Amazing opportunity to acquire 265.44 surveyed acres of spectacular property with stunning views of Belleayre (less than 5 miles away) and tons of spectacular features including rolling fields, seasonal and year-round streams, an overgrown apple orchard, old Christmas tree farm, 360-degree mountain ...views, and miles of stone walls, to name a few. Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful expanses of land in the Catskills, this magnificent and mostly flat property has tons of potential and possibilities for development and subdivision or for use as a massive, private family compound. Zoning and building codes for the Town of Halcott allow for 5 acre zoning with 200 feet of road frontage per lot (there are about 7,000 feet of road frontage on Turkey Ridge Road which is maintained and plowed by the town). The town is open to many uses with a preference for responsible, tax-generating development. The highest and best usage for the land would likely be the development of single family home lots but the current code also allows for 2-family residences on each 5 acre lot as well as cluster development without variances which reduce developer costs while retaining much of the rural, preserved character of the property. Approximately 40% of the property consists of cleared fields while the remaining land is mostly untouched forest and is full of mature hardwoods (cherry, oak) and stone walls (round field stone, rough chiseled stone) providing an abundant supply of timber and stone which can be used as building material. Parts of the property are adjacent to NYC DEP land offering additional privacy. There is also an open wetland area that would be a perfect site for a potential several acre lake. The property also includes a 3Bd/1Ba farmhouse (1,072 sq ft) an added bonus for anyone wanting a place to hang their hat while getting to know and explore the land. The farmhouse was built in 1900 and could use some love. It is being sold as-is but it does have upgraded 200 amp electric, drilled well, working septic system, antique kitchens stove, attached shed, and is mainly heated by a wood burning stove. The farmhouse could make an excellent fixer upper or can be removed to make room for a new build (lots of possibilities with existing foundation, well, septic, and electric). In addition, the property's location in the Catskill Watershed means the house may be eligible for the septic system replacement program. Located in Halcott Center in Greene County, this amazing property benefits from low county taxes and is minutes from all outdoor activities imaginable including skiing (15 minutes to Belleayre Mountain Ski Center), hiking, swimming, fishing, hunting, etc., 20-25 minutes from restaurants and shops in the nearby towns of Phoenicia and Margaretville, and just 2 hours and 15 minutes from NYC.
