Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it is close to Minnewaska State Preserve and Shawangunk Mountains, perfect for the hiking and nature enthusiast. It also borders the Verkeerder Kill and offers over 14 acres of formerly engineered land to build a nature paradise.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

This project would begin with picking a path to establish the driveway. Clearing and grading would be done from this point all the way to the build site. 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. With the additional clearing needed for a few structures there is no worry as privacy will be maintained.


The town of Shawangunk is located in Southern Ulster County and is split into two separate Hamlets: Wallkill and Walker Valley. For people who have lived there for years, it’s pronounced “SHON-gum”. For others, it’s “Sha-WAN-Gunk”. Either way, this is a charming and historic town nestled among the Shawangunk mountain range.
