Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it offers valley views and it already has a gravel driveway. As a bonus there is a seasonal stream along one side of the property.  Located in the legendary Catskill Mountains, renowned for its history, local culture and wildlife, outdoor recreation is available nearby in nearly every direction. Within a short drive, enjoy Mine Kill State Park with swimming, boating, hiking, fishing and snowmobiling.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

Since this property already has a gravel driveway in place, the next step would be to make way for the home site, septic location, and any accessory structures. Once the ground is prepped a construction driveway can be installed. Preparations for a well and septic could be next. Electrical and cable utilities should be secured during the early phases of groundwork preparation. Once these groundwork items are completed this parcel could be on its way to the next phase of the project.


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 town name of Summit is derived from a peak that was thought to be the highest elevation in the county. The Town of Summit is on the western border of the county and is northeast of Oneonta. The first settlement began around 1794, after the end of the American Revolution.  Summit was created in 1819 from parts of the Towns of Jefferson and Cobleskill.
