On the Market
Property Type: Residential

Description: For the wild-hearted Phoenicia enthusiasts, here is an amazing, unspoiled 89+ acre parcel of secluded wilderness, just six miles away from town!! This is one of the last large Catskill Mountain parcels remaining in private ownership, and it is almost entirely surrounded by NYS "Forever Wild" Forest. Peck Hollow Road winds along the Peck Hollow Creek virtually unchanged from horse and buggy days, deep into the hollow until it becomes narrow, unpaved and seasonally-maintained. This property, dubbed the "Land in the Sky" is perfect for those seeking a simple, convenient place of solitude to escape the urban jungle and reconnect with nature, as well as those looking for a more adventurous off-grid scenario. The property includes two stream branches (from Mount Sherrril and North Dome), that join together forming the sparkling clear, fresh-flowing Peck Hollow Creek. Explore the land and among the mature hardwoods, wild blackberries and lush mountain ephemerals, you'll find remnants of bygone homestead history dating back to the original Hardenburgh Patent-- stone walls, 1800s foundations, and now-heirloom apple orchards. Location also convenient to hiking, skiing, and the best the Catskill Park has to offer, and is just two hours from the GWB. *Traditional development and construction on this parcel is limited unless electric lines are brought all the way back.
