The most prominent physical feature of Pine Plains real estate is Stissing Mountain which at 1,403 ft (428 m). elevation, towers over the local area. The mountain is formed of pre-cambrian gneiss that remains after numerous cycles of glaciation have scoured and reformed the surrounding terrain. A decommissioned fire tower at the top of the mountain is a popular destination for locals and visitors alike, and offers excellent sights of the surrounding countryside
Pine Plains real estate was once known for its dairy farms, but horse farms have proliferated since the 1970’s, when New York State established its Thoroughbred Breeding and Development Fund. Amid and beyond the green pastures and board fences, country roads wind through pristine stretches of woodland and rolling hills with mountain views and a luminous horizon. In this northeastern corner of Dutchess County, second-home owners tend to be privacy seekers and nature lovers, many with weekday lives in publishing, advertising and other media businesses.
