Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome and rather magical with a babbling brook running throughout. There is already a very sturdy bridge installed over the stream and the lot is BOH approved for a 3-bedroom home. This is a fantastic opportunity for the right buyer looking for a unique home setting in Dutchess County.

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

This property has already received some significant land improvements, including a driveway and bridge crossing so the guess work has been taken out of where to start construction. Once you cross the bridge you reach the peninsula, which is surrounded by a running stream. Here is where you would build with the question now being, how close do you want to be to the sounds of a babbling brook? The answer is - very close! Imagine drifting to sleep to the sound of the water paddling downstream. This proposed construction site is mainly level so heavy grading would not be required. Some light clearing of smaller trees and portions of the forest floor would need to be prepared. We would prepare the land enough to get the job done right without disturbing the natural setting. Depending on the new owners requirements, traditional utilities can be established or an off grid system could be considered. There is just enough space to build, grow and be nestled in the woods.


Pleasant Valley is a rural–suburban community distinguished by its three main hamlet areas: Pleasant Valley, Salt Point, and Washington Hollow. The Town is located in the center of Dutchess County, in southeastern New York State
