Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it is very manageable and easy to imagine how to build on it, with the convenience of being right down the road to the village of Catskill and the many attractions of the area.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

This project would begin with picking a path to establish the driveway. Minor clearing and grading would be needed for access onto the property and to the building location. 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.


The village of Catskill is not only the namesake of the famous mountains range it abuts, but is also widely thought to be the birthplace of a uniquely American art movement. Nestled along the banks of the Hudson River, with the Catskill Creek flowing through it, the village is a classic historic river town. The Victorian storefronts line Main Street with a variety of restaurants, bakeries and boutiques, and along the river’s edge lies the Thomas Cole House, once home to the famous painter and founder of the Hudson River School of Art.
