- Address 298 Stony Kill Road
PRIVATE.....TRANQUIL....BEAUTIFUL 7.5 acres of land set quietly on a country road hugging the Shawangunks only a few minutes from Minnewaska State Park with glacial lakes and miles of walking/ biking trails. Stone Ridge, High Falls and New Paltz are all within 10 to 20 minutes of the land. Gently sloping and situated at the base of the stunning Shawangunk ridge, the property is a diverse mix of tall hardwoods including red oak, white oak, hickory and pines. As you enter the main body of the parcel, you will find a smooth surfaced, quartz-rich mountain outcrop, covered in fine mosses, blueberry bushes and ferns. An enchanting little trail leads further through a copse of mountain laurel into the open woods with quaint old logging trails. Here, three white-gray stone walls crisscross across the landscape, centered about a little knoll offering a lovely house site with a panoramic view of the forest. A small seasonal stream runs through the southwest corner of the property, which imaginatively could be reshaped into a small water feature near the potential home site. The entire property is buffered, to the south by a 100 foot natural land easement, to the west by the seller's large 50 acre parcel, and to the east and north by 14 acres protected under covenants, providing preservation of the landscape created from the Seller's original 100 +/- acre tract. All located within only a 5 to 8 minute drive, enjoy apple-picking , brick-oven pizza at nearby Westwind Orchards, drinks at Arrowood Farm-Brewery, or pasture raised meats from Applestone's in Stone Ridge. Build a peaceful getaway...and ease into a rich life-style of getting in touch with the supremely beautiful natural world that only the Hudson Valley can deliver.
