About 3084 New York 28, 3086 Route 28

A rare commercial property in the Town of Olive with large acreage and multiple Zoning uses. This property would be ideal for immediate use as a staging area for a general construction company until future developments are completed.

Many commercial and residential opportunities are allowed for this relatively level 27 acre property with about 400’ fronting on busy Route 28 in the Hamlet of Shokan in the Town of Olive. A view of the tall Ticeteneyck Mountain is in the background of the three zoning areas that begin as Highway Business along the Route 28 with about 3 acres, then Village Business is in the middle of the property with about 10 acres, then Exurban Residential is in back with about 14 acres.

There are two houses rented out, the one in front has been extensively remodeled and has two bedrooms downstairs and a one bedroom apartment upstairs. The ranch style house in back is a single level with three bedrooms and has also been extensively remodeled and could be made handicap accessible. On either side of the front parking area are a 2 bay garage with a second floor and a single bay garage/storage building which can be rented. There is also a house trailer and a double wide shed rented out for storage near the large equipment shed in the middle of the property. There is a dry gravel driveway into where the large 120' long equipment shed is located. Framed with massive timbers there are six 20’ wide bays, each 40’ deep and almost 16’ of useable height with full width sliding doors.

The property is well drained with extensive drainage control throughout the front half with the fields and equipment staging area around the equipment barn. The half of the property behind the large barn is sloped so drainage goes to streams on either side of the property. Much of the land is presently being used for construction vehicle storage, and a compost/top-soil processing business.

This imminently developable large property is easily reached within two hours from NY City. Nearby are the quaint villages of Phoenicia, Bearsville, Woodstock, and Margaretville with arts and crafts and fine dining, or just enjoying their theaters and music. Nearby is a deli, town swimming pool, town parks, several formal walking trails, and shopping is in nearby Shokan and Boiceville.

All outdoor four season activities are readily available for walking and biking around the Ashokan Reservoir, trout fishing and kayaking on the Esopus Creek, hiking and hunting within high peaks of the Central Catskill Mountains, with the solitude of the vast "Forever Wild" state forest all around. These homes are located about 20 minutes from Woodstock, Mohonk, Phoenicia, Belleayre Mt. and a bit longer to Hunter Mt. for skiing or zip-line. It also borders some of the greatest Catskill Mountain hiking trails including several jaunts along environments that are on par with the best natural ecosystems in America.
Nearby is access to the large Ashokan Reservoir, home of giant trout, where NYC-DEP permits row boats and fishing. Nearby are the many trails of the State Forest, the local Davis Park, rail trail along the Ashokan Reservoir just across the highway. It is not far to the valley are Minnewaska State Park, Mohonk Preserve, Sundown Wild Forest, and the Blue Hole of the Peekamoose/Sundown gorge, etc. Many adventure recreation opportunities offer themselves with world class rock climbing in the Shawangunks, mountain biking and hiking in the Catskills, as well as Antiquing, Flea Markets, Yard Sales, Summer Stock Theater, Wine Trails, Farm Produce, U-Pick ‘Em fruits and vegetables, canoe and kayaking, fishing, hunting, and many fine restaurants within 10-20 minutes.
