231 Joes Hill Road, 2 2, Brewster, NY 10509  

Surrounded by protected watershed land and country estates, this untouched compound affords its new caretakers absolute privacy. Criss-crossed with stone walls from when the area was called Milltown, surrounding lands were submerged to make up the reservoirs of the NYC watershed in 1891. Protected DEP land will keep this untouched natural wonder intact for generations to come. 60 miles from NYC, with express trains to GCT close by at Southeast Station. Several picture-perfect home sites overlook the breathtaking East Branch and Bog Brook Reservoirs. Potential to subdivide the land as an exclusive community, or keep intact and use as a secluded family compound. Expansive vistas, large rock formations, and 2 stone buildings dating from the late 1800's and early 1900's are unique to the area. Every season gives a new perspective on the natural beauty that abounds on this land. Currently two buildings occupy the lower portion of the property closest to Joe's Hill Road. 1920's 2 room stone cottage/root cellar, a 2 story stone structure, with cathedral ceilings, kitchen and bath. 1875 Main house, a two story quarried stone structure with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths and walk out basement. Massive 18 ft. stone fireplace in the living room is truly unique. Untouched for 15 years, this storybook like home and outbuilding await your architect. Stone foundation and walls are intact and appear to be sound, however both structures need extensive rehabilitation. Totaling 31.74 acres the property is currently comprised of 2 separate parcels containing 19.30 acres and 12.44 acres which can be sold separately or as a package. This listing at $400K is for the 12.44 acre site with stone main house and separate cottage. ++++Note to Brokers, this property is featured on NYS MLS, not Hudson Valley Gateway MLS.
