The 90-acre parcel is legally divided into 16 lots. This subdivision was established in the late 1980’s by a former owner who envisioned a suburban-style development that never took root.
However, the subdivision could prove useful to a buyer who wishes to build a family compound or who isn’t looking for a property this large for themselves. It is no small task to have a subdivision of this nature approved today and it can be expensive and time-consuming. All that work is already done. The parcels are thoughtfully laid out, making the property ready for one or a number of homes.

Claverack property taxes are modest by most measures. All Claverack properties were reassessed a few years ago and thanks to a fiscally conservative local government, property taxes have been predictably stable. The total tax bill — Town, County and School — well under $10,000/yr.
