Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it is located in the highly desirable are of West Saugerties. The land is level and lightly forested with seasonal and possible year-round mountain views. Total privacy but also just seven miles to both the villages of Woodstock or Saugerties, and minutes from Catskills hiking. An ideal upstate locale.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

We would propose a crescent shaped driveway that would access the road from two locations. This would allow us to develop a little further into the property without disturbing too much of the natural setting. Very selective tree removal would be proposed to keep the privacy intact. Some ground grading would be required for the build site as well as for the septic and well locations.


Known for its artistic small towns filled with mom-and-pop restaurants and shops, Ulster County of New York sits along the Hudson River and has a population of nearly 182,000. This area of the state claims 1,161 square miles, of which 37 square miles is water. Ulster includes numerous parks like, Balsam Lake Mountain Wild Forest and Minnewaska State Park Preserve.

Saugerties is a charming town along the Hudson River with an ecclectic of locally owned shops, gourmet restaurants, and serene views. The local landmark is the the Saugerties Lighthouse, dating back to 1869 and perched at the mouth of the Esopus Creek. It is a short drive from the center of town and is reachable via a half-mile trail at the end of Lighthouse Drive. Read more about the area in our Saugerties Town Guide.
