One of the few remaining available large parcels in an area of Olive Township with some world renowned homes (as featured on TV) offers the opportunity to create a personal vision of a country home with privacy, and excellent view potential..."even of the reservoir" according to the property owner’s recollection of walking the lands higher elevations decades ago. There is a lovely site, not too far above and off the road, yet very private in its own right, where one can camp or glamp as you wish. A well, already located there, and buried electric service cable can provide either a temporary site during construction of a main house at a higher elevation, or a permanent house for guests or caretaker in the future. One would likely want to build farther back from the quiet country road, at an even higher elevation to take advantage of views believed to be obtainable again. (See online topographical maps and photos.) The property is on both sides of the road and affords protection, if desired, or perhaps the ability to subdivide the parcel into what seems to be approximately 25 acres below and about 35 acres on the upper side of Acorn Hill Road. The acreage features extensive stone walls creating large rectangular patches of land that would once have been meadows. Built with great amounts of labor, if these walls could talk. Now, they provide a beautiful vision of a day gone by. The land is in some areas more gradually sloping, but in any event, certainly accessible with smart driveway planning to one’s choice elevation. (To take advantage of the potential mountain and Reservoir views) The parcel is located minutes from miles of walking trails and the soon to open Rail Trail along the Ashokan Reservoir, this spot will only grow in desirability. It is also within easy driving range of Woodstock, Stone Ridge, Kingston, Phoenicia, skiing, tubing, and the fabulous Phoenicia Festival of the Voice. (Not to mention The Phoenicia Diner). If you have a dream of creating a fantastic getaway, check out this property thoroughly. It might just make your dream come true.
