Unique long-term investment opportunity -- 89+ acres of secluded and off-grid wilderness, just six miles away from Phoenicia! One of the last large Catskill Mountain lands remaining in private ownership, and it is almost entirely surrounded by NYS "Forever Wild" lands. It feels so remote and quiet, like you've stepped back in time. No road noise, views of nothing but nature and the darkest night skies. The property's forest is mixed hardwoods, rich in biodiversity, plenty to hunt and forage (mushrooms! ginseng!). It has not been logged in decades. There's even a large, level meadow area that gets excellent sun. The land includes two pristine stream branches, (from Mount Sherrril and North Dome), that join together forming the sparkling clear, fresh-flowing Peck Hollow Creek. Peck Hollow Road winds along the Creek, virtually unchanged from horse and buggy days, deep into the hollow until it becomes narrow, unpaved and seasonally-maintained. Up in the forest, you'll find remnants of bygone homestead history dating back to the original Hardenburgh Patent-- stone walls, 1800s foundations, and now-heirloom apple orchards. This property, dubbed the "Land in the Sky" can be a simple, convenient place of solitude, a more adventurous energy-independent eco-scenario, and an investment in consideration of what the future and climate change may bring. Convenient to hiking, skiing, and the best the Catskill Park has to offer, just two hours from the GWB.
