Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome due to it’s accessibility to so many great towns and attractions. For someone looking to create a family weekend getaway or a rental property, this location offers a wide range of options for hiking, kayaking, dining and shopping. Its 3.3 acres of lightly wooded land offers enough privacy to feel that you are away from the hustle and bustle, but keeps you connected to the mainly highlights of the area.

How We Would Build

For this project, we would not reinvent the wheel. This lot is really straightforward and there is roadside access to electrical. We would build a driveway off of Old Post Road to wind back slightly further than where the neighbors homes are sited. This will allow for a bit more privacy, especially when the trees fill in during the summer and fall seasons. We would opt for a Big Bar or a Village scheme on this lot to maximize future rental potential, but also be able to invite groups of friends and family for weekends spent hiking, kayaking, and exploring New Paltz, Rosendale and High Falls.
