Located on a secluded, winding country road. Set among rolling fields and forests, surrounded by gardens, waterfall streams and stone walls the house is both rusticly simple and modern at the same time. A four season communion with nature.
Hand restored Greek Revival farmhouse. Gourmet kitchen with radiant heated hand cut local bluestone floor and cozy heating stove with full views of gardens through panoramic floor to ceiling windows. Two comfortable downstairs sitting rooms with original hand cut pine floors, one with woodburning stove and other with TV. Mahogony walled wet space with rainshower and huge windows allow you take 'outdoor' showers year round. Upstairs three bedrooms (2 queens, 2 twins) study and bathroom with soaking tub.
Fieldstone patio with Weber BBQ, stone fire pit, covered side porch, streamside hammock, and many other restful spots throughout the grounds and outbuildings.
A secluded escape from hectic city life in the ecologically protected NYC watershed (this is the water we drink.) Streams and wetlands afford abundant wildlife watching. Eagles soar overhead and coyotes howl at night. On a clear night gaze at the Milky Way and watch the shooting stars fall to earth.
Great hiking year round and skiing at Plattekill and Belleayre in the winter. Cooperstown and the All Star Village are both short antique, wine and cheese shop lined drive away (via college town Oneonta) and SUNY Delhi maintains beautiful hiking trails and a world class golf course nearby.
A great place to get away from it all with some friends or family, especially for those who love to cook. Explore the local villages and farms by day and share a home cooked meal or enjoy the local restaurants at night.+ More
