Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it is partially cleared and tucked neatly into the forest, with proximity to three access points into the protected Catskill Preserve. The parcel boasts and abundance of mature trees, plenty of level, buildable land, a gentle incline, approximately 200ft of road frontage and a dynamite location between Hunter and Windham Mountains.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

We would propose a longer driveway to get up and into the property. The goal here is to get to the naturally cleared area which would be the ideal location to establish the dwelling site. Some ground grading may be required but few trees would need to be removed. Utilities could be brought underground to the build site. There is enough area to also accommodate accessory structures and potentially an accessory dwelling.


Greene County encompasses the northern section of the Catskill Mountains and was named after American Revolutionary War General Nathanael Greene. This rural-feeling county has a population of just 47,931 and is popular for its hiking and skiing options, as well as its waterfalls, like the infamous Kaaterskill Falls. Home to riverside towns like Catskill and Athens, Greene County offers enticing dining and unique shopping opportunities.

The town of Jewett was established in 1849 and is bounded on the north by the towns of Windham and Ashland and on the west and south by Lexington and Hunter. The town got its name from the former justice of the Supreme Court, Freeborn G. Jewett. This quaint town is in between two big ski resorts Hunter & Windham, with hiking access to state trails.

Land Prep Estimate : $50,000 - $75,000
