Welcome to
11 Berkowitz Drive
Granville, New York
This sprawling 3,100+/- sq. ft., red brick ranch, was designed by, and custom built for the
late Senator and Mrs. Albert Berkowitz.
Located on a beautiful dead end village street,
named after Senator Berkowitz, is this
magnificent home, surrounded by 8.8 gorgeous acres.
The moment you're able to see the home, you'll realize this is a very special home!!
The landscape design, and setting, is phenomenal.
The current owners are continuously striving to create,
and maintain the landscape, in the utmost fashion.
In fact, they were awarded the coveted
"Slate Valley Garden Club Beautification Award".
Every year they add more, and more flowers, and
flowering shrubbery. The landscape is captivating!!
The lush green yard is fed by a underground sprinkler system.
It's fair to assume you'll be very impressed by the dynamic nature of this astonishing landscape.
This private, backyard paradise, is a one of a kind!
