.
