Design a Dream Home on Lakefront Properties of Up to 18 Acres of Land
Byron-Hill Homebuilders has released a limited collection of new lakefront homesites for sale at Pierson Lakes, the spectacular gated residential enclave tucked away in southern Rockland County on the New York/New Jersey border — approximately 30 miles from Manhattan.
Spanning six-to-18 acres in size, the expansive properties include three locations directly on the shoreline of Cranberry Lake with pristine views over open water and direct access to endless recreation. Two lake-view homesites are also available, providing stunning vistas of the lake and the rolling hills and tree-lined ridges that surround it. Site improvements are already in place for all five properties, which are being offered at special introductory pricing through the end of the year.
Known for its two private 100-acre lakes, heavily-wooded landscape, and more than 1,000 acres of natural beauty that will house just 74 grand custom homes upon completion, Pierson Lakes offers a sense of living in a nature preserve virtually untouched by human hand. Three-fourths of the Pierson Lakes community is dedicated to the preservation of natural habitats.
The dramatic landscape and serene ambience of Pierson Lakes is thanks, in part, to the creative and environmentally-sensitive development plan conceived by Byron-Hill Homebuilders to preserve the land’s inherent wilderness character. Byron-Hill purchased the undeveloped portion of Pierson Lakes from descendants of the Pierson family whose holdings in the area date back to 1795 and who once owned 4,200 acres straddling Rockland and Bergen Counties.
“We have remained steadfast in our commitment to respect the great natural beauty of the site’s rolling, richly forested valleys, ridges and vales which remain virtually untouched,” notes JoAnne Briggs of Byron Hill. “Homes co-exist with the land, not exploit it. New residents can also feel secure in the knowledge that Pierson Lakes is an established community with an earlier phase of homes already completed, a manned-entry gatehouse, and a clubhouse.”
Residents of Pierson Lakes also enjoy a variety of unique amenities and services, including natural preservation areas, miles and miles of walking, hiking, horseback riding and cross-country skiing trails; a boathouse, community beach, and two 100-acre lakes ideal for sailing, canoeing, and fishing. All common grounds are fully maintained by a Homeowner’s Association, with a gated and guarded entry and security patrols the entire Pierson Lakes community.
Located in the westernmost corner of Ramapo Township, NY, just minutes from the New Jersey border, Pierson Lakes is approximately 30 miles away from Manhattan and close to Paramus. The community offers an ideal escape from city life for nature and sports enthusiasts, families with children or empty-nesters who all take pleasure in sharing the joys of their community with their guests, either as a year-round home or weekend retreat.
Often referred to as “Tuxedo Park South,” Pierson Lakes shares many of the attributes that have made the nearby village of Tuxedo Park a favorite destination of affluent Manhattanites for more than a century. A new wave of energy is being infused into the town of Tuxedo and the village of Sloatsburg which is enhancing the Pierson Lakes lifestyle. The Valley Rock Inn & Market recently opened in Sloatsburg, offering 17 guest rooms housed in four historic houses, an organically-focused market, garden café, pool, spa, fitness center and bike shop. An art gallery, book store, bar, and fine dining farm-to-table restaurant are also planned, all less than two miles from the entrance to Pierson Lakes.
Pierson Lakes is also just minutes from Harriman State Park, the award-winning Spook Rock Golf Course, an equestrian center, tennis courts, and numerous scenic bicycling routes.
“Pierson Lakes must truly be seen to be believed,” added Mrs. Briggs. “The community is a paradise for nature lovers, yet its proximity to the New York Thruway, I-287, and Route 17 means our residents are always well-connected. Manhattan, North Jersey, Wetchester and Upstate New York are all within easy reach.”
