Here is your opportunity to build your dream home on this rare Hudson River waterfront property just five minutes from the Kingston Rondout district. Bordering the Sleightsburgh Spit nature park at its northern tip, this 1.8-acre property offers Hudson River views including the nature park, the Rondout Lighthouse and across to the Dutchess County shoreline.
With 468 feet of water frontage, the moderate to steeply sloping lot has a well-defined building spot to site a home that would take advantage of the views. The slope of the land provides the advantage of being high up from the shoreline, yet private from the road in this quaint and peaceful hamlet.
A prominent architect engaged by the owners determined the optimal footprint and designed a modern and energy efficient house consistent with their requirements. Architectural and site plans can be made available through the architect to a committed purchaser of the property who might be interested in this turnkey opportunity.
Consistent with suggested landscaping plans and the preference to preserve a significant portion of the tree stock, the owners recently completed a careful and selective clearing of the lot to define the building envelope and reveal portions of the views. There is a roughed in walking path down to the waterfront which would be an inviting access once landscaped.
Sleightsburgh is on a bluff where the Rondout Creek meets the Hudson River. Access to the park, which has a boat launch, is just a couple of blocks from the property. There is also access to the entrance of the park through a path from the property.
Being parallel to and part of the wider Kingston metro area, this is a great location with easy access to the cultural, culinary, recreational, and historic attractions of this vibrant small city as well as the central Hudson Valley communities.
The Sleightsburgh Park, a 79-acre preserve which comprises the south peninsula at the mouth of the Rondout Creek is next door to the property. There is an easement for the Central Hudson subterranean gas lines passing through the eastern portion of the property which is kept clear and provides a useful walking path through the grounds.
Being on a cove next to the Sleightsburgh park, there are two beach sites along the property frontage which, when cleared would be an attractive feature.
There is access to town water, town sewer as well as gas and electric. Being on a slope down from the road, access to the sewer system will require a pump.
