Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is also because it waterfront! It also comes with an existing off-grid cabin with solar, water collection and driving access.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

This project already has an off-grid cabin that can be repurposed or removed. There is an existing driving path that could be upgraded for year round use. We envision the project either expanding the current off-grid setup or establishing conventional utilities.


Directly west of Albany County is Schoharie County, New York, named after the Mohawk word for “floating wood.” Spanning 626 square miles, this county has a population of just 29,000 and encompasses Burnt-Rossman Hills State Forest. Schoharie is known for its hiking trails and breweries. The county is also packed full with historic sites, caves, and farms.

The historic Village of Richmondville is in the center of the Town of Richmondville and is northeast of Oneonta. The early village was the location of many mills and small factories. The village was incorporated in 1881. Elevations within Richmondville range from 920 feet along the Cobleskill-Richmondville boundary at Cobleskill Creek to 2,160 feet near the junction of Cross Hill Road and Dodge Lodge Road in the southeastern corner of the town. Interstate 88 passes across the town.

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