222 Miller Road, Claverack, New York, 12513
A long gradual drive on a firm farm road brings one to a cleared building site with absolutely stunning views of the entire Catskill Mountain Range. This view makes it feel like the mountains are practically in your back yard…not just a ribbon of blue but huge mountains against the sky. Total privacy and quiet are two of the main features buyers look for when thinking about building. This farm offers both along with outstanding views. A big plus is that electric has already been brought to this unique building site. Trails and farm roads throughout the 125 plus acres are perfect for hiking, mountain biking, cross-country skiing or hunting. The Loomis Creek runs through the extremely private and quiet acreage perfect for attracting game. No restrictions or easements have been placed on the land; opportunities exist to create a family compound. Nearby on the land a barn was converted into a livable space, with water and septic in place. Needs work but with a little effort it could become the perfect hunting cabin or lodging for a caretaker. A garage was also constructed here to house farm machinery.
Location, location, location. Claverack is situated in the middle of some of the county’s most beautiful farmland. Well under two hours from New York City, it is a quick drive to Hudson with its shopping, art galleries, spas, entertainment, fine dining and the Amtrak train line. Head west or east to ski, north to Tanglewood or Jacob’s Pillow for superb music and dance during the summer months. An easy drive southwest brings you to Red Hook and Rhinebeck. Due south find the town of Pine Plains that has enjoyed many recent improvements. Southeast and under a half hour brings one to Millerton, another very active town with The MovieHouse to enjoy world class opera, ballet and plays simulcast from New York, London and Europe. Living in this rural paradise no longer means being cut-off from high culture. There are several excellent locations for golf, especially at Lake Copake with its lovely 18-hole semi-private course and clubhouse with an excellent restaurant…both open to the public. So much is offered in this area, it is hard to find the time for everything. Farm to table has become a business for many in the Hudson Valley and the local restaurants serve the best the land has to offer.
