Own a Slice of the Shawangunk Ridge in this Gardiner NY Compound, $789K

There’s more to this Gardiner NY compound than meets the eye. Let’s take closer look…

The listing for this property invites you to buy “a chunk of the ‘Gunks,” and what a chunk it is, indeed. We’re talking about nearly 100 acres of land here, the back of which borders the Minnewaska State Park in Ulster County. In other words, this is prime outdoorsy real estate for nature enthusiasts.

Or, many nature enthusiasts, as is the case here. In addition to 92.5 acres of land, the property includes four structures and residences: Two houses (and pond!) near the road, a farmhouse, and a converted barn with a second pond. The current owners are renting out some of the property.

There are a lot of options for a property such as this one. You could continue to rent out the other houses and live in one of them. You could sell of the residences and keep the rest for yourself. You could build an additional main house on the property and continue to rent the others, long-term or otherwise. After all, this section of land is connected to some big draws in this area, like Minnewaska right next door. We could go on, but you get the picture…

It appears that some of the residences on the property might need a bit of work. Case in point, this quaint stone cottage:

But, hey. You can’t beat those ridge views, right?
