Highland NY 12528- Investors Dream- My Dream
I have been blogging the past few days about the untapped potential for investment in my home town of Highland NY. Quinn Realty Group is the premier real estate agency for the Highland and New Paltz areas. This area I like to call the Gunks to the Hudson is the area in and around the 13 miles from the Shawangunk Mountains, New Paltz, NY to the Hudson River in Highland, NY. This is an amazing area of natural beauty that attracts many visitors who come to enjoy all the area has to offer.
Highland is an area ripe with investment opportunity. Today the feature of this post is a group of buildings on the popular Hudson Valley Rail Trail. Previously an antiques center known as, Vintage Village, the group of buildings, is currently on the market listed by Quinn Realty Group.
Before Vintage Village the buildings housed, Pratt’s Lumber for many years. It was a small town lumber company where we would go to purchase lumber, hardware and paint.
I walk on the Hudson Valley Rail Trail and to the Walkway over the Hudson regularly. Anyone who passes these buildings, while on the trail, cannot help but be caught in imagination of the endless possibilities that these now vacant buildings can hold.
My favorite of the buildings is the restored 1889 sawmill. The building itself is approximately 4,500 square feet. The Twaalfskill Creek flows under building, operating a waterwheel. With frontage and access from Vineyard Avenue, this would be an amazing restaurant, retail store or offices.
Across the parking lot/driveway is a large multi-use building. It is 9,000 square feet on 2 levels. Currently there are two loading docks. I picture this as a perfect spot for a mini-mall, art center, or luxury condos. Come on, can you imagine having the beauty of the Twaalfskill Creek, and Hudson River moments from your door!
The former freight house is now used as a scooter, bicycle rental shop. This too has tremendous potential. The rentals are a great idea but the possibilities are endless.
This is an incredible opportunity for the investor with a vision for what this town is about to become. For pricing information and to learn about the Town’s revised Comprehensive Plan, call to schedule a meeting. The highly experienced Realtor Team and I, of Quinn Realty Group area available to discuss the areas potential and to facilitate meetings with Town Officials to discuss property uses.
