Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it offers total seclusion on 35 acres – along with a private bass fishing pond – while only being 5 minutes from the village of Old Chatham and many of the attractions of the Hudson Valley and the Berkshires!

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

Development of this land would begin by establishing access onto the property by clearing and grading for a driveway. We feel a sweeping driveway past the pond would not only be scenic by it's also the path of least resistance to the building site. We would suggest building a little further back from the pond and across the stream to get up a little higher in elevation so the home site can overlook the pond from a distance.


Chatham, a charming village in historic Columbia County with a thriving community of independently owned retail shops, restaurants and a vibrant arts scene. Main Street boasts beautifully preserved architecture, including the landmark pendulum clock dating back to 1872 – the only one of its kind in original condition.
