A very interesting property located in a very interesting little piece of the Adirondacks!

Beginning life as a saw mill and lumber yard, this long since closed business was a highly used wood processing facility for years and miles around. Today it sits, neglected, looking rather rough on the outside from years of harsh weather and overgrown trees against the peeling paint, and yet surprisingly dry, solid and very usable on the inside. This property is prime for creative thinkers. The main building would be wonderful for a variety of uses. A workshop for woodworkers, furniture builders, classic car or boat enthusiasts or artists of any kind or a conversion to living space are just some of the obvious ideas. A great location for an antiques shop also. There are two old barns and a few other small old decrepit structures on the land. Lots of old timbers, remnants of the old saw mill itself, for the woodworkers to salvage too.

The property consists of 7.73 acres, zoned APA Hamlet, local Commercial / Residential with 386 feet of road frontage on State Route 8. The land rises high in the rear with some modest but nice mountain views. Multiple building sites for new home construction and favorable zoning for development should interest builders. This could be a really nice property for a family compound, with less than a quarter mile walk to the Hudson River and the center of the Hamlet of Riparius. The village is more recently becoming a haven for artists with shops open to welcome the appreciative. Canoe, kayak, and white water rafting are also activities associated with this wonderful little village with the Hudson River running right through the center, not to mention the close proximity to both Loon Lake and Gore Mountain Ski Center.

If you want to be near many popular year round Adirondack destinations yet tucked away in a sleepy little village, Riparius might be just the right spot for you.
