Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it abuts 66 acres of NYC Forever Wild land. Not interested in neighbors

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

At $3k / acre with adjacency to a large, protected parcel owned by New York City, Kleis Road is an excellent buy. This is a lot we would recommend developing into a responsible subdivision, with 6 lots that range from 6 - 10 acres. For the right buyer, the opportunity is to build a road into the center of the lot, entitle lot #'s 2 - 6 as separate parcels, and keep lot #1 as your personal home site. With road access and some light improvements, each new lot could fetch upwards of $6.5k / acre for the remaining 35 acres, or roughly $225,000 in gross sales. HUTS can help permit plans on those lots to increase the sale price (by selling the lot and home design) and help insure the responsible, long-term use of your neighboring properties.


The historic town of Fleischmanns was once a summer colony for wealthy aristocrats in the 1800s. You can still see evidence of the past in the many well preserved Victorian homes in the town set right at the base of the popular Belleayre Mountain.

Property Details

Sweeping Views in Fleischmanns Next to NYC Forever Wild Land

Project Difficulty — Hard
We rate this project at hard because there are no available or existing utilities, the lot is vast and remote, and there is currently no finished driveway from the road to the rest of the lot. The site prep estimate accounts for all of these factors.
Setting — Hop, skip and a jump to civilization
Nearby several towns.
Environment — Forest, Mountain
This parcel features very rare mountain top with views and lush woods with some small pockets of open space. For the intrepid developer, this site could be a phenomenal opportunity.
Land preparation —
This lot requires excavation, clearing, and installation of all utilities. Depending on utilities desired, off grid vs on grid, this would influence overall development costs as well as final location of building sites.
Land Use — Multiple structures possible
Potential for multiple structures and homesites.
