240 Catskills Acres + Farmhouse $1.2M


NEED A PLACE TO PARK SOME CASH? (I wish.) Don’t trust the stock market? Want to go back to the land in a big, big way?

Take a look at this gorgeous upstate New York property, finally on the market after 30 years. It’s a rare, unspoiled parcel at the end of a dead-end road in Bovina, N.Y.,  one of those towns “that time forgot,” in Delaware County.


Think of it as $5,000 per acre, and the house as free. It does need total renovation, according to the listing agent, but it doesn’t look half-bad in the pics.


Go here for a visual tour of the land at its wintry best, and read the well-written copy (I could probably be sold on a piece of real estate by an unusually literate listing). Among the main bullet points:

  • Adjacent to 1,100 acres of protected, never-to-be-built-on New York State land
  • Possibility of selling off 50 acres and still retaining complete and utter privacy

Split it with someone. A few people. There’s plenty to go around.

Please note: I am NOT a real-estate broker, and have no financial interest in the sale of this or any property mentioned on this blog. I just like spreading the word about unique properties and what I believe are solid investment opportunities.

    Wow. But I have a very tough time with “…the land at its wintry best” which means “shirt sleeves day” down here.

    The good thing, Terry, is that you can see the lay of the land in a way you can’t when the trees are leafed out. Mid-winter is a very propitious time for property-shopping in the Northeast!
