Lost Lake Resort in Sullivan County — which has approved plans for the largest subdivision ever approved in New York state — is seeking buyers.

Josh Goldflam, co-founder of Manhattan-based Highcap Group, is marketing the property, which is asking $22 million.

The property in the town of Forestburgh spans 2,079 acres in the Catskill Mountains and is fully permitted, according to the listing. The completed project would include 2,577 home lots, 30 single-family cottages, 40 multi-family buildings, and a 32-room inn. The gated community would also have an 18-hole golf course, a boat dock, a 1,000-acre wildlife preserve and access to private rivers and streams.

Amenities at the planned community would have a clubhouse, a restaurant and bar, an 8,000-square-foot conference center, a spa and fitness center and a pool and bath house. Tennis courts will also be on the property, along with a sales office.

The project was first pitched in late 2007 by upscale resort builder and golf course development firm Double Diamond Companies, which is selling the property. Double Diamond, based in Dallas, Texas, has built gated subdivision resorts in Pennsylvania and Texas, but has faced numerous delays in upstate New York.

The site is close to the Monticello Raceway & Motor Club, as well as the Resorts World Casino.
