Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because there are several build location opportunities with stunning sneak peaks of the Catskills. Bonus points for an easement to obtain Town Water Supply. This is a very rare feature for raw land parcels.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

We would choose to establish a main dwelling near the front of the property and place a second smaller dwelling which could be an off grid dwelling at the top of the property. Once the overall site plan is determined the ground work could begin. The first step would be to develop a driveway for access. The second step would be to prepare the build locations. Conventional utilities like electric, well and septic would all need to be established. There may be an option for municipal water. The second dwelling would be located at the top of the property. This off grid setup has many options to be self-sustaining for uses like overnight stays, studio space, social gatherings or just a place to have some solitude while enjoying a view.


Ghent is tucked away in the beautiful Hudson Valley of Upstate New York, centrally located in Columbia County and northeast of the city of Hudson. Founded in 1818 from parts of Chatham, Claverack and Kinderhook, it was named for the peace treaty that brought the War of 1812 to a close, re-establishing U.S. independence from Great Britain.
