A RARE land offering on a quiet historic road in the town of Olive with commanding views of the Catskills, and their star peak: High Point Mt. The parcel is surrounded by fields and woods of larger estate land holdings owned for decades and providing an evocative historic landscape. Within it's boundaries are a cathedral-like stand of mature large White Pines, moss covered rocky-outcroppings, historic stone walls over a varied and interesting topography including a wet meadow. With selected clearing, a home site would be assured of gorgeous views of nearby mountains. The property is very close to the new Ashokan Quarry Trail as well as the popular Ashokan Promenade trail over the Ashokan Reservoir. The Boiceville and Shokan trail heads to the Ashokan rail trail are close by as well as Bread Alone's new bakery/restaurant. Ski areas are about a 1/2 hour northward. 2 hours from NYC and 20 minutes to Woodstock and Kingston. The land has it all----solitude in a natural setting, spectacular views, ecological diversity, and close to extraordinary opportunities for walking and biking. The setting is dramatic and sublime.
