This innovative, immaculate, off-grid property features superior site design and aesthetics to maximize the natural features of the land. The long, winding, gated driveway curls past a 1/2 acre, 15 foot deep, bass stocked swim pond with generous dock space, and up towards a cabin cluster tucked in the private woods with 4 main structures including; a main 14x30 social lodge cabin, 2 heated bedroom cabanas, and a storage shed which could also be an entertainment space. The cabins are post and beam style with board and batten siding and new metal roofs. The main lodge features abundant natural light from the eyebrow windows running the whole length of the structure, and the sliding door opens invitingly to the deck and yard area. The clearing has distant southeasterly vistas - the whole place has an endearing summer camp vibe, and has even featured in Cabin Life magazine!

The property is set up to be efficient and worry-free with a thoughtful series of off-grid amenities and spatial arrangements. Running water is provided via the solar powered well pump, and the main lodge is powered by an ultra quiet Honda 3000 watt inverter generator. The refrigerator and range run on propane, as well as the on demand hot water heater. The full bath in the main lodge and 1/2 bath in the primary cabana both have 24/7 solar fans running off of 12 volt deep cycle marine batteries to keep air moving for the composting toilets. Heat in the 2 bedroom cabins comes from wall mount propane heaters, and the lodge has a woodstove. The site provides ample common space to share with family and friends in the lodge or by the campfire, while the insulated/heated separate cabins allow for periods of privacy. In addition, the site is capable of being developed further with a more robust solar array with battery bank, or a larger propane generator.
The lot itself progresses from the town maintained dirt road, through a flat, partially wetland section with McMurdy Brook gurgling through, then up slightly to the creatively shaped pond site with space for recreation or possible additional quarters, and then into the woods with rock walls and natural rock features to explore. The cabin site is nicely level with room for parking or additional development. The property well-located to enjoy the abundance of recreational, artistic, and culinary delights of this burgeoning region (minutes to Hobart/Stamford, <30 minutes to Andes/Delhi/Oneonta, and under 3 hours to the GWB). Come take a look at this truly unique and awe-inspiring property.
