3.8± Acres in Keene Valley, NY - SOLD

  • 3.8± Acres in Keene Valley, NY - Mountain View

Ideal location, this 3.8± acreage parcel is not far from the village and only a short distance off a public road.  Nice mountain views and solitude.  Not far from hiking trails.  This parcel has several advantages:  (1)  The right to build a dwelling on this parcel has been ‘grandfathered’, meaning that a new owner does not need to get a permit from the Adirondack Park Agency.  A permit from the Town of Keene would be necessary, however.  It will not be unreasonably withheld and the process of getting the permit is fairly simple, whereas getting an APA permit is more challenging.     (2) The shared driveway to the building site is not as long as many private driveways in the area.  The driveway needs improvement.  Once improved, however, it would be relatively easy to maintain and plow.  It is not too steep and there is plenty of room to put the snow.  (3)  The ease of access will help reduce the costs of building a home on this property vs. building on other lots with more difficult access.  (4)  This is a quiet, private location, yet not far from the village. (5) One possibility is that an owner could join the year-round community water system in the area.  This system serves the homes in the lower part of Adrian’s Acres.  This might be less expensive than other options and could avoid the risks and costs of drilling a well.
